The Scrubba Wash Bag
The Scrubba™ Wash Bag is a must have for camping. We went camping as kids and again a few times with my husband. This bag saves you from having to run to a laundry mat, if you can find one close by. Or pack in on a vacation to clean just a few items to get you through the week.
Weighing less than 5 oz., the Scrubba™ Wash Bag is the lightest and most compact “washing machine” in the world. It’s a packing essential for all travelers and campers who want to: pack lighter and cleaner, wash clothes anywhere, save money, and enjoy travel. Check out the video below that explains how it works and that it only takes about 5 minutes to complete.
With the Scrubba you can wash clothes wherever and whenever you want for free with this ultra-portable washing machine. The clothes will be equal to a machine quality wash.
The Scrubba™ Wash Bag is the washing machine that gives back clean water. A portion of the proceeds goes towards providing clean drinking water in areas of the world with those in need. Supported projects include:
- $15,000 contributed to provide clean water to a school in Bangladesh
- $1000 donated by the Scrubba™ Wash Bag to the World Vision Emergency and Preparedness Fund
- Contribution to and ongoing involvement with Charity: Water
- $1000 contribution to Rift Valley Reservoir Project (Kenya) with the help from our IndieGoGo campaign supporters
It is made of microbial and hydrolysis resistant polyether TPU. The bag is 21.3 x 12.6 inches when laid flat, 6.3 x 2.4 x 2.4 inches (when rolled for storage).
A modern take on the old-fashioned washboard: hundreds of internal Scrubba™ nodules that efficiently clean your clothes in minutes. Lightest washing ‘machine’ in the world at only 5 oz. The transparent ‘window’ helps you see washing and filling levels. Also once you put the water in and close the top it has a valve to release air so you can wash your clothing extra good.
I will be taking this on my next vacation because it folds down to pocket-size and is small enough to take anywhere. One of our vacations my husband threw the Nyquil in my suitcase. Then the airline security needed to talk to me while we were waiting to board, oh yeah red all over my clothing and washed out what I could in the sink. We were visiting Jamaica and you are not going to find a laundry mat without having some issues. Not fun, with the Scrubba I will never go through that again!
The shiny part on Scrubba is the grip circles that prevent sliding on surfaces when washing. This is a tough bag and ready for almost anything. It really works this easily and it is made to last. I know this will be part of my suitcase for any trip from now on.
I like how they have the picture instructions printed right on the outside of the bag, so I do not have to worry about losing the cardboard it came in. This also doubles as a dry-bag for canoeing or similar.
The Scrubba is great for business trips, outdoor adventures, backpacking adventures, boats, emergency prep, or even for those without a laundry machine at home wanting to wash a few articles or delicates.
The goal of eartheasy.com was simple: to encourage, inspire and inform people about the benefits of a simpler, less material lifestyle, and the importance of protecting our natural environment as the source of our well-being. The owner wanted to see a website where a wide range of information about sustainable living could be found in one location, and enough content for each topic so you didn’t need to click from link to link trying to piece together information.
Most of the pages on Eartheasy come from first-hand experience. The gardening pages, composting, home-efficiency pages, food preservation, non-toxic home care, alternate energy, natural pest control, and family play activities come from 30 years of past living experience. Others come from many hours in the library, on the web, interviewing experts in various fields, and from many site visitors who’ve contributed a wealth of information. The drawings on the site are his own, and many of the pictures come from the owner’s family album.
