Having to wash your clothes while caravanning is not as hard as you think. Take your pick of our top ways to refresh your wardrobe in the outback while drying with a folding clothesline.
The most fun part of caravanning is glamming. So, instead of piling your muddy and messy clothes in the corner of your caravan only to stink out your van, put some soap and water to good use.
These are the top ways to wash your clothes while caravanning, from taking the easy way out to purchasing a product made just for this purpose like our folding clothesline for drying.
Folding Washing Machines
If you want something more convenient and have a bit more space in your RV, you might consider a folding and compact washing unit. Some of these are essentially mini spin washing machines that work with electricity and some are electricity-free washing machines that are powered by a hand crank.
Larger RVs and motorhomes may have space for compact or full-size washing machines. A number of washing units have been designed to work aboard caravans
Of course, the downsides of installing a washer or dryer is they are expensive, take up a lot of space, and will require maintenance. So, a must have for laundry is a folding clothesline from Mrs Pegg’s Handy Line.
Hand wash your laundry.
We know you didn’t want to hear this way to wash your clothes while caravanning, but hand washing is one of the easiest, fool-proof ways to ensure clean clothing, with a little extra elbow grease.
So instead of always relying on staying at a campsite or caravan park that provides washing facilities, bring with you the products necessary for hand-washing your laundry.
We know that it’s very easy to get messy while caravanning, so being able to simply take those muddy jeans and wash the stains out right away is definitely something you’re going to want while caravanning for a few days, or just a single night.
You will need to take plastic washing bowls, some detergent, and water. You will warm the water up in a kettle, and add the detergent directly to the dirty clothes in the bowl. Then, scrub away, and you’re sure to have clean, good as new clothing in minutes.
Some of the best products allow you to wash your clothes and easily collapse the bowls into a more compact and folding accessory for easy traveling.
Which detergent do I choose?
You don’t want to choose a washing detergent that will be harmful to the environment if you’re dumping your dirty water right into nature. Don’t be that person! Instead, be aware of the tons of brands that provide detergents that are eco-friendly. And to find these, simply discover the detergents that say they are suitable for septic tanks, and of course be sure to pour your water away from a stream or watercourse, about 200 feet to be safe.
The best way to dry while on the Road
Our last tip to wash your clothes while caravanning has to do with drying your clothes. A simple way to take advantage of the nature around you, bring your own folding clothesline. Just be sure to clean it up once you’re done with your stay.
If the old-fashioned route isn’t your style, then there is always our folding clothesline that can be easily thrown in the boot of your car. If you’re looking to dry your washing on the road a Mrs. Pegg’s folding clothesline will be perfect.
If you are planning to air dry your clothing with our folding clothesline, be sure that you time your washing so there is enough time for your clothes to dry completely before you need to move again. Traveling with damp clothing is not fun, and clothing tends to become smelly and wrinkly when not dried properly. Remember that clothes will dry more slowly in humid climates than in dry climates.
For clothes drying pack quick drying clothing when you can. Clothes that dry overnight or within 24 hours will give you much more flexibility in timing and doing laundry. Remember that synthetic fabrics typically dry faster than natural fibres, and quick dry fabrics include polyester, nylon, and other synthetic fabrics.
