Emergency Cleaning Bucket

Every house hold should have an emergency cleaning bucket for when a disaster strikes. It is easy to put together and most items can be purchased at a 99 Cent Store, Dollar Tree, Dollar General or discount store.

You will need the following:

1) 5 gallon bucket with a lid (Home Depot, WalMart, etc. carry these)
2) Bottle of dish soap
3) Laundry soap (small-medium size)
4) Bottle of disinfectant cleaner
5) 2 clothes lines/rope (100 feet)
6) Clothes pens
7) 7 dry sponges
8) 24 large sturdy 30 gallon plastic black trash bags (all rolled up together)
9) 18 clean reusable towels/wipes (blue ones)
10) Can of spray air fresher
11) Insect repellent spray
12) One pair of heavy work gloves
13) 5 scrubber pads
14) Cleaning brush
15) 5 dust masks
16) 2 pair of latex rubber gloves


1) Old fashioned clothes wash board (I have seen them at ACE Hardware. Other hardware stores may carry them.)

2) Old fashioned round metal tub or heavy plastic bin or tub (I have found the round metal tubs at estate and garage sales. You can also find them online and at some hardware stores.)

3) Mobile Washer (emergencyessentials.com for $14.95)--helps agitate the clothes in the metal or plastic tub.)
