Run some hot water with some washing powder and just sort of stir them and rub the clothes, then rinse them with fresh water, ring them out as tight as you can and hang them to dry. I used to handwash alot of Alyssa's clothes when she was a newborn.

the only thing I would add is ring them out as tight as possible because on the radiator they will take a while to dry!

That's good news Kate! Thank goodness you didn't have to wait any longer. It's such a PITA when these things break down.

Rather than just wringing clothes out, you can get more water out of them by rolling them in a dry towel. Just pop your item on a towel and roll it up as tight as you can. It'll squeeze quite a lot of water out, even after wringing.
