Step 1: Cut the hose off Cut the hose from the bottle, leaving a 1-inch section coming out of the bottle. Then cut the hose off of the sprayer, again leaving a 1-inch section of hose attached to the sprayer. Step 2: Replace the hose with tubing Slide one end of the medical tubing over the section of hose you left on the sprayer and secure it by tightly wrapping thick rubber bands around it. Then fit the other end of the tubing over the section of hose connected to the bottle, again securing with rubber bands. Tip You can also tape or epoxy the tubing in place, but you won't be able to disassemble your shower for storage. Step 3: Check for leaks Fill the bottle with water, pump the spray bottle, and squeeze the trigger on the sprayer. If there are any leaks, remove the tubing and reattach it with tighter rubber bands. Step 4: Heat your water Heat your shower water by double-bagging it in black plastic bags, squeezing the air out before sealing the bags, and letting it sit in the sun for a few hours. Step 5: Make an enclosure Build a shower enclosure by throwing a length of rope over a tree limb, and attaching the handle of an umbrella to the rope. Open the umbrella and hang a shower curtain along the umbrella's ribs. Tip You can cut a hole in the umbrella, fit the sprayer through the hole, and lock the trigger down for a hands-free shower. Step 6: Be clean while you camp Enjoy your camping excursion while maintaining a modicum of personal hygiene. Go for a hike smelling fresh as a daisy. Did You Know? According to a national survey, 33.1 million Americans engaged in primitive camping in 2004.
