Felting Without A Washing Machine

Well, we broke down and got a front loader washer after the other one died. Apparantly felting was not the cause of the late washer's demise, just a loose belt. It will however, take a bit of finangaling to fix. My hubby will eventually get to it, but at the moment, it does not have top priority. So, I've been aquiring a stack of knitted items waiting to be felted. As the pile grows, I have begun to debate wheter or not to attempt felting on the stove top. So far I have convinced myself to just wait. I don't really want the kitchen and house smelling like wet wool. We'll see how long I can stick it out! Any advice out there would be appreciated! I've even contemplated going to the laundromat, but am not sure if they have top loaders with agitation any more either!
