I am looking for ways to "shower" comfortably without having running water. So I have some water in a vessel and I have a place where I can get that water onto myself (and it is okay to splash), for example on the lawn or in a shower cubicle where the shower itself is defunct.
What methods are there, and what equipment is needed, to get the water onto myself so that is similar to regular showering in terms of:
- washing away dirt and soap effectively,
- being done quickly,
- not needing a lot of water?
I am only looking for portable and momentarily working methods that do not require any setup or special construction before being able to shower.
What I have tried so far is to take some vessel with a handle, like this thing (no idea how it is called)
and pour the water onto my body. By holding it above my head/shoulders and slowly turning the handle I can dose the waterflow. But I find it quite hard to do; I end up wasting much water because I turn the handle too far or simply miss.
I am looking for more fool-proof methods!
