For those that cook on your truck, how do you keep your dishes clean?? With the winter weather coming I'm finding it hard to want to walk into truck atop just to wash my plate or cookware. This has been a topic on my mind for awhile.. I thought of getting g a small 2 gal bucket but I'd have to keep bulk gals of water on board..

I've got silverware, cups and soon a frying pan..

Just curious..

Take it with you in the shower. Nice hot water from the sink and a powerful spray from the shower head.

That's what I've been doing.. I try and do a quick rinse out afterwards but that seams to be the easiestbthing is showering with it..

Why not use paper plates or those disposable cardboard baskets that you can buy in a 500-pack box at Sam's. They don't take up a lot of space as they stack so tightly ... ...just curious ...

I think it'd be better to wash them with hot water, this could save your water because oil and leftover would be easily washed off in hot water. And after put some cleaner onto the dishes or other kitchen ware, I also use silicone sponges to scrub them, and then wash them.

I understand the appeal of the cookware, I really do, but for me the time and hassle is not worth it. I have a Hot Logic and a toaster/convection oven. Between these two appliances, there are a great many things that can be prepared and use only inexpensive, disposable stuff.

If you really must use cookware that requires washing, the shower is the way to go. No one wants us washing dishes in public sinks and trying to do it ourselves requires too many supplies and facilities.

For the most part, I want to spend my time either driving or relaxing....definitely not cleaning
