I'm still getting the hang of it. So far it has done the job. It saves me $ and not having to schlep loads to laundromat! I'm in an RV, so I can wash a few things here and there and hang them up (they're very slightly damp) and a couple hours they're completely dry. I fill it and drain it in my shower amove it out of the way when I'm done. Saves on detergent. Using only 2 tblsp.
