Re: Non Electric Clothes washers

Non-electric clothes washer? No Problem. I did a Google search and found a lot of examples.

Less is more.

But I bring a plunger. It makes a nice hat.

Re: Non Electric Clothes washers

Before crossing the Pacific, we bought two five gallon collapsing buckets used for horses from Outfitters Supply, Columbia Falls, MT. Unfortunately, it appears they don't sell the larger 5 gallon size anymore, but if you can find something similar, these are a great space-saving item for a cruising boat (we use them for lots of tasks). In a quick Google check, I found this site selling the 6 gallon size: https://bucksbags.com/collapsible-water-bucket.html

For laundry: soak clothes overnight with small amount of detergent, next morning do the grape-stomping routine for a bit, drain, rinse, wring out and hang. Easy!

True but you will need an operator.
