I received an email from Cleanlife Products asking me to review their line of “No Rinse” products for keeping good hygiene while not in your home. These products are primarily advertised for those who camp and don’t want to tug along a solar shower or constantly haul buckets of water to their campsite. These also work well for the prepper community as they offer a alternative for keeping yourself clean in uncertain times.
I personally tried the shampoo and hopefully from the pictures you can tell the difference between the before and after (this isnt a professional photography job so will have to take my word for it!)
I had purposefully not showered for 5 days and had been shoveling and scraping ice out of the driveway, off the deck etc throughout that whole week as we got hit with a huge snowstorm; my hair was sufficiently nasty from daily wear and sweating from working. I would have gone 7 days but my wife gave me the hint that she wasn’t enjoying my new ‘look’! I went by the simple guidelines given…
- Apply NoRinse in my hair until it was saturated and worked it into a lather
- The Lather brought the oil and dirt to the surface of the hair…
- Towel Dry to remove the dirt and oil
That’s it, pretty simple, easy enough for this Former Marine to figure out! If you actually have a REAALLLLY nasty head of hair you just repeat the process until the end result is to your liking. One rinse was enough for me and my hair felt much less oily and actually quite “fluffy” and had a out of the shower feel to be honest.
The Shampoo runs about $7.98 for a bottle or $7.56 if you purchase a case of 24.
The NoRinse line also includes….
As well as Products for your Pets
I see this as a good product to have in your bug out Bag or just camping accessories as a short term use product and too expensive for say an emergency lasting months or years. Having this in your BOB would work well to keep yourself clean and be a psychological help to those who are in a bad situation. Like Ive mentioned many times never underestimate the need for small things like this, a board game, books, things that take your mind off the present situation for even a few minutes can be of immense help to someones state of mind.
Not to be sexist, but men out there, the women in your lives will appreciate this much more than you ever will and will probably help to build a lot of support and well…love for you if you thought enough ahead of time to take care of something that…in my experience women appreciate very much…clean hair. Also they will probably appreciate you not smelling horrible as well!
