When it comes to a SHTF situation, hygiene is still just as important as it was before in your everyday life. It is vital to maintaining good health. In this article we are going to keep it short and simple and talk about ways you can still remain clean when SHTF, hope this helps!
Of course taking a bath/shower is the preferred method. However if all power is lost that means no hot water even if the water is still flowing. If you have a fire it’s easy to heat up the water to just pour into the bathtub. Or as I and many others have done just take a quick/cold shower.
If water service has been lost other ways of bathing must be found. One thing to keep in mind is that the water you see running in that creek or river isn’t good for drinking without decontaminating first. But as long as it’s clear it’s probably perfectly good for bathing.
There are other methods available also. A couple are listed below to give you an idea of what you can find to help you stay as healthy as possible.
