Mrs is thinking about a manual clothes washer to take abroad with us,I asked why as we never did before.
Why she said ,I thought here it comes you do but it's just a though I was told
Just the manual type not powere up one
Any tips or advice
Thanks in Advance
In summer Mrs D just hand washes in the van sink. We have a drier that hangs on the van window with about 10 slats on it. She does it maybe once, twice a week. Its just shorts and T shirts and stuff though and in the summer sun its dry in an hour or two. Bedding is a bit more challenging and ill set up a line to dry sheets etc. Winter is an entirely different ball game of course but for us we are generally not away more than a month so it just stacks up until we get home.
GO TO THE LAUNDRETTE where you can sit outside and drink beer in the sunshine......
these are good, good exercise too ! used to get my oily jeans clean after a hard day mechanicing VINTAGE EASY WASH NON POWERED PRESSURE WASHER-PRESAWASH | eBay. look at the american 'easy go washer' for reviews
If on an aire we use the local town Laverie Automatique if available or some of the larger supermarkets also have them and they are also very good.
Once the washing is in we would normally get fuel then park up again and whilst waiting for the cycle to finish one of us nips in to buys provisions.
If on a ACSI or Municiple campsite we would use their laundry facilities but have often found they`ve been well used and abused so that is our last resort.

wash your clothes in a mountain stream whilst still wearing them,
We have always used a couple of buckets on a table Mrs G washes and I wring out.
But as we get older and sometimes now use an aire with facilities, we do also use washing machines
We have been known to even iron, using power from the geny, obviously we were well away from other vans. But that was a one off and no more!
I did think of sending Mrs G down to the stream where she could find some suitable sized rocks but it would be hard on me having to supervise, while sitting drinking a beer
Enjoying the Pot of Sunshine
Graham+Kath = Grath
They Come back well washed and ironed at minimal cost !
This is what to look for their at a lot of super markets now approx cost 4€ for 8 kg wash + 2 € 20 mins drying & 8 € for 18 kg
