How much laundry can I wash in one load?

The optimal washing load for Dolfi is 0.5-1.5kg (1-3pounds). Better results are achieved with small washing loads.

Can Dolfi replace my automatic washing machine?

No. Dolfi is not a full cycle washing machine, it does only the washing part. It will also not be effective for big loads of laundry and for voluminous pieces such as bed linen, towels, jeans etc. Dolfi will rather complement your washing machine to deal with small volumes of delicate items that require a sensitive wash and can be ruined in the machine.

What's about rinsing and drying?

Dolfi only washes the clothes. Rinsing and drying must be done manually. A careful approach to drying also prolongs the life of your delicates.

Can I use it with 110V or is it 220V only?

Dolfi was designed for travelers and works on 100-240V. We also have a set of specially designed, interchangeable power plugs that connect directly into our power adapter, so you can use Dolfi anywhere in the world.

How much water should I use per washing load?

We recommended to use about 5 to 10 liters of water for one washing load - the clothes should float freely in the water.

What temperature should the water be?

The washing water should be lukewarm water, not exceeding 40 degrees (104F). It should feel warm, but not overly hot to your hand.

Do I need detergent?

Yes, you do. Over the last decades there were several attempts to develop ultrasonic washers which work without the detergent, but with Dolfi we didn't take this path. It might be the next challenge for our engineers.

What type of detergent should I use?

You can use any type of washing detergent available on the market. It doesn't matter if it's a liquid or powder. The better the quality of detergent, the better the results of washing.
