For people who don’t have time to bathe or access to fresh water, a South African college student has a solution: a shower gel users simply rub onto their skin. One small packet replaces one bath, and users never need any water. Ludwick Marishane’s inspiration was a lazy friend, but his invention will be a boon to people who live in areas where clean water is in short supply.

Necessity is the mother of invention.
And why hasn’t this blown up yet?
The same reason anti-rape sleeves haven’t caught on, because it comes from Africa and doesn’t seem useful to middle class white men in America and Europe?
These last two comments crack me up. By what standard do you consider success? It hasn’t blown up? It says it’s already sold 250k units BEFORE it even made it to retail market! So what your real problem is that it hasn’t blown up on tumblr.. Which I hate to say isn’t middle class white men, but rather mostly privileged white girls. Come off your high horse, it’s an amazing product that is doing well. Don’t make it part of your political agenda.
