Emergency hand-washing system PHLUSH
The Twin-Bucket Emergency Toilet
post by Flo Hoylman
Until needed, these buckets can be nested for storage and used for everyday cleaning chores. If water is shut off during an emergency, the twin-bucket system can be used with a plastic seat to separate pee from poop: reducing disease and making the contents of each bucket easier to handle. Lids also reduce odors and discourage pests.
PHLUSH has also designed a two-bucket hand washing system (shown at left). More information on disaster sanitation is available at the PHLUSH website.
