    I generally wash when water affords it!
    I carry several net laundry bags and a waterproof bag!
    Water, clothes and a little detergent in the waterproof bag, agitate then let soak, agitate again, drain, rinse, rinse again, wring, hang big bits and hang laundry bag with small bits!
    Do this in the morning and use heat of day to dry!
    Most of my stuff is quick dry and can be put on wet if needed!

    In a creek. I use modern function fabrics so just water is fine and I hang them overnight and either shake the ice out of them or if the temperatures allow let them dry properly.

    Same here, except I only use natural fibre clothing, & I dry my clothing in front of a fire or hang to dry. I carry spare clothing, shirt, waistcoat & breechclout.
