    I carry an igloo cooler full of water and have a bottle of Dawn handy. I do wish I had a spigot that locked open, though...like the ones on the large coffee urns.

    I agree Runner,
    We all need a water container where you can open the spigot with your foot or elbow so you can rub your hands together as you wash and rinse.

    I used some collapsable water carriers intended for camping to transport water when I had to spray a bare ground site far from running water. The spigot on those is quarter turn to open, allowing me to use the orange hand scrub, then rinse under running water. Those water carriers even get warm if left in the sun, so I am washing with warm water.

    I got a sprayland 2.5 or 3 gallon tank. It has places on the side for bolts to go in. Push or pull water spicket on the bottom. It has the round twist on lid with the breather in the middle. My bro uses an igloo cooler. We carry little gojo's with.

    We carry a roll of paper towels in every truck. Summer = wiping off sweat. Winter (snow plowing) = blowing our noses. Do a search on hand/face soap -- you will see an LD-50 toxicity report on each one. my 2 cents

    This is actually one of the best setups. I thought about this before, and I think you may have just influenced me to do this, now.
