Washing Dishes at the Campground

We love to camp and cooking over a campfire is the most fun. It's always a challenge each trip to see what wonderful meals we can come up with to cook over an open flame. But at the end of those delicious meals comes time to do the dishes.

While we use paper plates, etc. there are still pots and cooking utensils to wash. While cooking, we put on a large pot of water to heat up. By the time the meal is over, we have a nice boiling pot of water to wash dishes with. We have two small plastic dish tubs we use, one for washing and one to rinse in.

We like to have the water as hot as we can comfortably stand to wash the dishes in and may have to add a little cool water to the hot water to get it to that state. Then we add the utensils to soak for a bit and wash up as usual and then rinse in warm water in the other tub. I like to use water as hot as possible for greasy dishes/utensils. We drain the rinsed dishes on a towel and dry and put away in our tub just for cooking.

I have a large tea kettle that I fill with water and place on the camp fire while we are eating our meal; I have a large metal dishpan and a plastic large dishpan for washing and rinsing dishes. I have used this method for over 30 years of camping. We use paper products for plates, cups for drinking but the cooking utensils have to be washed. After the meal, the cooking pots and utensils and other items used in the meal are washed, rinsed and placed on a small plastic drain board to dry; the large metal dishpan fits over the drain board.
