Scrubba Traveling Washing Machine

We thought the Scrubba Wash Bag was a nifty innovation, especially for going on extended trips into the back country and not wanting to lug around a lot of unneeded weight. Some people can go days with out washing their clothes, but this gives them less of an excuse. The bag on its own ways in at 5 ounces and about the size of a coke can when rolled up to easily tuck away into a pack or pouch.

The Scrubba has a built in patent pending agitator that is much simpler to use and more forgiving than beating your clothes on a rock. The bag system allows for quick clean time and appears extremely easy to use with just some water, a soap based product, and limited elbow grease. The bag is limited in size and lacks the ability to withstand extreme heat, but this could be a great way to clean up some socks, underwear, and a t-shirt without any laundry facilities close at hand.

There certainly are some people that may pick this up to forego ever using a washing machine, but they probably go a week or so without changing their clothes anyway. Cross country bike rides and ventures into the wilderness can certainly implicate you into some crunchiness. You know who you are. The video below gives a good demonstration for use.

The company is based out of Australia, but ships international with relatively low rates to the U.S. Initial orders are due to ship tomorrow. Bulk discounts for multiple bags are available along with and travel packages that include a dry line, carry pouch, and towel. View full details and ordering at: TheScrubba.com
