Some time ago, I hooked on to a suggestion from SBE (a fellow travelfisher) about using a dry bag as a washing machine while travelling. I used my for 6 months until the bag started to delaminate - but it's a great idea. You fill it with warm water, add a bit of soap, toss in the clothes, then shake it around for a few minutes. It's much better than washing in the sink while using your undies to plug up the sink hole.
Well, I see (courtesy of TooManyAdapters) that an Australian has come with a nifty prototype variation of this: the Scrubba bag. Basically, it a dry bag but with a ribbed panel inside that helps to scrub your clothes. Brilliant!
No, I'm not being paid to sponsor this.. just thought it was a neat idea worth sharing :-)
I can finally get rid of my laundry paddle. :-)
For those who are too young to know what a laundry paddle is:
Thanks for sharing Lizzy, I'll definitely consider getting one of these for my next long journey, they'd come in especially handy on those occasions when the laundry woman refuses to wash your undies, although I only encountered this about two times in nine months.
Great for camping too!
