according to a military guy….
Get wet in shower for just 10 seconds max. Turn off and lather up properly for two minutes to get clean. Shower 20 seconds max, to rinse off.
Avoids the scenario where most people expect the water to wash off dirt. Only contact provides sufficient skin oil solubility via mixing and kinetic energy to dislodge dirt. And 99.9% of water molecules never touch the skin .
The Thirty second shower surely saves precious potable water.
pls. be reminded that military pple have short hairs….no wonder they can rinse shampoo easily….installing low flow shower heads can do d trick…they consume less water so you can shower more than 30 seconds!
