I've made a decision for non-action during this new Lockdown - and it is - I'm not going to shower every day! Well, especially whilst its cold and wet and I can't even work in the garden - can only go out for my daily exercise when I will be well wrapped up. I shall of course, being doing the strip down wash that we used to have daily when we were children (face, hands, neck, knees & naughty bits as we used to call it) - but as I live on my own, there's no-one else to impress/smell good for - only me. And now that my hair is long, rather than short and requiring a daily shampoo, I intend to shower every 3-4 days! This way, I'm also saving water - and thereby the planet :-D Anybody else feel like joining me? We could call ourselves The Great Unshowered!
Isn't it quicker just to jump in the shower than have a 'strip wash'? How does that work anyway? I can't imagine being able to stand at the sink and wash all the necessaries without getting water all over the floor!
@Ibizafan @TBagpuss How exactly does this strip washing work? I want to try it. I assume I fill the sink with hot soapy water and use a washcloth. Do I then have to refill with clean water to rinse myself? Do you do everywhere or just certain ‘bits’?
