From Portable Clothes Washers to Wall-Mounted Laundry Machines

This cluster of wee washers proves that it doesn't take a giant laundry machine to wash your clothes, dishes or shoes properly. From pint-sized portable clothes washers to wall-mounted laundry machines that don't take a single square foot of floor space, these options are perfect for anyone who travels a lot or lives in a small space.

My favorites among these wee washers are the designs that clean clothes passively, whether it's an ottoman that agitates clothes when you sit on it or a ball that can be used in developing countries to bring the appliance close to water in a fun way.
