There are now small compact portable washers and dryers that can process five-pound loads and use a fraction of the energy required of full-sized models. The dryer models use a high-rate spin of 3,200 rpm and can cut drying time by three minutes. Some models are foot and hand-powered which saves 100 percent on electricity bills. They are highly portable, allowing them to be taken on vacation and used as often as needed.
