So I was struggling to wash some of my larger pots in the sink. Even the utility sink was a challenge. Then it came to me ... rinse them in the shower! Eureka that works great and is very fast.

Now I just need to get a garbage disposal installed in the shower ...

Wife isn't allways happy when the jetstreams in bath spray a yeast residu ..

Get yourself a hand-held showerhead, and it will be even easier. And your wife will thank you.

This is what I do. My back porch is perfect as you can hose everything off before and after brewing/cleaning.

Don't forget when you drain your oxi water into the tub, leave the tubs drain closed and let it sit for a couple hours. It does a nice job cleaning the tub too.
