Showering at festivals: What you need to know
Most people are quite happy to go for 4-5 days without showering at a festival, opting for a basic flannel or wet wipe wash at the tent instead. Wet wipes are not biodegradable and really bad for the environment. Washing with warm water is more refreshing too, so some festival goers will make use of the limited shower facilities or bring their own portable festival shower kits for a bit of extra luxury!
You may also want a tent to actually shower in for some privacy! And to make sure you don’t soak all of your campsite neighbours too!
Most portable camping showers need to be hung up as mentioned below, or if you are just not a big fan of showering in the open? Then pick up a shower tent! providing privacy and the envy of everyone else around you.
The Risepro festival shower has the ease of use and comfort features to stand out from the rest in its price range and above, while still being one of the cheaper options. Its robust build will keep it going festival after festival.
Cheap and cheerful as the saying goes! This design has been a staple shower for festival goers since hygiene became more of a concern compared to festival years gone by…. Thankfully!
We love this foot pump and hand held trigger system. This updated way of providing a great flow without needing electricity is exactly what any festival goer needs, removing the need to hang the bag you just fill it, pump it, warm it and go. No need to fumble about to get a quick wash before/after the day’s excitement, you have full control over how much and where the water goes.
A clever and practical way of showering at a festival, you just drop the pump into any standing container of water and away you go! Being rechargeable means no worries about missing out on a quick refresh. Although you will need to have a container of water to go with it, we recommend this collapsible bucket tha’s strong and easy to transport with the attached handles.
If you want luxury and ease of use look no further. The Tadomoe Camping Shower has the LED display unit containing a pump, psi gauge that automatically keeps the pressure at 6psi making sure that until the water runs out you will have the same flow rate from start to finish.
The handy LED flashlight will help in case you find yourself showering in the dark for some reason. When your shower is done the shower packs away with all the bits into a convenient carry bag.
Care for your shower after the festival!
Camping showers can be useful after the festival is over, they can be used to help clean other things, like your car to the muddy dog. But you have to keep it in good condition. Most camping equipment is not ‘single use’ so it can be used again and again.
Ss soon as you are home, hang your shower on a washing line or on a bathroom rail, open it up fully to help it dry out use a clean towel if possible. This will prevent mould and stale smells settling in, which will cause the shower to degrade.
Avoid using strong or fragranced cleaners inside the shower bag as this can taint the water or damage the bag itself causing it to rip when filled up! Don’t use bleach either, it’s not needed.
Reuse, repair, recycle! Don’t leave it behind!
