Hand crank laundry wringers are available at Amazon and Lehman?s. These devices use two rollers to squeeze excess water from laundry to reduce drips and speed drying time. Some units are able to remove more water from laundry than a machine using a spin cycle.
Hand wringers feature an adjustment knob that allows the user to reduce the tension when wringing heavier items such as towels or blankets and tighten it for thinner items such as chamois. Because of size limitations, it is sometimes necessary to fold wider items such as sheets to fit through the unit. The devices are useful in swimming pool and gym locker rooms.
