When you can't get to a laundromat, I second Auspicious' method of doing laundry in a 5 gallon bucket (we use our "look" bucket), with some fresh water and ammonia. No rinsing necessary, and it gets us through to the next laundromat. I haven't had great experience in having someone else do the laundry for us. Pieces from other orders get mixed in with yours and vice versa (sometimes after you've left for another island), things aren't done when they should be and you end up dinghying home to your boat
in the dark...the list goes on. I'm the captain
of my own laundry, thank you.
The past two cruises I have used the Purex 3-in-1 sheets
- which are great for laundromat use. I wish they'd market a product like this with bleach as well.
Wood clothes pins hold better and last longer than plastic. Except for the large plastic tropical birds and flamingoes from Bed
Bath & Beyond. I have four of these which have super grip and even fit over stainless rails.
