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.

We are highly selective about the products we carry. They must be durable and effective. There's no need to spend countless hours doing Internet research: 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. All of our products all carry an extremely long 3-year comprehensive warranty. 

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 for you. 

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 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.
