Large tub or cylinder one end open one end flat.
clean plumber's friend.
Add water to first, add clothes to water, use latter to mush'em around.
Works MUCH better on flat ground than a table.
The creative may add a 2nd cylinder, approx 1/4 the diameter of the
first, erose at bottom, to contain the plunger. Add this 2nd cylinder
before the water and clothes.
Or, you COULD use the old-fashioned way: take clothing to running water,
dunk; twhack against large rock couple of times, dunk again, spread to dry.
Interesting possibilities here for bored Scouts, of course ...
