The Emergency Water Chest: Staying Clean When Disaster Strikes
A portable sanitizing solution for personal use during water-scarce emergencies.

Designed as a kind of Swiss Army Knife-solution to staying clean in times of disaster, the Emergency Water Chest is a multi-functional kit for home use with these components: a three-level washing container, drawers for personal hygiene, essential medical supplies, and emergency preparedness information. It is portable with a detachable handle and doubles as a stool. During periods of water scarcity, people may be forced to meet essential needs on their own. The Emergency Water Chest combines flexibility with ease of use and is compact and self-contained — easy to store at home and ready when needed.
