Hand Washing Laundry in a 5 Gallon Bucket

This method of Hand Washing Laundry in a 5 Gallon Bucket is perfect option for people wanting an off the grid option of cleaning their clothing. Whether your camping or have clothing that recommends “hand wash only”, you don’t have to fill a huge container to get the job done.

A five gallon bucket and a tall wide mouth mason jar can be just what you need. The tall wide mouth mason jar acts as agitator pushing clothes down while allowing the soapy water movement. You can actually pull the mason jar up with soapy water in it to see how dirty the water has become. If extremely dirty, you may need a drain and add a second batch of soapy water to continue washing your clothes in.
