Washing clothes on a boat

I have reviewed the EcoWash Portable Washer. Take a look at see if it works for your needs. (And be entertained as well)

Aw, i'm sorry if you didn't like it. Maybe someone is will. But I will work on not being full of myself. I meant the vid comically. But comments are appreciated. We are always a work in progress.

Re: Washing clothes on a boat

OK, so the first couple of these clickbait posts were forgivable, but all youíre doing is trying to use SN to feed traffic to your site. Please Ö if you really want to contribute to this forum, then start a discussion about washing clothes.

Re: Washing clothes on a boat

I too notice that you are using the forum to promote your video blog business. I don't care pretty much one way or the other about that. I notice that you use sexual inuendo to draw people in. "Going Topless" and "Talking Dirty" are designed to get men to click on your site. Perhaps that works (I don't know), but it seems pretty manipulative. I do wish you well in your travels and in your video efforts. I have two comments about the video:

I notice you are using your clothes washer in the harbor, with the discharge of dirty water going into the harbor water. This is a pretty big error. Harbor water is dirty enough. If you're going to wash cloths at the harbor, you should walk it to a land based machine like the rest of us do, so that the water can be treated. If your thought was just to demonstrate the product, then demonstrate the use of it properly, and in an appropriate location.

A bucket can be used for so many things, including washing clothes. A single use item like the washer you are showing takes up storage space. A washboard and bucket might be a better idea. Or a plunger. On a fishing boat I crewed on once, we rigged a plunger to a small electric motor and washed our clothes in a bucket. Very luxurious.

Re: Washing clothes on a boat

If you use biodegradable soap in your washing machine is discharging the grey water in the harbor much of an issue?

Crabby,
There is a 'cruising videos' forum which might be more appropriate for posting links to a vlog. Probably catch less grief if you did.

Re: Washing clothes on a boat

Crabby, the thing is, and perhaps no one has wanted to risk offending you by letting you know this, most of us have no interest in washing soiled clothing on a boat. We have people whose job includes ensuring that fresh new clothes are purchased and stowed to replace the soiled ones, and other people who come and dispose of the soiled ones.

Laundering and re-using soiled yachtwear...really...that's just so desperate. I hope your situation improves.

Yes, it is an issue. First, from comments here it's not clear if she used biodegradable detergent. Even if she did, it takes time for detergent to biodegrade (around 6 months), and would remain sudsy until then. So we've got pollutants building up in the harbors, and bacteria growing in response (much like algae blooms form when too much nitrogen builds up). Bottom line, keep all detergents out of the harbor wherever possible. Use shore-based washing machines.

Manufacturers love to use the "biodegradable" tag to mislead people into guiltless use of their products, even in inappropriate situations.

I haven't looked at any of OP's videos, as I sensed an overwhelming appearance of clickbait. I haven't said anything until now because I didn't want to make an unfair accusation, and I didn't want to waste my time going to check. But if it's clickbait, I'll second the suggestion that it does not belong here.
