I’ve got several camping solar shower bags for solar heating of shower water, but also a number of black plastic totes that can be re-purposed for the same need. That said, since I’ve temporarily relocated I don’t have as much access to water. For the short term living situation, I’d prioritize stored water for drinking, and defer to use of wipes or wet towel methods for personal cleanliness.
I do also have a fine collection of hotel soaps and shampoos to offer any smelly neighbors.
Same here Mike/Everybody…
I have 2 solar bags to hang(5 gal ea.) and a porta-shield(bathroom/shower screen).
I don’t have any creeks in Urbania, but I do live in SoCal…Land of the infinite swimming pools and ocean front properties….Moms house is about 1 mile from me on the other side of a large park with 2 man made lakes.(got solar over there too..36 panels/2 inverters)
Part of my preps is checking out the surrounding area on Google Earth looking for water sources by air now Vs. later….There’s about 3 houses for every 10 that DONT have pools here in my immediate area. That water will go bad but I have treatment and filters for about 50,000 gallons worth….Think I’m good short of nukes.
My water preps/storage on hand, access to more with filters, amount of swimming pools in the area, etc. etc., will not be an issue now that I’m prepped and planned….If I am running into an issue with hygiene from lack of usable water, there’s just going to be far too many more serious issues going on than hygiene at that point…..Looking too clean in an urban environment would be another giveaway stating “I have better supplies than you do, please attack me”.
It’d be the same thing as eating like a king while everyone around you starves…Dirty hair and a little hollowness to the cheeks will be better than armed security in Urbania with the nosey neighbors…..Strategic rationing for appearance sake mind you….
