Laundry Washing Machine

Our Panda Washer/Spinner is no longer in production, but The Costway has identical features and specifications.

However, for clarification and honesty, I will say, “Panda” to describe our machine which has traveled with us since we started out four years ago. This machine is our tough little travel buddy. It was the first piece of equipment we bought for this journey and it is always a pleasure to use it and a joy to discover how versatile it is. Here are some of the reasons why we love our Panda:

1) Independence from commercial and campground laundry facilities. It is distressing and shamefully commonplace that most coin laundry facilities do not have hot enough water for sanitation purposes. So, we wash our own laundry, spin it, and then hang it out in the sun to finish the job. On rainy days we will use commercial dryers which are not as problematic as the washers.

2) It’s an allergy-free solution. Liquid soap residue in commercial machines have harmful preservatives that make me miserable. Washing my own laundry on my own turf keeps me healthy.

3) Gentle on clothing. Jim’s Tommy Bahama shirts last longer. I wear high quality, lightweight, quick-dry outfitter clothing and with this machine my wardrobe will probably outlast me.

4) Perfect outdoor dog shower! We fill it with warm water and place it on top of a picnic table. As Pico stands obedient as always on the bench we lower the drain hose to wet him as needed.

5) Can you believe it’s a salad spinner!!! I mean, it’s a fantastic salad spinner – like commercial quality. The spinner makes the lettuce perfectly dry with no damage. When we discovered this we threw away the wimpy salad spinner which took up half of an entire locker.

6) Party time! Fill it with ice and cold drinks for Happy Hour with friends!

7) This machine pays for itself. Coin laundries are expensive and they are not even inspected by the health department.

The Panda will do everything a conventional household washer can do, just in much smaller loads.

On big cleaning days we keep the Panda going all day long while we do other chores. It has a 5.5 gallon capacity, which allows us to wash every textile we own. We donated clothing, bedding or linens that were too bulky for the Panda. We can wash a queen sized bed sheet plus two pillow cases in a single wash, or three large bath towels, or a pair of jeans and two Tommy Bahama shirts, or about a dozen small lightweight garments such as underwear, and about a dozen dishtowels and/or dishcloths.

When we have water and sewer connectivity, we place the washing machine on our built-in shower bench and use hot water from the shower head to fill the washer (We only use eco-friendly soap products) To drain the water out, we lower the drain hose and release the water into our grey water tank. The technology is very basic. With weekly use, we’ve never had a breakdown or any problem with this machine. We love our brave little Panda!
