Default Re: old fashioned washboard to save on laundry?

I would certainly not feel comfortable asking the cabin Steward to launder such items on a daily basis.

We have considered adult diapers but he is still to large at 380 to fit in one. He had his gastric bypass surgery last July and refuses to abide by the diet and instead gorges himself on sweets 24/7. The sweets cause him to have uncontrollable flatulence and frequent accidents.

My mother-in-law is the one who suggested the old fashioned washboard but I am open to suggestions.
You sure have a lot on your shoulders.
