Campers and travelers will agree that dirty laundry seriously weighs down your trip. Runs to the laundromat are out of the way and costly, and stain sticks don’t remove the rancid stank from days spent in the wilderness. So what are you supposed to do when you’re in need of something clean?

Scrubba revamped the old washboard technique, designing a lightweight, compact and portable “washing machine.” This portable wash bag was developed with hundreds of internal Scrubba nodules to efficiently clean clothes in just minutes.


To use it, place your clothes in the bag with water and detergent. Simply seal the dry-bag style closure and open the valve to release the trapped air and securely grip the circles on the sides of the bag and massage it. The Scrubba nodules work hard to clean your clothes so you don’t have too. The durable microbial and hydrolysis-resistant polyether TPU even doubles as a dry bag.

The Scrubba portable laundry system wash bag isn’t great for just camping, but for business trips, emergencies, traveling, boating, hiking, other outdoor adventures, small apartments and people who just want to conserve water.

You can find it online for about $54 and a portion of the proceeds even goes towards helping provide drinking water to those in need around the globe.
