    DIY screw cap shower

    Staying clean on the trail couldn't be easier. Use the Pledge floor cleaner cap on your Platypus, Evernew, Sawer Squeeze, Smartwater bottle or whatever bottle you like, it seems to fit everything perfectly. I would use it on a platypus hanging from a branch for a slow shower. On a bottle just point and squeeze at the area your cleaning. It also great in camp in a 2L platypus as a water source for washing hands cleaning dishes and just filling up a pot for cooking. The cap is a pop open close and really stays shut, so its ok to use in your pack. Would also work for alcohol bottle for filling your stove. Hope somebody gets something out of this. Cheers

    I had done something similar by drilling holes in a bottle cap but this is more convienent.

    Great job on the research and repurposing of easy to find and inexpensive items. I'm sure there are a lot of uses for this.
    And the ideas keep flowing.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
