Doing Dishes the Non-Electric Way

EcoWash is your friendly dishwasher/dinner-set holder that you can take along on picnics and camping trips. Combining the components of a bucket of water, cleaning brush, suds and drying, this compact portable machine is ideal for the outdoors. The crank handle works the inner machinery to rotate the dish rack for cleaning purposes. Water is sourced through a tap or a pipe and is expelled with the grime through a special release slot.

The optional rinse cycle works on the same principles but the drying system works using centrifugal force; a system similar to the function of a vegetable dryer. The washer clips on a set of four dinner plates and cutlery.

Although this design is intended for the outdoors, I think it will work just as well indoors, especial for those who want to combine a little bit of muscles workout to their daily routine.
