Having a single, round, sink, I use a round plastic bowl from WalMart, available in pretty colors for outside use.

The perfect size, and mine is in a cherry red.

Run a little water in the bottom, add a dab of Dawn, wash and rinse, dry on a microfiber drying mat...also red.

Dump the water away from the site, when possible, or into the toilet.

I am also a big fan of paper plates, paper towels, and sturdy French fry boats available at Sam's, Costco and restaurant supply stores. No styrofoam.

Burn in a firepit when available.

Friends at a recent boondocking camping trip set up a small table by their outside shower, and she did dishes there with two collapsible buckets, dumping the water away from their site when finished.

Help me do my dishes

I wash, then put the un rinsed dishes in a countertop drain rack,,,, after all are washed I rinse the dishes as they come out of the rack, towel dry, and put them away.


Gradiens super tenui glacie.

This "wash dishes" thing required a few trips to a few of my bar-keeps. They were all in agreement, the people behind the kitchen door take care of dishes.

We have started to use paper plates, but you still have to wash the pots, pans and cutlery.
I too, wanted a double sink like my previous trailers had; but AS told me that 'EVERONE' Wanted the single tub.

You can't use paper pots and pans

I had a double sink in my trailer. I replaced it with a larger single sink. I couldn't soak or wash frying pans very easily in the double. Some of my plates didn't fit in the smaller sinks either.

Some plastic plates are recyclable, as are paper plates.

If I still had a double sink, I would bring a tupperware tub as a soaking sink

We've had double then single Airstream sink models. The big deep round bowl will wash anything and takes less countertop space, we like it. Just use one of the rinse methods mentioned and it works well. It's a tiny house compared to home, so things work a little different but the results are fine.

Dishes sit in a dish rack on a towel on top of the stove cover. Once dishes are done, I dump the soapy water into the toilet. What remaining water hasn't dried/drained from the dishes, I usually wipe dry with a dish towel and it's all done.

I think there have been multiple threads about the single vs. double sink debate, but I much prefer a deep single sink to shallower double sinks. And either of those to the shallow single sink that was in my Bambi. That was pretty much worthless as a sink.
This works for us, too !

Coming in a little late, but dishwashing is a subject near and dear to me. I use the same bucket as Janet H. As others do, I stack the washed dishes outside the bucket. I’ve found it easier to set the bucket on the counter when about half the dishes are done (plates, other flat items first) and then rinse and put in drainer. Not rinsing over the bucket prevents dilution and cooling of the dishwater--the first water out of the faucet is cool. The dishpan shown below is great. It fits on the sink of our 27 FB. It stores in the cabinet over the dinette easily.

Correction/addition: it is a red dish drainer (not dishpan) with a small spout at the bottom front to drain into the sink; purchased at "Container Store" in NYC 3 years ago

Oil change pan fits into sink

We use our Corelle plates all the time when camping. For doing the dishes, I use an oil change pan that fits into the sink. The oil change pan with an inch of water is the wash pan (placed on counter), rinse in the sink, and drain/dry on a drying mat placed on the countertop extension.

I took the double sink out of the Minuet and replaced it with a single large round. The double was not large enough to get a dinner plate into the bottom. I still have the double sink somewhere, couldn't stand to toss it.

I have a collapsible drying rack with inclined drip tray I setup next to the sink. When I wash, the sink carries the soapy water, cleaned dishes (unrinsed) go into the rack. When full/done, drain the sink, transfer the rack to the sink, rinse with scalding or boiling water, transfer drying rack back to drip try and let gravity/air do it's job.

Pics of the dish washing pans

Here is the system I mentioned earlier, we purchased from Amazon. They fold up for easy storage, and fit nicely in the sink when in use. Note they are nice size for washing and drying, and they match the gray colors in the AS....just saying. :-)
