If you’re ready to go off the grid but you don’t want to smell, you might have some questions. Like “How do you shower when boondocking?” You know you have to be careful so you don’t fill up your gray tank but what do you do?
If you must have a “real” shower then you need to have a shower head that allows you to turn the water on and off. Many RVs have those and you only have the water running when you need it.
Many boondockers don’t take a “real” shower at all. You can use body wipes to get all the grossness off you. I know that might sound gross and the thought of not having a proper shower can be icky. However, if you’re out in nature and your gray tank can’t handle showers, this might be the best option for you.
There are some adult size “napkins” you can use to wipe off and you can keep from filling up your gray water tank.
A good option when you're on the go without a shower.
- Good size
- Not as thick as advertised
- A little difficult to get out of the small hole
Another type of wipe you might not have heard of are Venture Wipes. It’s basically branded for the adventurer, they’re biodegrablable and are supposed to be pretty easy on your skin.
These large body wipes can help you out when you're boondocking and want to stay clean.
- Contains aloe, vitamin E & tea tree oil
- No strong fragrance
However, there are some people that have some pretty cool ways to shower. For instance, you can check out On the Trail with Bart’s video about how they shower when boondocking.
