I don’t know if it’s the weather or what… but it’s confession time once again here at Mali Mish. You see, I have a secret to share. About our bathroom situation. Actually, not just one secret, but two. I’ll start with number two. Ahmmm.
I don’t let Dan go ‘number two’ in the Airstream. He gets banished to the public restrooms. I just don’t think that little fan in the bathroom is strong enough for what Dan would be cooking in there. And if that makes me a mean wife then a mean wife I am! But you can’t call me a mean blogger. I spared you from posting pictures. You’re very welcome.
Alright, now that THAT is out of the way, on to confession numero uno. The shower. We hadn’t used the shower for it’s intended reason up until our most recent trip. Up until that point, the shower’s main use was for storage.
But over New Year’s, we did it! We took a shower in our Airstream (you can find the best electric showers here and more details at www.bathroomcity.co.uk). And it was FANTASTIC!! No more worrying about what gross germs the previous person had. No more cursing that all the hot water is gone. No more uncomfortably strong streams of water making Ava grab onto to me for dear life. No more!!
But we did run into two teensy weensy problems. See this plastic thingy called a shower pan (https://barterdesign.co/best-shower-pan/) that is supposed to keep the water in the shower. Well, it doesn’t stay put near the right hand side of the shower door and therefore does not keep the water in the shower. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
And our second teensy weensy problem? Even though I try my very best to conserve water when not rinsing off soap or shampoo, I also seem to fill our gray water tank a quarter of the way each time I take a shower with Ava. If I do the math, a quarter of our 37-gallon gray tank is 9.25 gallons. That seems like a lot to me too. 🙁 Things are going to have to change. And quick. We are off to boondock for an entire weekend very soon and I better learn how to conserve… or learn to stay dirty.
Any suggestions on our shower situation would be super!
