Have you ever been out camping or overlanding and needed to wash your clothes? During hikes and long drives, our clothing can get sweaty or dirty quite easily. Well, we might be able to show you a solution: welcome to our Scrubba Wash Bag Review.
How Scrubba Bags/Packs work
The Scrubba Wash Bag and Scrubba W Pack and Allurette washers all feature internal washboards that allow a machine quality wash in minutes. Using them is as simple as:
Add clothes, water and cleaning liquid; close and deflate the bag; then rub from the outside for up to 3 minutes then just rinse and hang to dry.
Compared to traditional washboards, the ones in Scrubba and Allurette products are ultra thin and flexible and they are enclosed in the bag or pack. As the rubbing is done from the outside of the bag, there is minimal mess and your hands remain drier.
The Scrubba Bag, Pack and Allurette washer also double as dry sacs to keep gear dry between washes.
Perfect for minimalist lifestyle. Clothes are cleaned very very well. I wrap in a towel to get moisture out and hang. Simple
Good inexpensive investment for some living in an apartment and no washer or dryer available.
After watching several people give demonstrations on utube, I ordered one and tried it out as soon as I got it. This is going to be so handy for traveling and will allow us to pack lighter. At home I threw the wet items in my washing machine and spun the water out, I won’t have that option traveling but the bag seems to get a good clean rinse, better than hand washing. I also got one for a friend.
I spent six weeks traveling in Europe and left home with a 9kg pack, only made possible because I knew I could wash anywhere! I saved heaps of money and time and with the aid of a micro towel could vary how much water I squeezed out, hence no ironing. Also used the bag to pack dirty clothes. Every traveller needs one!
I had a large Scrubba bag that I bought when they first came out. My daughter (a road warrior) and I went on a trip together and she saw my bag and wanted it. She has been borrowing mine for months. So, I bought her a mini. She immediately turned around with a desire for the big one, so I bought her that too. She will get it for Christmas. Here's what we do with our bags. Outbound, I put my wine into a bubble bag and then put that into the Scrubba bag, I can guarantee that there will be no wine spillage if the bottle breaks. If I want to go for a swim the morning I depart for home, I can pop my wet swimsuit into the Scrubba bag and not worry about chlorine stains on my dry clothes. If I have muddy shoes, I pop them into the Scrubba bag and my luggage is mud-free! If I have stinky laundry that threatens to set off chemical agent alarms, no problem, my clothes stay sweet-smelling! So many uses for the Scrubba bag besides for laundry!
