I did a large batch of screen prints recently and did not have access to running water in my garage. So I filled a large rubbermaid tub about 4" full of water. When I was done printing that screen, I tossed the screen in the tub and quickly cleaned the screen with a tooth brush and big cup*. It's worked superbly, saved water and mess. I'd definitely use this trick again.

*Big cup was for pouring water over the larger screens that didn't quite fully submerge into the tub.

Also-- a couple of time I just threw the screen in the tub and pushed it under the water and left it there until I could clean it out. But do that at your own risk.. paint is persnickety.
