The heart of the design is the old five gallon bucket. They are plentiful and you probably have a few stashed away in the garage that you never use. The buckets do need to be cleaned completely and thoroughly before construction so that no contaminants get into your cleaning water or on dishes or hands.

The cost is around $25 if you buy all new parts and much less if you use the five gallon buckets you have around the house.

The design is environmentally conscientious. The sink design allows you to segregate dirty water from clean water so you can dispose of the used dirty water properly.

The idea is that you have one of the necessary conveniences that is portable, safe, and friendly to the environment, costs very little, and lasts an extremely long time even with hard use.

A sink is a necessary luxury. Being self sufficient does not mean that you give up the devices and creations that make life easier, more convenient, safer, and healthier. This version of a sink does everything the sink in your kitchen does but it is lightweight, portable, and easy to make from materials you probably have at home.
