For every parent who has struggled to get their child into the tub, there is a new invention by a South African student that may make life easier: DryBath.
This clear gel cleans the skin just as well as soap and water. What's different from most other antibacterial products is that it does not smell heavily of alcohol and leaves the skin feeling clean and moisturized. The inventor, Ludwick Marishane, was inspired by a friend who hated to take baths in the winter due to lack of hot water.
While certain to be appreciated by anyone not fond of bathing, this new technology may prove most useful in areas where water is hard to come by. It also helps by reducing water waste.
So say it with me, five-year-olds: Down with bath time! Long live DryBath!
