Hand crank washing machine

Question  Hand crank washing machine
Has anyone had experience with those hand powered washing machine. The ones where you turn a handle on a barrel to wash clothes.

I was looking at getting one.

RE: Hand crank washing machine
I have known several people that trued different versions of the sort. None reported that they got any better results than if they used a 5gal plastic bucket with a plunger handle sticking through a hole in the lid or a simple scrub board.

It is all just some fancy version of beating the clothes on a flat rock.

You soap the clothes up, agitate the dirt out, rinse and wring them out then hang to dry.

In a post-event world I would want to boil the duds during the first scrub to kill lice and vermin.

would it be worth it with products on the market like biotex, ie leave to soak.
