*bump* I have seen some posts where people use one of those hand powered "washing machines" that are designed for camping. I think they're about $15 and I have been REALLY tempted to buy one for emergencies.

I'm using a small portable washer and I'm having a hard time adjusting the amount of soap to use, so I'm giving you another bump cause I want answers too :-)

Re: Any hand wahers?

I've handwashed a few times when traveling bc I was leary of the available washer.... corroded inside with some sharp parts I feared would tear our cds. I just grabbed a bottle of original dawn ultra and handscrubbed each insert and pocket individually and rinsed in the sink with warm running water... not exactly water efficient but it got the job done. I hand-rung them and line dried on a wooden sock rack. The key was rinsing rinsing rinsing til there was no possible trace of soap left. Sometimes I boil the inserts for about 5 mins after handwashing just to make sure ANYTHING possibly left gets killed then rinse and ring before line drying. I don't regularly handwash but ds is allergic to sposies so having clean cds even when traveling is absolutely neccesary. HTH!

FYI: Please keep in mind, I only use pul and suedecloth pockets, 100% bamboo inserts, and hemp/cotton fleece doublers.
