The Laundry Pod from Storebound is an easy-to-use portable washing machine that trades in cords for human energy. It requires only a few minutes of work to wash a load of laundry.

The $100 eco-friendly washer saves money, time and effort while minimizing the environmental impact. Whereas conventional washers use a lot of power and up to 50 gallons of water with each load, the Laundry Pod uses no electricity and less than 5 gallons of water.

The company believes the washer is perfect for dorms, apartments, camping, boating, RVs and any place where space is scarce. Easy to clean and use, the washer features a flexible drain hose, circular wash system, spinning water extraction and a simple draining system. Check out the video below to see how to use the Laundry Pod:
