washing clothes: powder or liquid
- 4 responses so far
I used powder. I was able to find soap that was in individual packets at REI. It worked out since I didn’t have to worry about liquid leaking or any of the powder spilling if I didnt use it all. Take advantage of the places that will do the washing for you for a small price (make sure to get there early)
i’m going to take some paper laundry soap like this:
it comes in a really small packet to carry around, and you don’t have to worry about it spilling or leaking anywhere. it can be used for hand washing or in a machine
I’m taking liquid fabric wash.. I just think it will be easier & more convenient!
You can get a liquid detergent specifically for camping from places like Kathmandu and other camping stores.
They come in a small, secure bottle and you only need about 5ml per 10L wash. It’s about $8 for a bottle and one or maybe 2 would last you for that amount of time. It’s a bit more expensive than a $2 wool wash from Coles but it’s a lot smaller and less likely to leak everywhere.
