Home-made Manual Clothes Washer

Over on Survival Blog I came across this short letter describing how to make a washer out of a 5-gallon bucket with lid and a plunger. Good to know! Hand-washing laundry is a pain, especially for those of us who grew up with washers and dryers.

Also there are articles on Home-made laundry detergent and home made soap (part 1, part 2, part 3). Knowing how to make soap will be a big help and also a barter item later.



  1. Plunger? Never thought of that! Was going to use a rock to pound out laundry. THANKS!
