Well folks since I've got bad knees building one of JW's Bike-O-Warshers is out and I've been thinking about this idea for a good while. I call it the Wind-O-Warsher because the wind should do most of the work. Of course there are probably hundreds of ways a person could use the wind to wash clothes, but this is just one of mine. It should work like this. A large round plastic tote of some sort mounted on top of an automotive coil spring with an arm going up with sails on it so that no matter which way the wind is blowing it should rock the tote back and forth and while doing that agitating the clothes.
It would all depend on the size and strength of the coil spring, the amount of water in the tote, the sail size and the speed of wind gusts as to how much agitation occurred.
What Ya think?
