And yet another, complete with a brief lesson in the science of clothes washing.

Disposable clothing are still made. Firefighters, the kind that fight forest fires quite often use disposable sleeping bags...they're made of Tyvek. And I have a good friend that's a flight attendant and she purchases disposable underwear at Walgreens...doesn't like packing THAT type of dirty laundry in her suitcase because of security going through suitcases at airports. I've seen the coveralls and even windbreaker-type coats out of paper/Tyvek.

But I think for the longterm, disposable would be very, very expensive. Soap and water are cheap

The one thing I keep forgetting to check into are chamois-type bathing towels. A couple of years ago I met a couple (in the laundrymat) who were full-timing and they were using them. Full-timers are always looking for methods to cut down on costs and these towels worked for them. Each had one in different colors than the other so they didn't mix them up.

Campmor has several different sizes and styles of lightweight towels, which all work very well.

If you use one of these newfangled devices to do laundry you miss out on the true adventure of going to the local laundrymat where you will most likely meet all kinds of interesting folks.

yeah right And you also get the pleasure of spending money....the couple of times I've been to a laundrymat...my clothes came out dirtier than they went in. I think I used a washer right after someone did their dogs bedding. And try getting the bubblegum out of a shirt after it's been dried "in"...thanks to some child pitching it into the dryer instead of a garbage can

I see you have seen the laundry here in town fo Hooterville.

Ours isn't actually that bad. They keep it clean. I still have a half sized washer at home that I do my clothes in and hang dry, but the big stuff has to go there.

I dread it...

Ever since we bought our Maytag Neptune Laundry machines, our house has become the local laundrymat for all our friends.

Try a 5 gal bucket with lid. Fill 1/3 full of water, add a little, and I do mean little laundry soap and a couple pieces of dirty clothes. Pop on the lid. Tuck it in the bouncy corner of your trailer and drive to the next stop. It sloshes while you drive. It is ready to rinse and hang up when you get there.
Total investment: one 5 gallon bucket.
