Poked by Hip Mountain Mama to share if you do anything this summer to live a more Eco friendly lifestyle, I got inspired to share my annual ritual: my out-door shower.
Yes it is a bit more cumbersome, and timing is essential, but think of all the electricity saved by not running the water heater all summer long.
Here my setup. Yes very primitive, but oh my the view! The shower bag is celebrating the 3rd anniversary and it takes me less than a third to take a shower! The water is heated up during the afternoon, in case I need it earlier, I will fill it up from the water hose which is in the sun most of the day. The carpet keeps the poison oak down at least for a little while:)
the recycled soap bag functions as a scrubber as well.... for heavier scrubbing the brush hangs handy on a little branch....
