    I made this today to make cleaning rat tubs easy.
    Maybe someone will like the idea...
    The stand is so I can stand back and hose the tubs out, I hated having to hold them at the same time. lol

    I haven't cleaned out my big tubs yet, but I have a 9-tub rack of small birthing tubs, which I have been using for about 9 months now and haven't had to hose them down at all. I just empty them and give each tub a wipe out with an alky wipe. They're clear tubs too, so you can see every little speck of grossness on them.

    Cheers mate, I toyed with the idea of a bottle washer type thing by using a tap around sprinkler on a stand and sitting the tub over the top. I still might make one like that and see which one I like best.

    It has nothing to do with being lazy, I just hated having the dirty water sprayed back in my face.
    I got an eye infection a few weeks ago after water from a tub got in my eye. ( unlucky and a one off I'm sure but.. )
