No matter if you are a die-hard prepper, camping aficionado or a homesteader you love a nice warm shower.
In all three of these situations, you may not have access to the water heater and all the benefits of that nice warm shower. We are spoiled by our levels of personal hygiene. However, we are also very healthy because of our personal hygiene. This is the best mode of naturally deterring illness.
A shower is also a morale booster. You will feel a lot better after rushing water over the top of you for a bit and getting the muck off your body.
What are your options when it comes to showers in an off-grid scenario? Well, you can find a bunch of different choices of an off-grid shower on the internet.
A Black Bag
Black bags are the only way to fly when it comes to a shower bag. The reason, of course, is the heat-absorbing properties. Place that black bag in direct sunlight to assure the water inside gets nice and hot. A warm shower is way better than a cold one.
If you are going to go the distance to invest in a shower bag, you might as well be enjoying a nice warm shower. That is an important part, right? Warm water and soap can go a long way.
The other big consideration is how much water do you want that bag to hold. Most people are going to answer, “All the water!.” You have to know that you are not going to be able to emulate the home shower. That is not what a shower bag can do.
However, if you get a nice big bag you will at least be able to maximize the water volume.
Maybe a shower bag is not a priority for you but if it is, well, you might as well do your research and get something that works.
