Now what about rinsing?
If you’re washing up at a sink that’s easier, but if you’re just in a field and you’ve had to walk to fetch water to wash up with, you need to think it through. By the end of the washing up load, the sudsy water will probably be a bit gross – and even if not, it’s not that nice to eat washing up liquid!
If there’s space and the weather’s nice, we just lay the clean crockery out on the grass in the sun, pour some clean water over and leave them to dry.
An alternative is to use bag 3 as a rinse bag – take it to the tap and put clean water straight in . (See earlier post for the 3 bag washing system!)
PS Being as you’re likely to be tipping your dirty washing up water into the hedge, we recommend swapping to an eco-washing up liquid.
