Water Shortage- Here's What I Learned, part 2- Dishpans
I learned that when you have limited water, and you want to wash dishes, you better own some plastic dishpans.
You have to heat the water on the stove, then pour it into one dishpan for washing and one for rinsing.
You wash the dishes in the soapy water. You save the water after it is cold and yucky, and later you pour that water into a bucket and then use it to flush the toilet.
The next time you wash dishes, you start with the clean rinse water, and use it as the new dishwashing water (you have to add boiling water to it.) Then you put fresh hot water in the rinse pan.
If you don't have plastic dishpans, all of these steps are very difficult to do.
