Hand washing sink
There was a link on here not that long ago with a plastic portable hand washing sink. It has basins that folded down from the sides. Any help locating the thread of link would be great. Thanks

This doesn't sound like what you described, but it does look promising.

Whoops, that's across the pond. Shipping would be killer.

Heated water on top of firebox). Kept a seperate dish pan of soap water and hand sanitizer next to it.

Funny you should say that. We just returned from a local farmers market and all they had ( selling cooking sausages) was a bowl of water, hand sanatiser and parer towels. It was the same at another stall where they were selling cheese and pastery.

Looks like I didn't need to spend the money this weekend on that unit afterall. Oh well It will be very useful anyway.

I picked up one of these from ebay..

It looks to be heated but you may want to ask first.

This is the new one by Teal. It's heated and at a cheap starting price but the tap may not be what you want.. _Restaurant_RL?hash=item4146da03e0&_trksid=p3286.c 0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1%7C72%3A1 688%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

Hi thanks for taking your time to veiw my auction.
Due to me no longer working i do not have the need to keep this for my van its still in the box.
The NEW Slim-line HANDEMAN® is entirely self-contained and 25% smaller than any other.
It has all the excellent features of the TEALwash including finger tip operated tap giving a hot wash under running water and fully automatic operation with an ideal water temperature.
HANDEMAN® HM12 & HM24 designed specifically for Commercial Motor Vehicles.
HANDEMAN® needs NO separate waste container and NO waste water tubing.
It's unique Waste-Safe retains all the dirty water which can be emptied when the fresh water is replenished.
Even so your HANDEMAN® will give up to TEN generous 12 second hot washes per filling. you need a specialist to install HANDEMAN®?
NO. You can fit it inside or outside a vehicle on any convenient vertical surface. We supply a complete fitting kit and clear instructions. All you need to find is enough 4mm (35amp) cable to connect to the positive and negative battery terminals through the fuse holder supplied. No switch either, HANDEMAN® is fully automatic.

Will it drain the battery?
No, HANDEMAN® is battery safe. It senses the voltage a the vehicle battery and only starts heating when the engine is running and there’s enough power to spare at the alternator.

By the way, HANDEMAN® also complies with European EMC Automobile Directive 95/54/EC.

What if the water tank is empty?
In the unlikely event of a completely empty water tank, HANDEMAN® has a unique ‘no water’ safety feature that cuts the heater and flashes a red warning light. Simply fill up again and reset and you’re back in business.

What about weight- an important consideration with operators?
HANDEMAN® only weighs 5.3 Kg even when full- more than 30% lighter than any other model. there a HANDEMAN® that can be used from a cigar lighter?
Yes.The HANDEMAN® HMP12 is fitted with a coiled cable and the correct plug for the cigar lighter socket. It is ideal for 'in cab' use or for a private car or estate. It comes with a carrying handle and can stand on a flat surface. Heating time is longer than other models (45 minutes approx.).
