Six days. Myself. Biggest waste of water is waiting for warm water prior to navy shower. If I was willing to do cold showers or somehow collect the warmup water I'd do better. If on tank water and using water like being hooked up I can go thru tank in two or three days.

We save the warm-up water in a small pail and then use it to flush the toilet during the day. Works quite well without too much hassle.

We can easily do a week with the holding tanks we have. We have to add fresh water though, usually in gallon or three gallon jugs. Our showers a short but we never use campground showers or toilets. Just two of us.

grey water limiting factor, agree with above posts, dishes and showers are the big users.
Dishes, somewhat agree with paper plates but also do not fill sink with water and only having soap diluted in sqirt bottle or small bowl, spray on sponge soapy scrubbing and rinse.
Shower navy type, wet body while water is warming wet those parts not as sensitive to cold, turn off, soap, rinse.
Some places allow dishwater on ground, some don't, problem with dishwater on ground is food particles attracts critters you might not want in your campsite.
Remember soapy water put into holding tank will ferment, it is not the same after a couple of day holding.

Up to two weeks, easy, for just the two of us...but we don't use the shower (always use campground facilities -- the last thing we need is another bathtub/shower to clean). We use proper cutlery but disposable cups and dishes so only need to wash dishes once per day. (Hey, we're camping -- the goal is to spend the least amount of time in the trailer!)

Hi, great idea, but two wouldn't fit in our shower.

We've done 5 days, like Bob, at the Balloon Fiesta. Dishwater gets put into black tank to save capacity in grey tank. We wash down (and up) at the bathroom sink and don't use the shower. I don't know how much water we used, though we brought 5 extra gallons we never used. We probably could have taken a few showers.

Bob, it's called a sponge bath. We were quite clean as if anyone cared with all the balloons to look at.

Actually, when I first saw the thread's title, I thought it was about pregnant women.
