We like Dr. Bronner's liquid soap in our house. I buy the gallon size and then mix it 1 part soap to 2 parts water and it goes a long way. I can dilute it alot more if need be and for easy rinsing. It says on the bottle that you can wash your hair with it too. I just picked up 2 gallons I had ordered by phone. Since I had the store order it I didn't have to pay for s&h as I would if I had ordered it myself online.  :>}

Go the number 3 - less hair maintenence whilst still leaving a little protection for the scalp.

Whilst this might sound a little odd - I stopped using soap a couple of years back (including soap alternatives). I opt for hot water and a very stiff sponge and a very good scrub.

Two weeks after I gave the soap away my skin felt better than it had in years - my acne was gone and the awful summer body odor was no more. I still use shampoo for the hair.

When you are without much water - The "Mandi" (Bucket shower) is probably the best wey to go - however lathering up requires a great deal  more water to get rid of the soap.

A bathing tip if you are near salt water from a cruising sailor.  

Bar soap gums up in salt water.  Cheap shampoo works real well.  If you are forced to do a saltwater bath, go with the shampoo.

As I've stated before.... IF pandemic hits.... I'm going to shave my head.  I also have long hair, but not as long as yours meewee, and I decided a few months back that it would just be sooooo much easier that way.

You would be surprised as to how good you would feel just doing a ptaf bath! Peri/torso/armpit/foot bath! was sometimes forced to do that with just a wet wash cloth and 1/2  quart of water, to divide between teeth and that. it can be quite effective! And you can go as long as a week without washing your hair...but reccomend that hair be cut very short just for that purpose!. As for Mee I will have to cut my hair (Which is down past my hips to do it...but hey...it will grow back!. I suggest that you invest in some good barber sissors purchased at your local beauty supply, they will be worth their weight in gold! Trust me on that one! And yes baby powder, corn starch, or dry shampoo does work...just more effictive on short hair as it takes less to use!

They have a new scott towel out and they are half the size of the ones you pull off a normal roll and not a bad price..I found this out when I bought the wrong kind..but glad I found them...

I have 36 tubes of toothepaste and several spare tooth brushes..I have also stocked up on soap about 50 bars so far..tons of laundry detergent..and baby powder..I really have to get some shampoo...I have some but not as much as what i would like...

I better stock up on some more baby wipes.  I can't rely on rain water here in OK, we have had rain once (not a measureable amount even)  in the past 100+ days.

I have gotten 5 cases of babywipes.  I have a 17 month old little girl and we use them for everything.  Babywipes will store better then TP and they always stay wet if they are closed up good.  So, I could use them to wash off, wash hands, clean up spills and even in the bathroom.

I have used the baby powder trick but it only last for a day or so then you really neded to wash your hair.   I plan on a baby wipes daily plus rain water for washing my hair.  I will use a large  tarpe for water collection over a large garbage can

I thought I was the only one with the shaving of the head idea!  I too have long hair and as much as I love it, I will shave my head as bald as a cue ball! I will do whatever it takes to beat Bird Flu, ( and Cooties!)

Ooh Rah Master Chief!

While I certainly don't look like Demi I did my stint in a "man's world".  It takes steel in the back bone, clear vision, & the determination to do what has to be done.  The very things I plan to use to tackle AI with no intent to fail.

I totally agree! I can't imagine not showing for days at a time. I may have to look into getting a camping shower.  Baby wipes are a good idea too.

Millie....the baby powder does work.   My husband was in traction in the hospital for three months years ago and that is what I used on his hair. 

I bought a large bag of baby wipes today....they will come in handy if you can't bathe.  I saw a camping shower at KMart that I am considering buying.  I think it was around $16.00.  I could never go days without showing.  UGH!
