Washing dishes in the developing world

I'm interested in dishwashing practices in the developing world. If you were one of roughly the half of the people in the world without running water in your home
, how might you wash your dishes? What kind of set up would you have? Are sinks common even if you collect water from a public well or water truck
? Or would you have a washbasin/plastic tub? On a countertop, table, or floor? Cloth or tarp outside? Would you use non-potable water to do the washing up? Save the graywater for next time or for other cleaning tasks?
Answers will probably be broad and varied, and that's fine. References, video and photos would all be great. I can imagine all sorts of practices, but I need some verification.
