LEGO washing

My nephew (who is now 20 and between his sophomore and junior years in college) recently gave us his big bin of Legos. After sifting through them to weed out broken bits, junk, etc, the next step was a bath.

The whole dripping mass goes down cellar where I have a screen door panel setup across some boards laid on top of a pair of sawhorses. Add a couple of fans and wait. Drying time is usually 24-48 hours depending on the weather.
