Something that acts like a faucet?

ok, strange questions. We have a camp with no water. We buy the gallons of water and use that. but I end up using like 1/2 gallon just to clean say 2-4 things. Especially because it needs to be rinsed and it's hard to rinse dish liquid of stuff without using a certain amount of water. It's also hard with the way it just pours out so fast, half of it just going into the sink.

Are there some camping utilities out there that help in this area?

What about buying one of those large spring water containers with the spout? It can be refilled, if need be, with other water. That way you have that spout to work out of and TWO hands to rinse.

hmmm good idea and better than what I've been doing, but it still comes out pretty fast when you open those sprouts I think. Perhaps I should think about doing the old fashion bucket system. one for washing and another for rinsing, the best I can.

When I was a child, my family camped and that is the way Mom did dishes. She had 2 dishpans. She would cook dinner and then put 2 pots of water on the stove to heat while we ate. One pot would go into each dishpan then she would add her soap to one and some cold water to cool it down enough to put your hands in for washing. The rinse pan stayed hot from the stove and she had a pair of tongs just for taking the dishes out of the hot water to be dried. It was very efficient and saved on water as well.

There is a battery operated pump you can buy from regal. It fits beautifully in those jugs you get from the store. Dunno if that helps or not.

you can bring a card board box and a garbage back and open the bag in the bog to give the bag some shape and support and its a sink.

box folds up and the bag can be reused for the time your there

I just use my camelbak. I hang it up above my head and then just pinch the mouthpiece and it acts like a hose.
