5 gallon pails are so versatile to take to a camp site. But we have not yet elaborated how they could be a practical use during camping time. This time we are going to discuss how the 5 gallon bucket is great as a portable toilet, especially when we camp at places with no access to plumbing.
What we need:
- 5 gallon pail
- 2 pieces of boards
- Garbage bags
How to make the portable toilet:
- Cover the inside of the bucket with a garbage bag and make sure the end of the bag goes over the top of the pail so that it can be fastened with the bucket lid.
- Put the mulch about half of the pail. This will help absorb urine and to cover up the smell.
- Put the two boards on top of the 5 gallon pail for us to sit on. Voila, your emergency toilet is done!
Note: every time you go to the toilet cover with more mulch. The concept is really like the cat litter system. The more you cover it, the less smell you’ve got.
