Gear Test: The Scrubba Travel Washer

Australian adventurer Ash Newland came up with the idea of a clothes washer while travelling as he was packing for a trip to climb Kilimanjaro in 2010.

Amazed and impressed with how well it worked he continued to improve on his prototype when he got back and eventually brought his invention to market.
