Laundry simplfied............ Kind of.......LOL

It's not often that a everyday product comes along that fit's the needs of a rv'er, I am not a product hawker, but the theory behind this product makes them so handy for rv'ers I thought I would pass it along. Our last camp out, 2 weeks. Knowing I would have laundry within a couple of days and not having the space in the Casita nor the patience to deal with it in a such a small space, I had made up a bag of detergent, softner, stain remover ect to do laundry in the campground facility's. Well in my haste to get packed and on the road, I left the bag behind. No biggie, I would pick up some at the store on my way to our first destination.

My dilemma, buying small enough containers of the products I needed so that I could store them from being underfoot the whole trip. Then I had a light bulb moment, What about those new detergent towels I have seen advertised? hmmmmmm, what were they called?


Well I found them, they are Purex Complete 3 in 1. Detergent, stain remover and softner all in one. I have to tell you, they are wonderful for having on board an rv. I remember when we had our Class A, I always carried the products I used but the hassle of dragging the stuff to the laundry and back was a pain. But now having the Casita and the storage issues are added to the issue. I am a happy camper to have found these useful and handy! Easy to take, store, and shuffle back and forth to the laundry facility. And in my opinion gentle enough on our camping clothes that I will continue to carry them in the Casita.

I am sure as the product gains popularity the other brands will start producing it as well. Still don't know if I would use it at home, but on the road. Oh yea!

Yet another bonus Lizbeth! For me it was how compacted they store away as well as how easy to drag to the laundry facility's.

I used them in the military, when I deployed to places with laundry facilities and have used them in my current job with the Red Cross. They certainly cut down on weight and room in your deployment kit.

Esteemed colleagues,

As I read over the above messages it strikes me that these would make a perfect testimonial. The military tie-in is a cincher. Robin, if you are so disposed, I respectfully suggest you send these messages to the appropriate office (PR and/or Marketing) at the manufacturer and indicate your willngness to participate in any promotion-- for a fee of course, or a lifetime supply of the product for all those involved. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Best regards, Rich Morrison

Robin ,

I'd be willing to make the initial contact on behalf of the Fiberglass RV.com membership, if you wish.

Let's wait and see

Let's give it a week or so and see what else comes in and then all those with an interest can decide.

Hey guys,
Thought I'd put my two cents in here. Though I have not taken them on a trip with me yet, as an apartment dweller I can say that I LOVE them for when I have to trek down to the communal laundry room! As the previous comments have voiced, small, light, and no mess. Before this I NEVER used a Purex product before, but I HIGHLY recommend these for college students, military, RVers, just about anybody!

I heard that you could set up a 5 gal pail on the tongue. Put your wash, detergent, and water inside, seal and by the time you get to your next stop, your clothes are washed!

Thank you for this....it's a subject that has come up on occassion betwixt me and the Handyman...how to do laundry on the road. I had wondered about those sheets...may have to try them en casa just to see how well they will suit my sensitive skin.

Luv the bucket trick. I remember a book of looooong ago called "Roughing It Easy" with ideas such as that for the long distance commute back and forth to work. Even spoke about wrapping dinner in foil, placing it on the manifold et voila' dinner in the driveway.

Back on topic...I can see how much easier this laundry product would be to carry, store and have minimal to toss out when done.

I'd volunteer for practical duty, too. I hate having to buy something to try it out.

I'd like to see them come out with a 2-in-1. My skin can't handle fabric softener... makes me itch. Sigh.
