My wife and I can go for 6 days (with a 39 gallong holding tank) by taking Navy showers - quickly wet down, lather up, a little more wet if needed to promote lathering, then a quick rinse. I even turn off the shower water when moving the wand from one hand to the other. It's become an art! We just returned from a three week trip and did not feel deprived/dirty during that time. It's surprising how little water is really needed.
Same thing with the dishes - wet everything down, wash thoroughly, then rinse with as little water as possible.
We're practicing for boondocking and extended stays in parks without sewer hookups.
