My method is two hands, Dawn dish soap (the universal surfactant), and my collapsible bucket (or the Dometic sink, or the campground sink if there is one).

It helps to choose clothing wisely - no heavy jeans if possible. Just fast-drying technical clothes - they are worth the extra cash. Lots of layers so that only those layers that get dirty need to be washed at any given time.

My sister has used this for years on her travels and she keeps trying to sell it to me but I'm not having it. I'm with InterBlog and Protagonist. Rinse, repeat, laundromat. But she loves it so thought would share. She has used it on canoe trips and in Venice and everywhere in between and thinks it's the greatest.

I posted already on the pet thread in lifestyle forum, but I wonder what you do about this since this is my homey thread and it pertains to small space living and many have pets. And wonder what you have done. How do you monitor temperature when you leave your pet?

I don't have pets, but my Viper alarm system comes with an interior temperature sensor. As long as I'm in range, I can press a button on the remote and get a temperature readout.

Remembering that sensor prompted me to do a quick search for something that works through a smartphone, and I came up with this…

…which might be just what you need.

Finally found a prefabricated runner that fits the aisle both front and back. It's called Ottomanson Softy Collection Color Solid (Machine-Washable/Non-Slip) Kitchen/Bathroom Mat Rug, 20" x 59" but it's a cheapie so they shorted a bit on the 20 inch making it 19 point something, which actually works better in the rear. Most of the pre-made stuff is wider than 20" so these are hard to find. Rubber-backed polypro, very light (about 1 lb.), very good match to the custom carpet we had installed in the cab. I like something on the floor underfoot when it's 35 degrees outside. About twenty bucks.

The perfect size!

I had found a narrow runner at a WalMart somewhere that I had down in the rear for a year or so, then ordered rugs from Stroud's that have worked well.

http://www.stroudbraidedrugs.com

A bit more expensive than $20, but they are reversible and washable and have worn well.

They come in many patterns and colors, also solids, and can be custom made to any size and shape.

Not only is the warmth nice underfoot when it is cold, but I think rugs just warm the interior up a bit.

We bought runner by the foot from Home Depot. The edges don't need to be seamed. It's too wide, so we'll cut it to width. Low profile so it will allow opening fridge and galley cabinet. The gray color is inconspicuous but this definitely is not a fashion statement! I'll post a photo once we get it installed, but it might not be till fall.

Hmmm...that's an idea I hadn't thought of.

I have had condensation seep under my flooring, creating some stains.

I plan to look into what it would cost to have just what you can see taken up and replaced, but a runner cut to fit which could be removed and shaken out might be another option.

Is the runner washable?

I don't see why not. You could even baste the ends together if you wish. We are out right now on our first trip with this thing. Im pleased. Very non-slip. My only advisory is availability. I got ours from Amazon and the seller only had a few left.

I thought about runner by the foot but it all seemed too wide and I wanted bound edges. I also wanted very light so I could pick it up and shake it, because I don't carry a vacuum.

Bound edges would be nice.

I am probably going to look into replacing the flooring one of these days soon...no mildew apparently present, just some stains that are visually disturbing and not covered by my Stroud rugs.

Maggie,
It's indoor/outdoor carpeting. We'll spot clean for small problems and hose it off in the driveway as needed.

I got an indoor /outdoor rug from Costco and cut it to size. It works well, except it skids. I put some skid proof liners under it on this trip. So far so good. But I still like the ones you got Interblog, but will have to wait till we get home to order it. Hope there will be some left
