A 2.5 gallon solar shower heats well in the sun and does a great job outside for shampoos....or suspend from a tree in a secluded place and have at it.

I bought some of these at WalMart last year, prior to a boondocking trip in New Mexico, and they provide an excellent bath, needing just a small amount of fresh water for a quick rinse.

Comfort Bath Heavyweight Cleansing Cloths

I couldn't get a picture to copy, but they come in packs of 8, are very wet, and then eliminate the need for water to rinse a washcloth, as you just throw them away.

You get them in the area where they sell Depends, and other such items.

Under $4.

Looks like it. Thanks.

The "Heavyweight" is important, as I bought another of these that was just like a large wet one...not at all the same product.

All good suggestions. With my Oxygenics shower head I use less than a gallon.

Another big saver is to use "Camping Soap" which rinses very easily and can be used for you, hair, dishes anything. It saves a lot of rinse water.

This is what we use.



Works good as long as the campground isn't too busy.



But usually we set up the tent behind the trailer and hang the solar bag inside, here it is with the Lil Loafer.



Of course now with the Argosy with a hot water tank I have a feeling the Mrs. is going to be more prone to showering inside.

That's a great, low-fuss, simple solution...thanks for sharing that.

Just tried out my new shower tent. Finally using that outdoor shower. Works great. Just need to put a showerhead in with a cutoff valve. Should be a great way to extend the capacity of the grey tank.
