Uncertain if a video exists but here are my suggestions:...just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a decent video to learn the basics of hand washing clothes before heading down for my ROP.
Do recruits hand wash their clothes throughout RT?
What is a "grot" " dhobi" bag if you dont mind me asking ?I wasn't allowed to use washers/dryers til week 7. Although I'd opt to hand-wash most of the time anyway to save money and the admin of waiting for a dryer etc. Unless of course just came out the field or you've got a big load from bottom field etc. Often you'll just throw a grot dhobi bag in and take it in turns.
I am planning on washing the least dirty pieces first so the water needs changing less frequently which saves time and equally better for the environment. That's how I used to do it when I was living without a washing machine. How likely is that all the basins are used at the same time? I have some collapsible plastic laundry baskets I used to use so I could pre-soak the dirtiest bits in them before washing and rinsing them last in the basin. Would that be allowed or that's again something that would be considered gucci/not allowed by your TT? Many thanks
there is a video if you watch the officer training series for the royal marines made in the 80s I believe on youtube, it covers the technique fully:Hi all just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a decent video to learn the basics of hand washing clothes before heading down for my ROP.
