About Us

A Note From Our CEO:

The company was born as a pure coincidence.

I was living in a small apartment without a washer and dryer and wanted to avoid long drives to the laundromat. Like you, I found there were no good options for washing laundry in apartments.

Just out of curiosity, I spent several days and nights looking non-stop for a mini non-electric washing machine that was somewhere on the Internet. I have no idea why, it was just incredibly interesting. Eventually it turned out the inventor was in South Africa.  After trying one out for myself and finding it extremely useful, The Laundry Alternative was launched in 1998.

There are 2 key areas that set us apart: 1. We only carry laundry products. 2. We are highly selective about the products we carry. The products must be durable and effective, or they don’t make the cut. Many customers tell us they have searched for countless hours on the Internet- and ended up more confused than when they started- before finding us. Sit back, relax and let us solve all your laundry problems for you.

We have many years of experience in the laundry industry, including many years at famous brands such as Electrolux. All of our products all carry an extremely long 3-year comprehensive warranty, we stand behind our products. 

It takes a lot of time and effort to get the small details right, versus settling for selling mediocre products, but is well worth it. We do all sorts of rigorous product testing before launching any new models. We simulate all sorts of scenarios, from overloading, to using cheap detergent, hard water, too much bleach etc. We go the extra mile, so you don't have to. 

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us because we love hearing from you: You can reach us by leave a message, email and phone. Our entire team is US based. We offer high level support from senior technicians and can answer any laundry related question you could possible ask. We listen very carefully to all of your feedback and spend a great deal of time and money to incorporate your suggestions into improving our product lines.
