As above saves scratching the sink, also means you can tip water straight down a drain or as I have often done recycle it to another container to wash all the flench flies off the screen etc!

If you buy 2 of the washing up bowls, as we did, then one can be used in the shower. Stand in it ( the rectangular shape of this one is perfect for most sized feet and it doesn’t skid around), soap and rinse off as usual and then, at the end, use the water that is in the bowl to properly wash feet and any bits that were missed.

You can then- when dressed !- take the dirty water outside and put it in the drain, so not filling your tank.

I have one of the collapsable bowls discussed in this thread.
So that when folded it still fits the sink, I have customised mine using a  4" angle grinder with a coarse sanding disc fitted!
I have found no problem with the strength or stiffness after the modification.
Although I do most washing up using site facilities, I actually find the small drainer wire and the draining board very useful when washing up in the van. I have an additional drainer for cutlery.
I use a plastic clip top box to take a small container of washing up liquid, sponge, scourer and cloths. This can be tucked under the arm when carrying the full washing up bowl to site sink. The box lid is left off unless the box is on the move.
So now all my washing up tackle, cutlery drainer, draining board and chopping board and sink plug all fit in the sink with the glass lid lowered fully. Being a good fit they do not rattle about.

Hello,
We have a 2008 Sigma, and I think the sinks are the same size as other models.
Have a look at the Spinflo 03PV1007 at £9.99 from Caravan Accessories.  It fits perfectly in the sink whilst allowing the glass lis plenty of room when closed.
