            Tubtrug Colanders are SO handy!

              Best Uses

                This colander is such a great tool. I place my vegetables or fruit directly into the colander as I pick them. I set the colander in my Tubtrug and spray them with the garden hose, pull out the colander and set it on the bench to drain. Now my produce is ready to take inside and I leave the mess outside. What could be handier than that?

                        • Laundry

                        In our new apartment we have no W/D hookups and are barred from using portables. Going to the laundromat is very expensive and unpleasant, so I've started hand-washing most of my clothes. Two of these 3.5 gallon tub trugs with a colander make for a perfect little "washing/rinsing machine" that I can do a good-sized load in, either in the bathtub or beside the sink. Nested together, these fit underneath my clothes-drying rack in the bathroom, and I just use it as a dirty-clothes hamper. When it's full of clothes, I wash them. Simple, tidy, efficient...and I really like how my clothes turn out. Much gentler on my clothes than the old washer/dryer, better for the environment, and far cheaper. I get the added benefit of a little workout for my arms (or legs, if I stomp), and it's a nice meditation, too.

                          This is a good sized colander. I use it with the 7 & 11 gal. trugs to rinse produce right out of the garden. Especially useful for washing large batches of greens.

                                      For years I've been washing off carrots/beets in my original black trug out on the lawn. most of the veggies spilled out and were still muddy. This strainer is the best. Wonderful to use. Easy to clean
