Bring your own shower to the beach
A friend of mine passed on a great idea that I just had to share with readers here as spring break approaches and we start heading back to the beach. Since parking closest to the showers and bathrooms are usually packed, she solved this by bringing her own shower hose with her.
Go to Home Depot and get one of those sprayers (usually for pesticides) that you have to pump to pressurize. Fill it with water and you have an instant shower! This is also good for getting the rest of the sand off your feet before you get in the car.
Just make sure you mark the sprayer WATER ONLY in big letters so your hubby doesn't put something toxic in it. Leave it in the car or you could even bring it with you to the beach if you are one of those types that gets itchy from saltwater. Plop it down on the sand next to you and spray off after each dip.
I just love clever moms like that.
