Re: The Art of Washing Clothes Aboard...

We have a Splendide and find it very useful. The unvented model does not dry cotton well, but does fine with synthetics. However, it needs 110v and the drying mode actually uses water in the unvented model. With no hot air vent, it heats the drum, creates condensation by cooling the outside and rinsing it away.

It's best to just wash and spin, which at worst comes out better than hand wringing. We run the washer about once per week when cruising, but would need to do so much more if living aboard full time. We do so, when running the generator anyway. Washing sans drying takes 30 to 45 mins, no fuss, no muss.
