Our Analysis

The biggest complaint about the Wonder Washer is that it does not have a rinse cycle. The soapy water must be emptied manually after use, which can be difficult because the bucket gets heavy, and garments must then be rinsed separately with clean water. A few people comment that the Wonder Washer looks cheaply made, and that it shakes and is noisy. Several caution against washing socks in this machine because they can become entangled. Also, the machine does not offer a way to regulate or measure water temperature.

Knitters have appropriated the Wonder Washer for an unintended use: to felt their wool. Knitters say that felting in a Wonder Washer is better than in a regular washing machine because the Wonder Washer allows you to control the amount of water that is used, and the lint and fibers that are left behind are easily removed from the bucket, instead of clogging up water lines.

The Wonder Washer has not been included in any professional comparison tests, but we found numerous owner reviews of the Wonder Washer on websites such as Amazon.com and AssociatedContent.com. Some of these reviews offer very detailed instructions and helpful tips. The use of the Wonder Washer is also demonstrated in several videos on YouTube.com.
