This one's the best, and I'm sure you'll get variations.
Take large clean 5 gallon bucket with lid. Cut small hole in center of lid.
For agitator purchase new clean toilet plunger... the basic, red-rubber, big
suction cup model. *Important*-- cut some vanes in the plunger. This will
improve water flow and prevent the object from showing up stuck to the camp
director's cabin front door <G>.
Put hot water, clothes, and a few tablespoons of soap (not detergent...
remember the ground water) into bucket (remember, this is a lot smaller than
your washing machine at home, so you need a LOT less soap. Bring Woolite or
other good liquid cold-water soap if you don't want to heat water). Put lid
over stick, plunge away. Rinse.
A Scout is (sorta) clean...

I useta be an Eagle...
' We used to be a Beaver and a good old Bobwhite too,
But now we've finished Foxing and we don't know what to do,
We're growing Owl and Eagle, and we can Bear no more,
So we're getting out of Gilwell while we can!'
Scouting is a way of life....oooommmmmmmmm...repeat as needed*
