. It works well. It squeezes out the soapy water so that we don't have to rinse as much. We use clamps from a propane
BBQ to attach it to the bars near the helm
Sometimes we add a little vinegar to the rinse water, it seems to help get the soap out with less water.
We also do a one step (no rinse) wash with ammonia, and no soap, for certain laundry
. Like the bed
. They come out feeling clean, but it doesn't do anything for dirt.
Another part of our strategy is to have the right clothes. Some synthetics seem to repel dirt, and are easy to clean with little water. Cotton, especially thick cotton, takes more scrubbing to get clean and then a lot more water to rinse out.
