I have an enameled steel bowl that I'm currently using for a sink ... it's nice to put it on the stove and have hot water that stays hot. I usually wash, place dishes on clean towel, replace dish water with clean water and a little bleach, then swish the dishes again in really hot water to rinse/sanitize, dry and put away.

I vote for putting the bowl somewhere other than the counter. Counter space is precious.

Did something similar in a small downstairs "mimi bsth" a few years ago. Used a 12" salad bowel. They love it. :D

Noticed a collapsible dishpan in Walmart the other day. Googled it up and there are collapsible dish pans, dish drainers and even buckets on line.

Hi all, I just use a rectangular plastic tub. Light, holds stuff, large enough for pots & pans. Can wash hair in it, take a sink bath if required. Keeps my counter clear, can be used on counter or picnic table.

:thumbsup: That's what we did, used a 12 inch SS mixing bowl. It works GREAT and I made it so I could lift it out and get to the storage under it. If it ever stops raining I will take a pic of it for you. We age getting SNOW in MAY Ugh!!! :(

We use these. We have two. They slip inside of each other and after clean up we can store the dishes and cookware in them.

A salad bowl works well, especially when paired with a tire, gas nozzle, and toolbox.

This is an inside sink, but I used a hard plastic salad bowl as a sink.

I have 2 of these for the teardrop:

For the "big rig" I have a fish-cleaning table with built-in faucet that connect to the outdoor shower (or directly to the water pedestal) and drains to a bucket.

These are also handy:

Two schools of thought exist here…. “Camping out” ( the old school Roughing it ) or bringing a Tiny house to a new place temporarily … :roll:
