OK, have used my StockTank solution a few times, it works well. The only thing I hadn't anticipated was that, after I dispose of the wash water, I have to wait for the interior to dry before I can hang it on the wall. I can speed it up by placing the tub at an angle, which allows all the water residue to collect on one end, then get rid of it, or could probably sop it up with a towel, but so far I give it a half hour or so to evaporate on its own. And. although I can make it work for me, I have to be conscious about ensuring that all the drips and splashes stay inside the tub, particularly when moving the washcloth from the hot water pot. Might be worth it to make a support of some kind, from which I can suspend the pot over the tub.

Thanks for the update.. I will admit that when we really needed to collect the water and it was not just a matter of washing with as little as possible on a towel, and then saving for the hair washing water, then I have used the rubber feed bin, its black, is wide, its only a foot deep, and its crazy strong, handles all weathers and is easy to carry for dumping.. but would not be space saver but it can be placed outside for roof collecting when not in bath use if that was a choice.. I love them because even in the winter, they just freeze into dump blocks..

Well, it's time to upgrade this year. The sponge & cloth method works well, but I find it is not convenient enough for me to want to use it as often as I probably *should*. As I was bumbling through eBay & Amazon a few months ago, I found a battery-operated shower head.

Haven't decided on exactly how it will best suit me, but I'm thinking an inexpensive nylon "privacy cabana" placed around the stock tank should give me a relatively clean place to clean up, keep the bugs off me while I do it. I suspect it will use more water, but now that I have rainwater catchment in place, I can be a little less thrifty with it.
