After being a Veteran of the U.S. Army for 8 years, I sure wish I had something like this back when I was stationed in Desert Storm/Shield or while out in the field doing training exercises. This would have been perfect for being able to at least wash my BDU’s on a regular basis and have some sort of freshness in my life back then.
What about those that like to do a lot of hiking and traveling? Perfect for those as well. Imagine a system that you can wear on your back, using a minimal amount of water, a little bit of soap, and the power of walking or moving to wash your clothes while you are away from the comforts of home? You can have that with the Scrubba Wash Pack, so check out what it is all about below.
About the Scrubba Wash Pack
Invented by Australian scientist and entrepreneur Ash Newland, The Scrubba Wash Pack is a travel day pack that weighs only 10oz and doubles as an electricity-free washing machine. The new product is a follow up to the successful Scrubba Wash Bag, released in 2012, which uses the same technology.
The Scrubba Wash Pack is a weatherproof day pack with adjustable straps that can be taken anywhere and worn in multiple ways. Then, at the end of the day, it can be used to wash clothes in just minutes as thoroughly as an electronic washing machine.
The Scrubba Wash Pack is available as a result of a successful crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo that raised more than $20,000. Newland opted to use crowdfunding after his 2012 campaign which helped introduce the original Scrubba Wash Bag to the marketplace. In addition to raising the money to make the product, it helped build an engaged, passionate community around the product. More than 70,000 Scrubba Wash Bags have been sold since launch, and Newland is looking forward to even more success from the Scrubba Wash Pack.
Check out how it works below.
“People love our original Scrubba Wash Bag, but it often just sits in a backpack or suitcase between washes,” said Newland. “We invented the Scrubba Wash Pack so we would have a product that was multi-functional. Most travellers pack a day pack already, so why not pack a lightweight one that is versatile, weatherproof and can also wash your clothes?”
Washing with the Scrubba Wash Pack requires no electricity and minimal water. Travelers put their dirty clothes in the pack, add water and cleaning liquid, seal the pack and rub the clothes against the hundreds of “nobules” inside. The nobules function just like a flexible washboard in an enclosed waterproof bag, and in three minutes, you have a machine-quality wash. Users then rinse the soap from the bag and hang the clothes to dry.
It took 18 months and several prototypes for Newland to develop the Scrubba Wash Pack. The adjustable straps allow users to wear it as a backpack or a messenger-style sling bag. Pockets on shoulder and waist straps make items (such as your passport or phone) easy to access, and the abrasion-resistant base and back panel make it durable for adventure.
