Wash Clothes During An Emergency

Who hasn’t found themselves with a clothes washing emergency? I know I have!

What I love about this idea is that for someone in our particular living situation who doesn’t have a built-in washing machine and dryer, it’s a perfect idea even for everyday washing!

I know I’ve spent my share of time either bent over the bathtub, kitchen sink or “walking clothes” in the tub which can actually be very dangerous. I’ve fallen more than once walking clothes because of the slippery laundry detergent.

Also, have you ever tried getting the soap out by hand? I’m not saying it’s impossible, but it is quite difficult and time-consuming!

I plan on talking to Paul about making this set-up for us as our everyday washer for when CB and Crew are doing their own laundry and the washer isn’t available.

Blessings on your journey,

    I’ve actually been doing my laundry by hand this way for months now, and I’m not looking back! I started because, being in Southern California, I wanted to be able to reclaim my laundering water, and the only way to do that was to stop using the machine.

    I use what’s called a breathing hand washer with two nesting plastic tubs; one I’ve drilled holes into so that, like a pasta strainer, you can just pull the clothes out of the water. You can also then re-nest them so that the one without holes is on top, sandwiching the clothes between them, and stand on the whole thing to squeeze out excess water.

    I wish I could take credit for that idea, but I saw it on youtube, hehe.
