Whether you are traveling with dirty clothes or living in an area without access to electricity, laundry can go from being a chore to a monumental task. Perfect for small loads, the Scrubba is a portable bag that requires minimal amounts of water and can be folded down to fit into almost any suitcase. Large enough for several items at a time, the Scrubba takes only a couple liters of water, soap, and the energy of the user to agitate and clean the pieces inside. The inside of the bag contains small nodules that help with scrubbing, needing only 20-30 seconds to get everything nice and sudsy. Once the water is drained, clothes can be rinsed and then hung to dry.

From the GiraDora to the Laundry Pod, electricity-free washing devices are becoming more and more popular. The Scrubba wash bag is essentially a flexible wash bag that is able to hold several pieces of clothing, soap, and a couple liters of water. Perfect for those with limited space and resources, it can be packed down into a five ounce pocket. The Scrubba is available in red, black, and blue for $59.95 AUD and can be ordered through the Scrubba website.

    seems like just another thing to carry – I find putting my dirty clothes at the bottom of the shower and trampling on them as I wash effective – or wear them into the shower them take them off and rinse them along with your body . a good ziplock back and marbles would work as well – 59.95$ I don’tnink so . . . .

    Great idea! While wearing/washing one’s clothes in the shower, as noted in the above comment may sound good initially, actually, colored clothes washed in this manner will pick up the shower’s lime deposits and shower scum. Therefore, to prevent basically using your own clothes to wash someone’s (or some hotel’s) shower, the Scrubba sounds like a great idea to me.
    I often travel light in East and Southeast Asia and I have washed my clothes in bathroom sinks for years, and this looks like a much better option to me. As a huge fan of innovation and environmentally sustainable living, I really dig what you aiming to do with this product. Thanks!

    I agree with Acorn 100%, it is brilliant! … and I am an industrial designer myself. It seem very light weight and easy to pack, an elegant an efficient alternative/solution and a very good price too.
