# 41 is a pointer to my wife's blog article on the Hill Billy Washing Machine we made back in 2012. We used it for 2 weeks of car camping with a kid in cloth diapers - used it for washing our clothes and the diapers. Works great. It would work well on canoe trips as well.

I met someone who dries toothpaste.

Might try a bread tag as a clothespin to see how well it works.

I had never heard of the bread tag as clothespin thing, but it may have resolved a mystery. On family trips, after we have packed up, the last thing we do on a site a “Ten pieces of trash”; each of us picks up ten pieces of trash.

We pick up any obvious stuff during our stay, and on a clean site finding ten pieces of trash can be a challenge. Those ten pieces usually include a mix of frayed scrap rope ends, caps from fuel cans or bottles, stray shreds of plastic bags. . . . . .and bread tags. Always bread tags.

I just use a doubled/twisted rope as a clothesline; a clothesline rope with another cord twisted a couple dozen times in a helix around the first and pulled taut. Just stick the pant legs, shirt arms, socks or bandana through the twist and let the wind blow.
