[RC] bathing - Karla Watson

I just found a cool thing in the baby aisle of the grocery store. They are portable, disposable washcloths. They are dry and you get them wet and they have soap in them. The cool thing is you can THROW them away. No more wet wash cloths hanging in your camper to dry. Wet wipes are also a great thing to have around. Great for a quick clean up on face and neck and for adding to your vet box for outchecks. Feels really great and cools you off on a hot day to wash the grime off your face and neck at vet checks.

In our trailer, I have installed an oval "Muck Bucket".  I found it
somewhere and recognized its possibilities as a bath tub.  One can stand in
it and take a sponge bath.  I can either kneel in it and take a sponge bath,
or if I pull my knees up under my chin :-)), I can take a sitz bath.  We
just heat a kettle full of water to boiling, add cool water to the correct
temp, and bathe away!  It's not luxury, but it works.  Anything is almost
luxury after one has done high Sierra backpacking for many years, and the
only bath you get is in 40 degree (or colder) water.  And we don't spill
water on the floor...just drag it outside and empty on the ground.

Common sense should also be a part of the decision making process. If you
see someone who doesn't have any, hand them your tool box.
