Did you hear the one about the married man who figured he did not need a clothes washing machine? His wife was always agitating.

I like the bucket-on-a-tongue idea. That could work. It would work even better on the rear bumper!

Works just as well inside. Especially if you put the container in the bathroom. In the event it spills open your drawers won't be blowing up and down the highway

When back packing we would put the clothes into a heavy duty garbage bag with soap and water and shake it for several minutes then change the water for a rinse. Worked pretty well for the back country.

Camping is the time for quick dry poli ester and nylon products. Most will dry overnight or quickly in the sunlight..

Well, we don't have a head to place it in, is why I used the tongue.

I also like the Purex 3-in-1 product for its simplicity, but one warning - Unless there is an unscented version which I haven't found, they have a fairly strong oder even before you use them. I keep the open package in a freezer bag & the compartment they are in still smells strong enough to water my eyes...

I bought a tiny pump bottle of Method laundry detergent at a local store. About the size of a shampoo bottle, but promised 20 plus loads. And, it delivered. I stored it in the laundry bag with no issues.
I, like Donna and many others, suffer from contact allergies. I normally use only Arm & Hammer at home. I tried the Purex, but it made me itch. And sneeze.
The Method detergent gave me no issues, happily, though I tested with one load at home before deciding to carry it for the long haul.
I hope the Method detergent is not discontinued. It is no longer on the shelf at the corner supermarket.

This is your lucky day SherryNPaul.
Only your local supermarket is out.
I never heard of Method until your
post for which I thank you. Here's some:

Many, many years ago, when I was young and single and footloose, a friend and I went tent camping for an entire summer. We had a tiny car, a tiny tent, some basic pots etc, and a tiny bag of clothing each. Once in a while we did laundry in the dish pan and hung things around the campsite to dry. The slowest things to dry were our cotton panties - and these we sometimes finished off by hanging them on the arial for the radio.
