This small portable washing machine is about to change your lazy girl life

Excellent news for all apartment dwellers, college students, avid campers and people who generally hate doing big loads of laundry: A tiny washing machine exists. And, yes, it works. As someone who currently has to schlep their entire load of laundry across the street, I am thrilled.

Unlike most (read: all) washers and dryers, Amazon has a small portable washing machine that doesn’t require any traditional type of plumbing — and it’s only $60. Oh, and it’s super cute and comes in so many fun colors.

Amazon shoppers have said that it's "great at preventing laundry pileup" and "actually cleans the clothing." It also fits a surprising amount of clothing for the small size.

The Portable Washing Machine is exactly that: a portable washing machine. As it weighs only 3.6 pounds, this portable washing machine is compact and easy to carry. It also folds into itself, so you can easily store it away when it’s not in use.

All you need to do is fill it up, plug it in, choose your timer mode, close the lid and wait! With a self-contained drainage pipe and bottom drainage hole, it’s easy to drain the dirty water after washing.

It can’t hold an entire load of laundry like a traditional washing machine. However, it has an impressive 11-liter capacity, so it can fit so much more than you would think. While some Amazon users have washed things like jeans and sheets, it’s best for small items like underwear, socks, delicates, tees and other similar everyday items.

Amazon shoppers have said that it’s “great at preventing laundry pileup” and “actually cleans the clothing.” It also fits a surprising amount of clothing for the small size.

“I love my mini washer machine! I bought it for my dorm and I wash most all my clothes in it!” wrote one college-aged Amazon shopper. “Perfect for one person in a cramped space. Would highly recommend for dorms.”

“This portable washing machine is a total game-changer! It’s super lightweight and compact, making it perfect for my small apartment. I love that it folds up to save space,” wrote another Amazon shopper. “Operating it is a breeze with the timer buttons. Plus, the 1-year warranty is a nice bonus. Highly recommend!”
