This is a genius idea for any outdoor situation where you might need to wash your hands, but are not near to a water supply.
It is so useful for camping, gardening, barbecues, and picnics.
- 1 plastic bottle with a screw top
- 1 pointed tool or drill bit
- Choose a large sturdy plastic bottle if possible, but any size or quality will do.
- If you are using a pointed tool such as a pair of scissors, heating them up in the flame of a gas cooker or a lighter will help, but be careful the handle doesn't get hot too.
- Make a small hole very near the base of the bottle.
- Cover the hole with your finger while you fill the bottle and replace the cap.
- Stand the bottle near the edge of your work surface and loosen the lid.
- The water will stream out of the hole.
- You will now be able to wash your hands freely.
- To stop the stream of water simply screw the lid tight again.
