Washing Clothes While Camping – Scrubba Wash Bag

I was out camping a couple of months ago and one of my kids spilled juice on themselves. It happens… often. Once I got closer to clean up the mess I wondered if there was a camping washing machine on the market. There are so many household items designed for the camper lifestyle that I wouldn’t have been amazed if there were a few ideas sold online. After a paper towel wipe up and a fresh outfit on the little one, I sat down with Google and searched for a washing machine that could go with any type of camper. I looked for Washing Clothes While Camping – Scrubba Wash Bag came up and my hope for an easier way to wash on the go was right in front of me. It was one of those “If I had only thought of it sooner” moments.

I am happy to have a wash bag like the Scrubba on hand when we are at a campsite. I have a weird thing about not using public laundry at the campgrounds. I can’t put my finger on it, but most of the time I fill a laundry basket or two to bring home after camping. It’s a ton of work washing 7 people’s camping clothes after a long weekend. It is also not a ton of fun! However, now I can keep up with the dirt and campfire smells during our trips.

In all reality I would recommend the Scrubba Wash Bag for your next outdoor stay. Especially if you are heading up to the BWCA because there is no washing machines in the woods! It folds up small enough to pack for Backcountry camping and doesn’t take up much space, either. The price is about $55.00 which I think is a bit high for a wash bag, however I believe it is a very handy tool and I love the design. You can tell it is made with great quality when you handle the Scrubba Wash Bag. The two things that set the Scrubba Wash Bag above any other wash bag is the flexible fabric and the wash board inside the bag.

You can purchase a Scrubba from Amazon for $49
