Perfect concept for us aging "Baby Boomers" retiring to the Philippines. This peddle-action washing machine is an energy-saver -- electric hookup unnecessary -- fun for all the little nephews & nieces and a great chance for me to get some much needed exercise. Many of us now look forward to Wash day, especially the women who no longer have that back-breaking scrubbing to do.
Those in America may eventually find themselves forced to "Go Green" & these contraptions might become mandatory by 2012!!
