Moist Showerette

shower in a bag
  [vote for,

For all of you poor people / homeless people / college students, have you ever been in a situation where you can't use a shower and are very dirty? Open a body-sized version of the moist towelette and be clean in minutes. Use your (vacant) dorm room, a closet or hide behind some trees please. The flammable alcohol mixture has been altered to still sanitize but with less irritation and less potential for an unpleasant fiery death.

       It was going good until the last sentence.

       Followed by a dry towelette.

       Well I like it, and would pay money for it! Great for camping, or you could politely offer one to the "smelly guy" at work.

       Yeah, this is cool, but it would sting like a mother if it got in your eyes. And would it still be lemon scented?   

       "Shower in a bag" brought up a different image in my mind. That idea would be cool. But yours is better.

       Fabulous, I'll take two.

       I hate using the small ones so you'd never get me near the things.

       Great idea. great potential. i wonder how compact can it be...

       //i wonder how compact it can be...//   

       I think that's the only real issue here. Would it be that thin papery material that moist towelettes have, or would it be a fibrous cloth material? Either way, I'd buy two and keep them in my car. [+]

       do you microwave it first? go on!

       In the hospital I was given a very large towelette to clean up after surgery, about 16"x16" and it was made of a synthetic bonded stuff, more sturdy than paper.

       does it make you smell lemony-fresh?
Freefall, Jun 28 2004

       I'll vote for it anyway, but the part of me that feels most in need of a shower in those circumstances is my hair, and I don't see this working for that. Or am I missing something?

       No chance of homeless guys wringing the alcohol stuff out of these things I suppose...?
