But taking less clothes means more washing and its no fun trying to wash and dry your favourite t-shirt in a tiny hotel bathroom.

The wonderful Scrubba™ washbag seems to be the perfect answer to all those problems. Basically it’s a washing machine in a bag. It sounds too good to be true, but it does actually work.

Ruaridh (8) is a master for spilling beans on his nice white t-shirts and on a camping trip to the Lake District, it was time to test out the Scrubba™.
