This tip comes by email from one of our listeners named Wendy… who came across an inexpensive little gadget that can help with staying clean and showering on camping trips and hikes.
It’s called the Simple Shower and it is a specially designed portable shower that attaches to just about any one- or two-liter bottle to convert them into a shower.
That’s right: It turns an empty water or soft drink bottle into a makeshift shower.
Here’s how it works:
Simply fill a plastic the bottle with warm water, or leave the bottle in the sun to heat up, and attach the Simple Shower device in the open neck of the bottle for a quick and easy shower.
It’s ideal for backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, camping, emergencies, cleaning pets, washing utensils, at the beach, and anywhere else a steady stream flow shower can be used.
A two-liter bottle can hold pretty close to a half gallon of water and the Simple Shower attachment pours it out in a nice stream, not all at once
And if you have a couple of them, you could even wash your hair.
It costs just $12.99 on Amazon.
