    The Bottle Shower

    Keeping clean when trekking or when you're out in the woods can be a problem but here's a clever idea:

    As the website says

    Turn 1 litre of clean water into 10 litres of washing time
    Bottleshower™ provides emergency washing and showering from a bottle for refugees, disaster victims and aid teams who rely on water distributed in plastic drinking bottles.
    See the benefits of Bottleshower™ by watching our video below.

    I haven't had any problems with it using Zone Alarm
    I also put it through AVG and nothing showed up there so I assume it's OK

    Just seen on another forum that people have had difficulty with Virgin as an ISP

    also see these people - http://spatap.com/

    No problems viewing here with Virgin Media, nice concept BUT, is it not just as easy to put holes into the bottom of the bottle or the bottle top, thus saving the expense of the bottle shower and buying more water.

    Virgin media didn't work for me although I do run the firewall with the most strict settings.

    These sites are useful for checking out URLs before actually visiting them, although as ever proceed with caution even if your URL is reported as clean.....

    It's not just a case of holes, you need to let air in, in a controlled way. That's how it lasts so long. Damn good idea for disaster areas though.
