Granted if life crashes as we know it, we don't need to bath everyday. But as it so happens we are in the middle of getting a new bathroom. Today we have a new vanity and cool looking faucet that isn't plumbed, no shower/tub and no running water in the bathroom & I have a doctors appointment this morning.
The Set Up: I used a pan with about 1/2 gallon of heated water. This pan happens to be one I no longer use any more for cooking; but you may use a bucket, dish pan, pretty much anything. Then a towel, 2 wash clothes, soap, a jar of water and a jar for spitting. Remember you want to use enough water to be effective, but being mindful of that fact you more than likely will be hauling this water. Also note that if you are only storing 1 gallon a day for each person (which is the standard recommendation), you are just going to be dirty.
Head: This is my personal preference, I have a separate wash cloth for my face. Since you may not want to be using a new cloth everyday. Basically you start at the top and work your way down.
Pits: This is where I start using the second cloth.
Bits: Clean this well. 'Nuff said.
Feet: Since my feet are the dirtiest part, I save that for last.
Preps: In our prep storage we also have a Coleman 5-gallon Solar Shower.
Gearing for short-term and long term preparedness, I just wanted to have the option of a shower still. Ann from our community had a good suggestion of storing baby wipes, which is a fairly inexpensive item to have on hand.
Pretty easy to do. I had a canning jar with water, a canning jar to spit in (saved that clean water).
After you have got cleaned up what you have is grey water. Don't just throw it away- there are many uses for greywater.
What I do here is simply share our preparedness journey. If you liked this post we would love it if you joined our Perky Prepping Gramma community on Facebook, comment or share. Plus it would just make my day.
Items I have used this week: First is the Coleman Solar Shower we have in our preps. I am currently reading "Lucifer's Hammer" again, I am dehydrating eggs shells today and sealing up some snacks in canning jars.
