I really love your idea you always tell informative ideas that everybody can apply on their own. Outdoor showers are also the superb idea. Calgary Pro Movers

When I went off to college a zillion years ago, the university recommended a bucked to carry hygiene supplies to and from the bathroom in the dorms. Great idea! When my children went off to camp I made them bath bags out of window screen for their shower supplies. I embroidered their names on the bags, and filled them with supplies. The water drains out of bag (unlike the buckets), and their things stay dry.

Maybe for outdoor showers, but a simple shelf makes more sense to me for indoors. Seem like someone would always be running into it or banging their head on it. ?
