Great pricing on buckets, but shipping isn't cheap since they're bulky.

Plus I always have lots of firewood and don't need to worry about a fire pan or blanket. I just light one end of the raft on fire and rebuild when it starts to get a bit cramped.

However I do like to have clean hands.

Just ordered 2 three gallon buckets and a lid, thanks for the tip!! Played with the idea of building my own but the Tye Works handwash station was too good to pass up

I’ve moved to just using a water cube over a bucket. I prefer gravity flow and lots of water to wash. (Note the photo below is not mine, but you get the idea)

I usually start with clean drinking water in the cube. Then move onto the next clean available water source. If not drinking water I add a couple drops of bleach or boil some water on the fire at night to add to the jug.

This method wastes more water, and is probably not so good on a silty river where clear water is scarce.

I burn a hole in the center of the raft which does double duty as kitchen sink and groover, thus the need for a good hand wash system!

I use the same set up with 1/4 inch coper tubing at the wash bucket. I use clear plastic tubing from the supply bucket to the fuel bulb and on to the coper tubing. The tubing is flexible and is stored in the bucket with the lid for transport as well as the soap and trash bags. Try to have two stations with one at the groover and one at the kitchen. The coper tubing is held in place with A clamps.
