The sort of shower head to purchase is the kind that attaches to a regular faucet with a rubber gasket. The hose should be about three feet long, ending in a soft rubber shower head. The squirter attachment that comes with a kitchen sink is not recommended because most require fairly strong water pressure to work, and that is too much pressure to use on the cat. The flow of water from the rubber shower head should be gentle.
Finally, you also need to be aware that your friends and relatives might come to think of you as their personal bootlegger. That’s a term from prohibition days when people brewed “kitchen countertop refinishing gin” at home and sold it in the neighborhood. If they start knocking on the door, make sure you charge them something to cover the brewing costs and to get your bottles back. Trust me. I am told that people, even friends and relatives, will try to take advantage of you.
Bodycology Sparking Grapefruit Body Mist, for about $5. You can use this anytime, at home or on the town. I also like the fruity body mists as a way of getting rid of cigarette odors on clothes when you return from a smoky dance club. The body mist is 8 fluid ounces.
Choose rooms on the north and east sides of your shelter if no interior rooms are available. Stay near the innermost walls. Avoid rooms on the south and west, because tornados usually travel from southwest to northeast.
Obtain some silver polish. I recommend using a kind that is not too liquid. The best types are those that are a semi-solid and are applied with a foam sponge. Get several small towels, hand towels work well enough, that can get very dirty. You will also need a pair of bad quality thin gloves and the three cloths used above.
The second benefit is that it seems to help calm my kids down. Now granted it could just be because the bath is relaxing for them, but I know that when I use the Vicks Vapor bath they seem to relax more than normal with the bath. I also know that this works great when I use the bedtime bath bubbles as well. So the bubbles seem to help my kids relax more than they normally would.
This experience has changed the way we perceived the dangers associated with elderly bathing. Needless to say after this incidence the family purchased a walk in bathtub for her. She has been enjoying it for the last 4 weeks. The air spa jets have helped her arthritis as much if not more than the medication she has been taking. She’s happy with her new bathtub and the family is no longer has to worry about bathing accidents. I thought I would share my story so that it may make others aware of the dangers that the bathroom can hold for the elderly.
