I recently found a company, Cleanlife Products that produces a No Rinse Shampoo cap, Shampoo, Body Wash, Bathing wipes and Instant Foam non-alcohol Hand Sanitizer. These products are made for hikers, camper, truckers, and military men. The products claim, that absolutely no rinsing is required after use.
These products would have really come in handy when my 91 year old mother-in-law twisted her leg and had to have a caregiver to bath her and wash her hair. But this product arrived a week too late. So I am the tester for this product.
I used the No Rinse Shampoo; directions are to apply to hair until completely wet. Massage to a lather, then dry thoroughly with soft absorbent towel. I applied as instructed and I really didn’t get lather, but my hair got very wet, then I massaged shampoo into the roots and then comb it through my hair. I then dried my hair and it felt heavier than when using regular shampoo and because I color my hair, it was hard to comb without applying a conditioner. I think that this one product would be better for men or women with very short hair. The shampoo cap would be better to use on shut-ins, put it on the head and massage their hair through the cap. The regular shampoo is cold when applied, so the older shut-ins would appreciate the warmth of the cap.
The Body Wash I used on a wash cloth first then washed. Directions are similar as before, apply wash to body directly or use a wash cloth. Massage to lather and dry with soft towel. It has a nice scent and I did feel fresher. I also used the bathing wipes, which I prefer to the body wash. They are easier to use and then you just dispose of the towel.
Overall, I think this is a good product and would come in very handy for hunters or people that go to places that may not have a lot of water. For older people that have had stokes or an illness which has left them incapable of bending or walking to take showers.
The No Rinse Shampoo, shower caps, body wash and bathing wipes would be very handy if you have anyone that is bedridden, or for cleaning someone up in a medical emergency in a situation in which you are short of good water.
