Laundry Day!

Click on photo to enlarge
Today was really like spring here, T-Shirt weather all day, so I decided to do laundry in the James Washer (that's really the name of the thing), we bought it from Real Goods about 6 years ago.
It's bolted to the back porch and Peggy & I do most of our laundry out here in the summer.
We love the exercise and being outside as we do our chores.
Peggy has some neck & back issues and says the exercise of working the pendulum arm is really good for working out kinks in her neck.
We use non-polluting, phosphate free, bio-degradable laundry and dish detergents.
The washboard on the wall is for scrubbing out tough stains (and sometimes it's a musical instrument).

YES on the "has back and neck issues" and the exercise helps! I had a kink under my shoulder blade yesterday so shoveling horse manure out of the truck loosened it up for the POP! of husband playing chiropracter later. Oh, and we got potatoes planted! Well I'll be!

Re: laundry detergent, can you give a brand name and where you got it? For greywater recycling.

I love wringer washing machines and have had several! (Mine were electric though.)
Do you have to bucket in the water?

We fill it with a hose from a nearby faucet and normally use cold water.
There is also a drain faucet for our hot water line within a few feet so if we need to use hot water for some reason we can.
When we're doing laundry we just keep the hose under pressure with a trigger nozzle attached for rinsing & refilling.
The two of us can usually get by with just a few small loads each week (my clothes, Peg's clothes, towels & sheets etc.).

The laundry detergent is called ECOS Free & Clear.

We buy it from Sol Foods Market here in Big Bear City.
