Wash Day

We’ve always used the local laundrette for washing, so didn’t have a washing machine on board. But then a neighbour was selling a second hand small Good Ideas twin tub for a very reasonable price so I thought it would be useful to have, for washing things in between big washes at the laundrette, or for when we’re out and about on the waterways. It’s great because it only uses 200W and doesn’t heat the water itself. I use the shower head attachment to fill it with hot water from the Paloma, then once things are washed and rinsed the spinner is surprisingly effective at removing most of the water, so that they only need hanging up overnight, and don’t produce much condensation. I use it in the shower tray so that the water can be pumped overboard down the shower drain. Very impressed!

  1. Hi,
    We got a new one of these a couple of weeks ago and the spinner stopped spinning after about 10 uses. I was going to send it back but took the back off this afternoon and managed to fix it. yeah.

    We put ours on the back deck and hang the hose over the side. We fill it with a bucket and have found it to be ok with cold water.

    Now its working again we are very happy with it.

  2. I had one of those! I put it on the back deck and filled it with the kettle!
