    Does Not Easily Fit 31/2 Gallon Tubtrug

    By Neighborhood Farm Girl

    from Brewster, MA

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

          It's great for gathering and rinsing vegetables. When they say that it fits snuggly in the 31/2 gallon tub, it means you have for force it into the tub in a way that is not useful. It would be much better combination if you could use it easily with the tub.

                      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.
