Showers

83 posts in this topic

There is a solar shower in the field next to the john peel tent. We camped right next to it for ended up not having one anyway! Think it was shared by all but if you take swimming stuff or some clothes you dont mind not wearing to put on whilst showering that will work. There are also showers dotted throughout the site. Usually quite long q's

Don't think the showers were that popular. You could really smell everyone on the coach on the way back this year.

And no offence to anyone here who does it, but the people who queue up in big groups to wash their hair at the standpipes on the Friday morning when everyone else is queing up for drinking water (and therefore ensures the queue to fill up a couple of small bottles of water takes over an hour) should be banished.

Hi all, thanks for the replys, think i'll stick with the wet-wipe option, and a bucket of water for a hair wash. Like everyone says, we're all in the same boat and im sure we'll fine better things to do than stand in ques waiting for a shower.

Cheers

I can honestly say that there's a massive difference between baby wipes and having a shower. I've yet to have one at Glastonbury but I had one (an amazing, full power, private one!) at End of the Road and it made some difference. I remember seeing people looking all smug as they came out while I was queueing. Taking into account how long you're at Glastonbury for, I'm well going for one next year.

We used the greenpeace showers around 11am Sunday morning this year. The girls only queued for 10 mins, the boys even less, and the showers were lovely and warm.

I've seen people doing that at other fests and it really wound me up, its the hight of selfishness imo and just makes the mud around the taps even worse when they're the type that dont have a trough at the bottom :P

I think all of Lush's products are biodegradable. I used one of their Shampoo bars before and that

worked out OK. Just make sure you buy a tin as well, very messy once wet.

Don't go to the showers in the morning the queue's are a nightmare. I have jjoined the queue's in the past waited for 1.2 hour and then been told they close at lunch time, and how long the queue takes depends on how long people are in there. I have had success the past 2 years by carrying a towel around with me and then poping to the greenpeace solar showers in the afternoon, once I still had to queue but only 20mins and another time no queue at all. The showers are really nice and totally worth it.

Dry shampoo all the way, for men and women. I haven't had a shower at a festival yet but 5 days can be pushing it. Use some decent scented baby wipes for your arms pits and below region. Also have a shower at the very lat minute before you set off to the site from your home

Showered this year, waited about an hour, was fine and felt great after. Clean skin gets sun burn faster or it was just sunny.

I've never seen anyone doing that, what idiots!

My mate was p*ssing herself at the girls who camped next to us at T a few years ago coz they spent every morning throughly cleaning their wellies with baby wipes. I can understand giving them a quick wipe before you go into your tent but not if you're heading out around the site

wet wipes and 'lady' wipes are the way forward!! Do all your important bits every morning and night, then every other day give everywhere a wipe down.

The only trouble with that is that you remove the 'festival tan' each time :P

Last year was my first Glasto and I managed with baby wipes. This year though I've found no-rinse body wash. It's basically liquid soap that lathers up and you just dry it off with a towel. And it smells of baby wipes too.

What does open plan mean? In the showers or changing rooms? My gf might have a shower but doesn't fancy showing her hairy bits off.

Hi all, this is a purely girly question but is there and showers at Glasto?

I went back in 99 and had a quick look for them but was sidetracked by beer and music. Did'nt mind too much, babywipes done the job back then, but now im a bit older and wiser (and prefer better hygiene :P )

If anyone has info on this i'd be greatful.

Cheers

Oh the 'No Rinse' products are sooo worth a go. I've used the shampoo, conditioner and body wash the last 2 glasto's and will be stocking up for this year too. I always take good old baby wipes too and the combo work a treat, feel really fresh and smell good too :P
