Portable washing machine is used when situations do not allow a full-sized machine. It helps to relieve yourself from doing hand wash. But it is not for washing bulky items though.
They are small enough that you can store them in the storage area and only move them to a kitchen or yard where you connect them to a water faucet and start washing your clothes in it.
Though typically powered by electricity there are human-manually-powered too. You’ll be surprised you can find one.
Its small, lightweight design is most suited for apartments, dorms, RVs, motor homes, camping, etc.
If you had followed my article on the washing machine here you would understand that washing machines either use agitators or pulsators to make them more efficient in washing your laundry.
Either one can make a difference in how clothes are washed. But most washing machine nowadays uses the pulsator type.
For your convenience, some particular portable washing machines are 2-in-1 types. That means it has the function of a laundry and dryer (dehydration) and you don’t need to buy another machine to dehydrate after each wash. Though you still need to hang out your clothes in order to dry completely.

Who wouldn’t want a full-size washer or dryer? Firstly, you have a family and that certainly requires a lot of washing or secondly your nearest laundromat is inconveniently far away.
If you are renting an apartment or living in a dormitory, probably the landlord will not allow you to install a full-size washing machine which involves drilling holes and pipes but you may use a portable one. In that case, the landlord should impose strict adherence to safety measures you have to follow like washing can only be done in the bathroom. This is to ensure no flooding can occur.
Just be cautious that leaving your washing machine, while still operating, may result in overflowing if the tap is on all the time. And if the drainage hose is not tied down to the sink or drain, it may jettison itself, hence starting a flood.
To properly use a portable washing machine it is very important that the inlet hose be securely attached to the water faucet and your drainage faucet allows wastewater to drain out properly without spilling.
Can a good compact portable washing machine really do the job? You bet it can. Today’s technology can bring you many new innovations with ease and functionality of use. Due to circumstances, a full-size washing machine might not be feasible.
To relieve you from hand washing your clothes, a portable washing machine is a sustainable and convenient solution.
