A Washing Machine for Campers

... a 5 gallon bucket and a plunger. DW saw the tip on some program but doesn't remember where.

I read where someone just put clothes and soap in the bucket with a lid and let it slosh around between CG's.

Don't know about the rinse or spin cycle.

... sounds like that would work, too. A rinse in the same bucket will be good enough for me.

Crabman has the post below yours. I hope he's using a different bucket and plunger for each function.

Edit: I didn't notice until after sending this was post 500 for me. I hope some of them have made sense. I sure have enjoyed the comments and useful information I have received from the members of this forum. Thanks everybody.

In "Travels With Charlie" Steinbeck used a 5 gal bucket with a lid for his laundry. The idea has been around for a while.

I have a copy of that great book right here next to me. Maybe that is where I recall hearing about it.

Maybe that is why they created the 'traffic circles/round-abouts'. The spin cycle is now covered.

That is a great story isn't it.

What kind of person would not get excited about camping after reading this book?
