Git you one of them warsh boards an find you a stream. Now mix a little potash with some lard and rub it into the clothes. rub them clothes together, and rub them on the warsh board, rinse and repeat as required.

Depends on how much/what type.

Some undergarments/delicates/swimsuits say 'hand wash only'- this is usually because the machine is too rough, or the chemicals are too harsh.

Fill a sink with water, add a LITTLE detergent (make sure its safe with your fabric), and dump the clothing in.  Gently rub the clothes/mix the water around, and let soak, lather rinse repeat.

Emphasis on the rinse...

Gently wring out the excess water, then hang or tumble dry (on low).
