Put a little clorox in it.  If they don't take it then,  they aren't hard up for water.

How much clorox in how much water?

I wouldn't put more than you'd put in swimming pool water.  I'd think a capful would be plenty in a five gallon bucket.

I usually just put a splash into 4-5 gallons.   Don't forget, if it is an open container, the chlorine will evaporate out over time,  just like a swimming pool.
