In the event of a power grid failure and limited fuel to waste generator energy on running a washing machine, I'd like to find an old fashioned double roller clothes/towel wringer. Let's face it, clothes/bedding/towels are still going to have to be washed, and wasting energy and calories doing something as menial as wringing clothes during the washing process will be tiring. Don't believe me? Hand wash a load of bath towels and wring the excess soap out of them before you rinse them. It's a forearm/shoulder workout. When I was a kid my dad had a wringer in the garage that was great for towels when we washed the car. I can't remember the last time I saw one except for at a car wash. Anyone here have experience with any commercially available ones?
