I’ve mentioned before how geeks and nature usually don’t play well together. One reason is because nature can be messy. The Scrubba Portable Washing Machine makes nature a little less dirty, which means a little friendlier for usually desk-bound geeks.
You’ve decided to go camping and you’re determined to make it as civilized as possible. You’ll be sleeping in the Bang Bang Solar Powered Tent, drinking fresh water with the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, and eating hot meals with the Stove In A Can… but you’re still going to stink after a couple of days in the Great Outdoors. Fortunately, you can scrubba the funk out of your clothes without resorting to dunking your wardrobe in a creek and beating it against a rock.
Lightweight and small enough to slip comfortably into your pocket, but still capable of doing two days of laundry in one load, the Scrubba gets the job done with an internal flexible washboard covered in plastic scrubbing nodules. It requires a little elbow grease to get the job done, but it’s still easier than lugging around an actual washing machine, as proven in the video below.
The Scrubba Portable Washing Machine is available for $67.19 at Firebox.com.
