Personal hygiene is something we all take for granted. Our morning and evening routines are so impressive that you can hardly make time for it all. What with the flossing, brushing, washing, rinsing, tweezing and plucking that goes on in the bathroom, we are just a well manicured bunch. In a collapse those niceties are going to start to fade into the distance. You are going to long for a hot shower and some powerful soap. You will die for clean sheets and a nice bed to sleep in. All of which will be very hard to come by.
This is a great article about the pioneers soap and how they made a quick 2 ingredient soap to clean themselves. It is a very important piece of the puzzle but you are going to have to learn the process first. The good news is, its pretty easy.
