GREYTOWN’S drastically reduced water supply has resulted in many a challenge – and topping the priority list is how to keep clean and healthy using as little water as possible.

The solution – a good strong three, four or five-litre garden pressure spray, which can be bought locally.

Greytonian Jan van Biljon contacted the Greytown Gazette: “A friend of mine mentioned that when he goes camping he uses a pressure sprayer and has a nice shower with about three litres of water. This was such a good idea that I immediately bought one with a four-litre capacity (I have another, but this had been used for spraying insecticides and was worried about the residue).

My wife and I now both have a decent spray, or wash or shower using just a couple of litres. You can hold the spray in your hand, obviously it is better n your birthday suit, and it’s easy to spray water on yourself, but even more fun if your partner does the spraying.

The Greytown Gazette would appreciate positive water- saving tips from readers for publication. Residents are facing the same hassles so positive suggestions, like the spray shower, are of great help to many.
