this absolutely works, not just for clothes but for salad too (less vigorous spinning though). I like hearing "Won't get fooled again" whenever I dry clothes this way.

The bottom pail has ½ inch holes drilled into its’ bottom, spaced at about 2 inches apart, and again about 3 inches up the sides. I put a pillow case in the bottom of this pail filled with pea gravel to about 2 inches deep. Clothes are placed within this pail, on top of the folded over pillow case containing the pea gravel. The second bucket, filled to the brim with pea gravel is then placed into the first bucket, on top of the clothes, pressing out a significant amount of water wich drains through the holes. I let it stand 5-10 minutes. Then everything gets hung. It is ‘dry’ enough that dripping takes about 10 minutes to commence.

Sure, an easy solution would be to purchase an old style wringer off Amazon. They are about 150 dollars, and I know that they will work great.
I would like to hear what you all think.
