I was wondering what you guys use for a bathtub? I’ve read a bit about not using your actual bath or sink cuz if contamination, although many people do. They only alternative I’ve seen is using plastic bins, but I am wondering if that is safe? I’ve read that modern plastics are safe for food, etc... but just wanted to be sure. If not, are there other tubs that are safe/recommended.

I use the kitchen sink when bathing - but it's not very often - only when he has run thru his poop and he stinks- I put a dish towel in the bottom of the sink and when done it's washed out w/ Clorox cleanup dish towel goes to wash

I use a plastic bin, but I scrubbed out all of the tiny plastic dust well in advance before she arrived.

I also use a plastic bin, washed out well before using... no reason you can't use your sink or tub, as long as you give it a good cleaning with diluted bleach afterwards.
