German term or phrase: Kuechenspuele
From a patent specification. I think it's to do with washing kitchen floors, but not a cleaning fluid. From the context, is is made of metal and is some sort of bucket incorporating smaller vessels. I think it may be the sort of bucket used for rinsing out mops, but I would like this confirmed or refuted and in any case I do not know the English word for such a bucket.

[kitchen] sink unit or sink cabinet
Explanation:
A Spüle is more than just the kitchen sink, it is an entire cabinet with an integrated sink (one or two basins) and a place for draining the dishes.

It's a unit like a bathroom vanity (popular here in the US).

Explanation:
without any further context:
Kuechenspuele=kitchen sink (unit)
The extra inserts into a kitchen sink
are NOT called "vessels." You are not
talking about a chemical lab or something technical, I hope. The kitchen sink is usually comprised of "basins" and baskets, drain baskets, which can
be incorporated or are inset, inserted,
placed in, etc. The buckets are usually
used for washing, rinsing vegetables or
lettuce.

Good luck,
Lis
