The other day we went ashore with our toiletry kits and our towels for hot showers in the marina bathrooms. I chose a stall, organized my belongings on the hooks, turned on the water so it would be nice and hot, and took off my clothes. It was then that I discovered I’d forgotten to bring my soap and shampoo. Feh. It was a long dinghy ride back to the boat. I really needed a shower. What to do?
I dug around in my kit. No secret stash of motel soap bars. No forgotten travel-size shower gel. Nothing. But wait! What’s this? A packet of Tide laundry detergent for washing your undies in the sink! It will have to do. I squeezed the minuscule amount on my washcloth, and as advertised, it was low-sudsing, which doesn’t really give you that fresh-scrubbed feeling, but I think I came out of the shower stain- and wrinkle-free.
And I’m restocking my kit.
