Hand wash station

I did a search and got nothing. I know I have seen a few here, please share your hand wash station designs.
Be safe out there...

DPort - Here is the hand wash station I put together - if you Google: 'Sandbar Mfg. HapyHands Hand Wash Station', you'll get several sites that sell it. I bought the foldable basin at a local camping store, and picked up the plastic ammo can at Sportsman's Warehouse. I put a soap bottle in the tray, fill the ammo can with river water, unfold the bucket and we good to go. The bulb foot pump works really well hands free and doesn't use too much water. All of it stores in the ammo can - it's lightweight and easy.

This one (like the one darryl shows) are available from stores for about $40 to $70. Or you can make the same thing for under $10 with a trip to Ace Hardware.

Tuff River Stuff sells the whole hand wash package complete with ammo can. You can't kill it.

we use a system that isn't as fancy but very compact and works well... Two colapsable buckets one for clean water and one to catch dirty soapy water.. and two tin cans.. one has a bail on the top to hang from a branch and has three small holes in the bottom.. the other is to fill said can.. gives you about a minute of run time.. not fancy but works and doesnt take up space..

I made a tripod of 1/2" PVC. One 10' stick cut into thirds. Only cost a couple bucks and weighs nothing. I drilled a small hole in the top of each to run a nylon line through and around so it hinges and hung a hook from it.

I found a primer pump at Walmart and upgraded my drip system a few years ago but still use the tripod, collapsible buckets, and plastic honey jar with holes punched in it for a showerhead.

Why not a bottle of hand sanatizer? I do multiple long trips every year and have never had an issue with needing to clean my hands better than with soap and water.
