Insight: earlier, people used to wash their hands in basins, throwing the water away after each wash. Now we let water run down from a tap. Which way is more comfortable if the hygiene is not a problem anymore? I decided to explore the basin method and adapt it to modern times, with modern water purification methods inspired by the Hamburg Water Company.
