If you travel a lot, you’ll know that one of the biggest dilemmas is traveling light but still having enough clothes. In some locations, finding a laundry can be hard and expensive – or if you’re further afield, impossible to find. Australian inventor Ashley Newland has come up with the Scrubba Washbag, a possible solution that is currently being funded on Indiegogo.
The 142g (5oz) bag is compact and portable and has a flexible washboard built into it. To use you just fill with 2-4 litres of water and a small amount of soap, shampoo or washing liquid, throw in the equivalent of around 2-3 tee shirts and agitate for 40 secs. When finished, you pour out the water, rinse your clothes and then dry. Voila, clean clothes.
The project is already fully funded (with over 3 weeks to go), and you can pre-order for $40. Ashley expects to have the product shipping around mid April.
p.s. Being an Aussie I would of thought he’d have picked a better name. Scrubber is Aussie slang for a….ummm, I’ll let you research this yourself
