Sailor Showers Save Time and Money

In an effort to save time and water I have started taking "Sailor Showers" and have shortened my showers down to 10 minutes and use even less water.

The method for doing this is as follows:
  • Start your water

  • Soak your washcloth, head and body, then turn off the water

  • Get your shampoo and work it into your hair

  • Soap up your washcloth and wash your body

  • When everything is scrubbed well, start the water again and rinse off all the soap and shampoo.

If you are fast enough then you will be done with your shower in about 10 minutes or less and will have used maybe 5 minutes in time of water or less depending on how long it takes you to rinse off.

This method of showering makes not only sense ecologically, but also economically as your water bill is greatly reduced.

  1. are you kidding? I shower in two minutes and have long hair and a long beard and get completely clean. If I drop the soap a couple times or feel indulgent, the shower goes to three, rarely four, minutes.
