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.

Click for larger imageMy Lego washing technique involves a big soup pot and a metal colander in the sink. The Legos go in the pot along with a squirt of dish detergent and a lot of hot water. Swish-swish-swish and into the colander for a rinse.

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.
