Dishes in the Yurt



Steps for doing dishes in the yurt:

1. make sure the water containers are filled up (fill them up at the in-laws’ house and haul them out to the yurt)


2. fill kettle and boil water on stove


3. attempt to create a temperature between ice cold and scalding hot


4. wash dishes in bucket


we’re teaching her early 😉

5. fill kettle again and boil more water

6. rinse dishes and place on table to dry

7. dump dish water outside

Update: We now have a sink hooked up to a French drain so we can dump the dishwater down the sink. We have to be careful about what we put down the drain so we buy the terribly overpriced biodegradable dish soap that doesn’t have much gumption but is good for the planet.
