Ultralight Scrubba Mini is a palm-sized washing machine for those traveling light


Seven years after impressing us with the world's smallest and lightest washing machine, the team behind the five-ounce (140 g) Scrubba has returned to Kickstarter promising to help hygienically-minded travelers shed even more weight. The palm-sized Scrubba Mini is half the weight of the original and packs up into a tighter bundle, though that doesn't mean it's limited to just laundering socks and jocks.

ntended for ultra-light travel adventures, like hiking and camping, the Scrubba Mini tips the scales at just 70 g (2.5 oz). Like the original, the idea here is that folks traveling light with few clothing items can keep their wardrobe fresh by cleaning items as they go, meaning they can pack less when they set off from home.

Currently on Kickstarter, the Scrubba Mini is available for early pledges of AU$35 (US$25)
