Yes. You’ve read it right, you can get some exercise and wash your clothes at the same time!
This is made possible by amazing “multi-tasking” bicycles invented by smart people from different parts of the world.
In United Kingdom, Alex Gadsen invented a pedal-powered washing machine which he called the Cyclean. This machine, conceived out of frustration with waste, is built using recycled parts of a washing machine, a wheelbarrow, and a stationary bicycle.
In the Philippines, industrial designer Mitch Shivers invented another eco-friendly washing machine called the Washercise. It was designed to help many Filipino housewives who spend a lot of time and effort washing clothes with their hands. This invention lets the owner do the laundry while enjoying a bike ride, running an errand, or going to the market. The unit integrates a 30-gallon metal drum with built-in washing machine system and driven by an ordinary bicycle.
These bike-powered washing machines not only help you save electric energy, which consequently helps the environment and saves you some money, but also helps you simplify and enjoy your chores and helps you stay in good shape at the same time!
Lord Charles Bereford was right when he said, “Whoever invented the bicycle deserves the thanks of humanity.”
