Body Scrubber

Portable cleaner that washes, rinses and dries in each skin sweep

This product is a similar, smaller version of a motorized hard floor cleaner. The size of a small hairdryer, the body scrubber would be indispensable when camping or on a long flight.

The battery-driven scrubber has a flexible squeegee-edged mouthpiece that adjusts to convex and concave surfaces. As you sweep the scrubber along the skin, a soap solution is applied, a soft, cotton, rotating brush wipes the surface, rinse water is added and the skin is vacuumed dry. There is a small compartment for liquid soap, and one-cup bladders for fresh and dirty water. A one-minute wipe down with the body scrubber leaves you clean, rubbed and fresh smelling.

       So this would be like a cross betwen the floor cleaner, and some kind of electric toothbrush arrangement (but for the whole body, not for teeth)?

       Not advisable for teeth or hair.

       I can't help thinking that if you press the squeegee bit onto yourself hard enough to prevent leakage of liquid, you're going to lose most of your body hair as a function of the friction. Cleaning the unit then involves the removal of a large, soggy hairball, soaked in soapy water.   

       So you'd end up very clean, but also in great pain. Hmmm. No, unless someone can propose a flexible, efficient seal that won't result in the user being left completely depilated, I shall withhold my croissant, even though I think the idea in general is not without merit.

       A box of wet wipes and a box of tissues pretty much do this job. But I like personal gadgetry so croissant

       8 7: Try wiping water off your arm with the edge of the other hand; not any rougher than the moist inside curve of a croissant. Now add some suction and it might just work.

       Because a doodad-whatchamacallit-thingamagig that goes "zvvvvvvvvvvvv", tickles you and you hold with a handle, is so much more fun.   

       angry veggie: Another reason for doohinkies is to have more time for activities and sports.

       If you were sweaty enough, you wouldn't need the water reservoir ....

       2 birds/1 stone.

       [bliss] who? where?   

       [FJ] pint taken, I admit that some things are good to have just because they are funky and fun. I guess it'd be an interesting gift for camping types (I like angry veggie btw).
