Un Tippy Tap para lavar las manos ... y que se llena de agua lluvia
A Tippy Tap for hand-washing ... and that fills with rainwater
This motor oil bottle was adapted to help us wash out hands, in what is called a Tippy Tap. But, in contrast to all I have seen in the internet, this one is made so that it fills on its own with rainwater off the roof, via another (blue) bottle, cut and jammed in, to serve as a funnel. This white bottle, of Castrol brand, is very good for this, as the connection between the end of the handle and the mouth is very small and easy to plug with a bit of silicon or maybe chewing gum. We tip it over, the handle fills with water, and a little stream of water flows out of a hole (made with a red-hot nail) during 30 seconds, more than enough to calmly wash hands.
