Imagine that you are going to, let say, camping, for more than a week, and you need to bring a large bag to carry your clothes.
The worse situation happens when it is time to go back home, and you have to bring a bag of dirty clothes. With a small and portable washer, you don’t need to bring all of clothes.

Liquid detergent is more expensive but using this kind of detergent offers other benefits. First, the washing result is cleaner. Besides, it doesn’t leave residue like other detergents.
