The Scrubba wash bag, which is the world's first pocket-sized washing machine for travelers and campers, was recently featured by Lonely Planet. The following is an excerpt from the feature:
"Sometimes on your travels you just want to quickly wash a few pairs of underwear and some t-shirts without going to the laundromat. The Scrubba Wash Bag (thescrubba.com) makes hand washing easier, with its built-in plastic washboard bumps. You put in some clothes with water and shampoo, agitate the bag and, in a few minutes, you have clean clothes without getting your hands wet. It can fit a few pairs of underwear and socks and some t-shirts in one wash, and folds to the size of a soft-drink can for easy transport."
