The Scrubba wash bag will be a must-have item for travelers and campers, enabling them to travel clean, free and light.  The Scrubba wash bag weighs around 180g (6 oz) and is pocket-sized.   
 

 

Is it more than just a bag?

I have received a few comments that "surely any bag can be used to wash your clothes with a bit of swishing".  While this may be true (given enough time), all other bags lack the Scrubba wash bag's flexible washboard.  Washboards have been around since the 1800s, and they work. What's more, they speed up how quickly and effectively you can wash your clothes.  As shown from the following link, you really only need rub an item of clothes across a traditional washboard 4-8 times (http://www.pioneerliving.net/washboard.htm).  This is the same with the Scrubba wash bag, 20-40 seconds rubbing is all it takes and, unlike a traditional washboard, you can easily slip it into your backpack.

 

Background and how to use the Scrubba wash bag

As an avid traveler, I spent a total of 8.5 months backpacking around the world with an early prototype of the Scrubba wash bag without spending a cent on laundry. Furthermore, as the Scrubba wash bag allowed me to do my laundry anywhere water was available, I was able to travel with only a few changes of clothing in a carry-on sized bag.  The Scrubba wash bag allowed me to travel clean, light and free.

The Scrubba wash bag results from the fusion of old and new technology, bringing the washboard into the 21st century.  Washboards have been around for centuries and they work!  However, washboards are cumbersome and still require a tub or large bucket to use effectively.  The Scrubba wash bag is the perfect solution for washing clothing while travelling or camping as the Scrubba wash bag includes a highly flexible washboard in a flexible waterproof housing.

The key to the Scrubba wash bag is the flexible internal washboard that provides a machine quality wash in just minutes, making it perfect for travel and camping.
 
 
Six easy steps are all it takes to wash your clothes in the Scrubba wash bag:
Fill, Roll & Clip, Deflate, Rub, Rinse and Dry.
 

To wash clothing, users simply need to:

  • add 2-4 litres of water, several items of clothing, a few drops of washing liquid (body wash or shampoo also works well);

Scrubba wash bag step 1

  • seal the Scrubba wash bag;                                                       

Scrubba wash bag step 2

  • expel air from the Scrubba wash bag through the valve;


   Scrubba wash bag step 3

 

  • place the Scrubba wash bag on a table or the floor;

 

  • rub the clothes against the flexible washboard from the outside of the Scrubba wash bag for 30 seconds to 3 minutes;


  Scrubba wash bag step 4

 

  • Empty the Scrubba wash bag

 

  • Rinse the clothing;

Scrubba wash bag step 5

  • Hang the clothing to dry.

Scrubba wash bag step 6

Your clothes can be cleaned in just a few minutes. 
 
The Scrubba™ wash bag is the easiest and most effective way to hand wash clothes when traveling, camping, trekking, hiking, on a cruise, on a business trip or even at home.
 
For a quick history and demonstration of the Scrubba wash bag, check out the video below from American Outdoors TV.
 
 
 
 
 
- Care and Maintenance
Your Scrubba wash bag will last much longer if you look after it.
Following the instructions below will maximise the life-span of your Scrubba wash bag.
 
- Rinse and turn the Scrubba wash bag inside-out to dry after each use:
While the Scrubba wash bag uses microbial and hydrolysis resistant polyether TPU, air drying the inside of the bag will help it last longer and make it more hygienic. 
 
- Avoid exposure to heat or sunlight:
Exposure to temperatures over 50°C (122°F) or sunlight can damage the inner and outer coatings of the Scrubba wash bag.  Where possible dry the bag in the shade (it doesn't take long).
 
- Take care when washing clothes with zips, buckles or other hard features:
Wrapping the clothes to cover zips, buckles or other hard features can minimise
damage to the Scrubba wash bag.
 
- Avoid sharp or abrasive surfaces
While the Scrubba wash bag is designed to tackle rough terrain, where possible select the least abrasive surface available to use the Scrubba wash bag on.  Abrasive surfaces can accelerate the wear and tear of the Scrubba wash bag.  As with all waterproof products, try to clear sharp twigs and other objects from area to avoid puncture.

 

Why you may want a Scrubba Wash Bag

As our slogan suggests: The Scrubba wash bag will allow you travel clean, light and free. 

CLEAN

  • As shown in the video, the Scrubba wash bag works quickly and effectively, meaning that not only do you smell and look clean, you have more time to spend enjoying your travels.

LIGHT 

  • The Scrubba wash bag will not be the straw that broke the camel's back.  It only weighs around 160g and because it provides you with the freedom to wash your clothes whenever you want, you simply don't need to carry as many clothes, allowing you travel lighter.

FREE  

  • With the Scrubba wash bag, you no longer need to pay for laundry.  In fact you no longer even need to find a laundry.  This can save you a lot of money, particularly if you are travelling through Europe where it not uncommon to pay €5-€10 (that is $6.50-$13) per load in a hostel.
