I was reading 'The Complete Tightwad Gazette' and it says you can reuse 4L(1 gallon) milk jugs,washed of course...paint them black and fill with water set out in the sunshine and you'll have hot water to use when camping. Just thought I'd share what I read...going to definately try this Summer. Janine

Just put a black trash bag over the jugs and you can skip wasting paint on disposable jugs.

If you need warm water to wash the dog or rinse off the kids' feet or take a shower, buy a new, never used black weed sprayer and fill that with water and set it in the sun. Don't use for potable water though.

If we have power while camping or we're too lazy to light the water heater, we just use a two-gallon electric coffee urn I got at SA for eighty cents.
