Our home dryer is solar and wind driven. Sustainable wood clothes line pegs too.

I know we've all been teasing you a bit but if you go to a child's nursery type shop they sell plastic buckets with a clip/screw on lid for old fashioned terry cloth babies nappies/diapers.
if you put in your clothes with some fresh water and detergent and hang it over the side when you anchor/tie up the wave action will wash your clothes overnight.
If you put your potatoes/carrots in the string shopping bag and hang it overboard while you have a slow cruise that definitely works, cook the veggies in sea water to save your fresh and they taste good.

Thanks, Jeffk,
As a single guy, I've been self-sufficient for many years. I was amused that "wifey" and "admiral" were incorporated into many of the responses, although my original post never referenced a significant other. That said, I appreciate the helpful responses I've received.

I have an old Maytag Gasoline motor for a cloths washer (runs) if you get tired of peddling. On my sailboat the cloths went into a net bag at the end of a line towed behind the boat.

I have the same washer and use it for shorts and tee shirts. Does a good job cleaning, hang out to dry does take a long time.

Follow up: I purchased two five-gallon buckets, a plunger-style agitator and a manual spin dryer (looks much like an oversize salad spinner). I've been using for over a month with excellent results. Clothes are clean, I don't have to schlepp dirty clothes to a laundry, and I'm getting an upper body workout w/o costly gym fees. Win-win-win.

I also have a "wonder washer" and it worked very well for the two summers that we cruised full time.

When I went to university in Chicago when Jesus was in diapers, I bought this clothes dryer about the size of a smaller convection counter top oven. It had a small tumbler inside and basically was hooked up to some kind of hair blower mechanism. I could dry about 8 pair of socks or about 4 pair of under wear or two lighter shirts. The thing worked for a very long time. I bought it used somewhere and I've never seen on since then. It would have worked well on a boat.

This is about the closest I could find: https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-list...mv_size_name=0
