I know what you are going through. I have NEVER had a sink in a room. I
am a traveling art teacher and go class to class with no sinks for 30
years. To handled the problem of the kids washing hands in the bucket.
It does seem like a health hazard. Here is what I do.
I have a large bucket filled with clean soapy warm water. Most of the
time the janitor closets are locked and I spend 10 to 15 minutes finding
them. When it is clean up time, I myself hand a clean soapy paper towel
to each child and they clean off theri hands that way. They do NOT also
get a dry towel as that would be expensive. This way, the water stays
clean and the ONLY hands in the bucket are MINE!!!!. Works great for a
traveling art teacher. I let the kids go by rows and give each one a
clean soapy towel that they throw into the waste can. If I were to let
each child wash his hands in the bucket it would be filthy!!
Remember, only your clean hands touch the water!!! I think this would be
a solution to your problem.
