Use Laundreez to wash out your clothes while camping!

I received 2 of these from Laundreez to review.  You can purchase Laundreez on their website for £23.33 and on Amazon for $29.99.

Laundreez is a portable clothes washer that is easily and conveniently taken along with you and can be used anywhere.  It folds up small for storing, so it doesn't take up a lot of space.  It is great to have on hand to wash out a few pieces of clothing as needed while camping.  If you camp out in nature, you're most likely not going to have access to a washing machine.  Even if you camp in a campground, they don't always have a laundry room.  And sometimes you just need to wash something out.  You could hand wash your clothing, but that is messy and boring.  But with Laundreez, it's easy!

Laundreez is very easy to use.  Just add a little detergent and then add water up to the fill line that is clearly marked on the side.  Add the clothing that you want to wash and push it down into the soapy water.  Carefully fold the top down 4 or 5 times and clip together.  Hold the clip in one hand, grab the bottom with the other and gently swish it around.  This is the washing action.  You can also let a little of the air out and use your hands to gently squeeze and knead the clothes through the plastic.   

Next you just let it sit and soak for a while.  There's no particular time limit, the longer the better.  Once you think it has soaked long enough, you unscrew the cap on the side and drain out the dirty water.  Then refill with fresh water and replace the cap to rinse the clothes.  Shake it around a bit and then let it soak for a while again.  When done, remove the cap and drain out all of the rinse water.  You may need to repeat the rinse process if the clothing still seems to be soapy.  When you are satisfied that they are rinsed thoroughly, squeeze out as much water as you can in order to speed up the drying time.  Then just hang the clothes and let them dry.  That's all there is to it! 

If you need to pretreat stains on your clothing, simply put a little detergent directly on the stain and then use the included net bag to rub the detergent into the stain.  Then proceed with the washing process as described.

I do have a couple of tips of things to avoid that I discovered when using my Laundreez.  The first tip is to remove the net bag when washing clothes.  I left it in the Laundreez and put the clothes inside of it for washing.  It didn't hurt anything, but I think it would work better not to use the net bag during washing.  The second tip is a big one.  Make sure you roll the top down tightly and clip it correctly.  If you don't, the water will gush up to the top and leak out.  I made a big mess on my first try because I didn't have it clipped correctly.  But once I rolled it down tighter and reclipped it in the correct way, I didn't have a problem.

Laundreez is versatile because it can also be used as a dry bag (to keep items dry around water or when it's raining), a cooler bag (fill with ice and drinks), a compression bag (to make more space in your luggage), a toiletries bag (to prevent spills and keep toiletries together and organized) and a water carrier for a campsite.  Overall, I found this to be an excellent product and it will come in very handy while camping or travelling.
