While engaged in one of my favorite pastimes, designing my dream dorm room, I came across the Wonder Washer. The website describes its practical uses:
Wonder Washer portable washing machine goes anywhere! Perfect for dorms where space is limited and doing the wash is often procrastinated. No more trips to your dorm laundry room or the local Laundromat. The Wonder Washer is ideal for small loads and delicates. No longer will you have to do your laundry just when you run out of your personal garments.
No plumbing needed! Just fill with water, detergent, and laundry and set timer for up to 15 minutes on high or low cycle.
