Waterless baths might just be the way of the future in drought stricken Western Cape

South Africans are finding new ways to solve old problems with less water. A young entrepeneur has developed a bath in 2011 that does not use any water.

This goes way beyond simply finding a way to stay clean in a water scarce province. The ingenious bath allows someone to take a bath anywhere and anytime.

Briefy.co.za learned that Ludwick Marishane, the brains behind the waterless bath, comes from Motetema which lies on the boarder of Limpopo and Mpumalanga according to goodthingsguy.com.

He has named his product the DryBath and is a clear germicidal and moisturising that is applied to the skin in the same way one would use a waterless hand sanitizer.
