Two days of dirty laundry is enough to spoil any vacation or camping trip. If you’re a frequent traveler, you’re going to agree to that statement. So what do you generally do in order to stay away from such a mess? Pack too many clothes and travel with an overweight backpack or pay extra dollars to get your laundry done when you’re outdoors. I know there isn’t much of a choice other than doing these things but it’s time to take back that kind of thinking and switch to a modern take on the old-fashioned washboard. No, I am not asking you to carry a bulky washboard with your already “super heavyluggage. Instead, what I have in mind is a Scrubba Wash Bag. Watch the following video and even you’ll agree when I say that this is one outstanding approach to make your washing machines pocket-sized and portable.

Modern Take on the Old Fashioned Washboard

As I said earlier, Scrubba has a modern take on the old-fashioned washboard. It is made of microbial and hydrolysis resistant polyether TPU and weighs 5 oz. only. This bag can serve not only as a portable washing machine but also as a dry bag to keep your valuables safe and protected while you’re traveling. The bag has grip circles which will prevent sliding on surfaces whenever you’ll be washing your clothes in it.
