      That's exactly what we did. The washee held his/her hands over the "slop"
      bowl while the sewer (person pouring water) poured the scented water over
      the washee's hands (and into the slop bowl).

      I did have a bottle of instant hand sanitizer available, but no one
      wanted to use it. <shrug>

      It was fun, but I wish I could have gotten pictures. Would have made it
      easier to explain. : )
