Approved BB submission
Here is my submission.

Here are my basket of dirty laundry and my wash tubs.

We catch rainwater from the carport roof to do laundry.

Laundry soaking. For soap, I used soap nuts placed in a little cotton bag.

Agitating with my laundry plunger for about 15 minutes.

Through the wringer and into the rinse water.

Drying on the clothesline.

Dried, folded, and ready to put away.

Approved BB submission
Here is my submission for the Nest - Sand - Required List - Wash Laundry by Hand BB.

I decided to do this week's laundry in the bathtub using two buckets as my wash/rinse tubs.  The clothing included three pairs of pants, a pair of jeans, 8 shirts, plus socks and underclothes.

My shirts go on hangers and get dried that way year-round hung outside or indoors in wetter weather.  Then they go straight into the closet.  

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided:
- post two pics of clothes being washed (plus a time-lapse video while washing socks)
- post pic of clothes being dried
- post pic of clothes folded

washed, wrung by hand, dried (full 24 hours) in basement using ceiling pipes as rod for hanging and small rack. i live in a relatives home and am unable to hand a clothes line outdoors, this is the system she uses for drying. i used soapnuts to wash the clothes. only 1 shirt and pj's retained the wrinkles from wringing, i am not particular anyway since it's still cold and i layer.

Staff note (Mike Barkley) :

Shannon, please click the 3 ... buttons on the right side of your other buttons. You should see the magic red "submit BB" then. Girbot is not letting me fix that for you. If you don't see the button or it doesn't work please use the report button so we can find a solution. Or just try reposting it using the BB button next time. The actual laundry work looks fine to me.
