I discovered this nifty device thanks to a full-time RVer blog - sorry, I can't remember which one, otherwise I'd give you credit for it. Patrick and I are lucky to have so many great RV blogs to follow and learn from.
The Breathing Mobile Washer is inexpensive and easy to use, and actually works quite well. It's kinda fun too - love the sound and churning of the water. Our first campsite is an RV park, where we are learning how our Bambi works, and what our water and power consumption needs are, so we have laundry facilities here, but I decided to order the washer and give it a test run anyway in anticipation of future boon docking. I was thrilled with the results, and am actually going to use this washer as much as I can right away, because, no offense to our current park's laundry facilities, and to laundromats in general, but these places have always kind of skeeved me out. They are almost never as clean as I would like, and the machines are sometimes grimy. Washing machine agitators covered in gray slime and dryers with full lint trays from someone else's load make me crazy, pushing every anal retentive button I have. The man who just bought our townhouse is a lucky guy, because he has the cleanest washer and dryer in town - I actually made Patrick take the washer apart and clean the drum occasionally, and flush out the dryer vent as well. I also vacuumed out my own lint tray and the whole dryer several times a week. You are welcome sir, whoever you are. Enjoy. Yes, I'm a clean freak. And this little mobile washer and a drying rack will keep me out of icky laundromats. Yay.
By the way, most RV parks have rules against doing or drying laundry at your campsite, because they want you to use their facilities, but this park is pretty laid back, so I don't think it will be a problem. And if the park manager calls me out on it, then I'll just have to show him what he'll need to do to bring the laundry room up to my standards of clean so that I can use it more often, and there is no way that's gonna happen. Because I am a Jedi Master Cleaner, people. NO ONE can touch me on this. Just ask my husband. - Kimberly Saunders
