Dishwashing-Pioneer Style

As you may or may not know, we have a very nasty drain clog in our kitchen. Like, standing water in the sink for two days nasty. Running the dishwasher is a no-go, since the water backs up into the sink... and stays there! And since Roto-Rooter was a no-show for us today, we're still clogged, and waiting on another plumber, who will hopefully at least have the decency to call if he can't make it. ANYWAY!!!

The dishes have been piling up! Today I was off for two doctor's appointments. When I finally got home, I decided to tackle the dishes... But HOW...? Tub? Eeew, no way! Outside with the hose? Ok... maybe... but how would I keep the clean dishes clean, and how would I corral a little water and soap for the washin' up?? See below for the how. =D

Just like the pioneer days!! You know... if the pioneers had plastic laundry baskets... and fluffy white towels... and Dawn dish soap. Other than that, just like the pioneer days! =D Either way, it worked pretty well. Wouldn't recommend it if you have back issues, though. =p The hose water was nice and warm, and when I needed an extra burst of water power, *WOOSH* Full blast, Rudolph! I may just wash my dishes like this from now on! ....NOT! LOL
