Showering in the campervan

For the past few days, I've spent most of my time in my campervan. I've slowly beginning to accept it as a living space, instead of a locomotive device. It has been an enjoyable experience.

Learnt another tip today - the Navy shower. This technique teaches you how to shower with very little water. Fresh water is at a premium in Naval ships and sailors have to go to great lengths to minimise the use of fresh water. The Navy shower was born out of this necessity.

  1. Turn on the water
  2. Wet the body
  3. Turn off the water
  4. Soap up and scrub body
  5. Turn the water back on and rinse off the soap

    With a handheld sprayer, I guess you can just spray yourself all over, soap, spray again  a couple of times and wipe off with a towel.  This should use up less than half a litre of water. Sounds good in theory !
