Scrubba Wash Bag

A woman camping near me this past weekend told me about this little item, which looks effective and convenient for washing a few things if off grid for an extended period.

$49.95 on Amazon.

Great idea for washing clothes, especially for boondocking. Thanks for sharing Maggie.

A 5 gallon bucket with a lid and a toilet plunger can be rigged into a washing machine. Drill a small hole in the lid for the handle to go through and use it like a butter churn. Alternately, forget the plunger. just add the clothing water and detergent to the bucket. Leave at least 10 inches of head space. snap the lid down tight. bungee the bucket in place and drive to the next camp site. The vehicle bumping and rocking will provide the agitation.

Alternative

Boy Scout Washing Machine.

Virtually free, works well, and most importantly, parts can be used for other stuff. I would not recommend re-purposing the plunger!

Yep.....but then you have to find someplace to put that big bucket and the plunger.

Not sure about the build quality of this item, but this is a common use for dry bags. I have some Sealline bags that are of a high build quality. I'd recommend you take a look at those. They work great for washing clothes.

We have a couple of dry bags for canoeing. Hadn't thought about washing clothes in them, but it's probably worth a try. Also, we often carry one of those plastic blue barrels in the canoe, which has a really tight seal on the lid. http://www.eurekatentscanada.com/pro...49?s=section_5

This would probably work well with the plan of just throwing clothes into sudsy water in a tightly sealed container in the back of the truck.

On the other hand, there's always the laundry facility at the RV park.....

I think if one were doing prolonged boondocking, the Scrubba Bags might be worth the price.

I can't justify it...but am intrigued by them, their size and collapsibility, and those little, scrubbing nubs inside.

When my parents traveled in a Winnebago back in the day, my Mom had a large plastic bucket with a lid that sealed which she used to wash clothes while they drove....water, a bit of detergent, and the movement of the rig washed the clothing.

Use a rafting dry bag, and add two of those spiked tough rubber dog balls from petsmart.
