    • Set up after patrol dining fly and cooking areas
    • Pick site clear of rocks and LNT (established areas)
    • Consider adverse weather (wind, rain, drainage)
  • Sanitation
    • Latrines – 200’ away from water source, cooking & sleeping areas
    • Wash station – central location, near water
    • Sump – place to discard wash water/food from cooking
    • Identify areas for food storage – bear bags, trailers, buildings
wash station process
Wash Station Process
  • Equipment:
    • Paper Towels
    • Your Favorite Dishsoap
    • A Dishcloth/Sponge/Scrubby
    • Tongs
    • Table
    • Three Dishpans
    • Hot Water
    • Cool Water
    • A splash of bleach or sanitizing tablets (optional)
    • Dirty Dishes
step one heat the water
Step One: Heat The Water
  • Immediately after dinner is ready, we put two or three pots of water to boil on the stove while we are eating.
step two wipe the plates
Step Two: Wipe The Plates
  • After dinner everyone takes a paper towel and wipes their plate and silverware clean of any food particles.

Step Three: Set Up The Wash Tubs

step four prepare the tubs
Step Four: Prepare The Tubs
  • Tub A is for washing. We put a few squirts of dish soap in here, then fill the tub halfway with regular water.
  • Tub B is the rinsing tub and gets just plain water in it. We fill the tub 1/3 of the way with cool water, and the rest (about 2/3) with hot water.
  • Tub C is for sterilization health safety standards recommend 1 teaspoon of bleach for every 2 gallons of water
dumping the dishwater
Dumping the Dishwater
  • First dump out the water in Tub A.
  • Now...dump the rinse water from Tub B into the empty Tub A (this gives Tub A a rinse with water that you already have).
  • Now dump Tub C into Tub B. So now Tub C is empty and clean and you are done with it. Turn it upside down with your other clean dishes to dry.
  • So now you have water in only Tub A and Tub B. Go ahead and dump the water from Tub A again
  • Now pour the water from Tub B into Tub A so Tub B is clean and empty, and Tub A is getting its final rinse with the batch of hot rinse water. Put Tub B upside down with the clean dishes to dry
  • Finally, dispose of the water in Tub A and turn it over to dry...and you are done! And your dishes are done too!
