Here is my attempt at hand washing laundry! The only time I have done this was at a friend's Uncle's home while traveling. Actually feeling the clothes with my hands was relaxing, so excited to try this at home. Also, feeling overwhelmed at how efficient and cool everyone's set-ups are, but figure it's okay to start and learn 'cause this my first task!

We mainly wear sandals or barefoot, so no socks to wash. Doing some basic clothes from the past few days, a dress, and our towels. I used the laundry soap we already have (plant-based), but hope to look at the other posts on making my own once this runs out. It's crazy to see how much dirtier this water gets after washing!! My clothes were soaked, I hope to look back on this post on a future day when that drip water can water a plant!

Bathtub wash, rinse, roll items in towel to soak up some water, then hang to dry and fold!

Just trying to resubmit this...
Staff note (Nicole Alderman) :

The actual post is here: https://permies.com/wiki/20/108429/pep-nest/laundry-hand-PEP-BB-nest#1243512. But for some reason the BB certifying button isn't available on that post. So I'm certifying this post instead, with a link to the other that has the documentation.
