Our grey and black tanks seem to fill up very quickly, and we take Navy showers. After reading a tip here on another thread, I bought from Amazon a case of those 9"x12" disposable soaped wash cloths for "bathing". Next, going to look for a can of dry shampoo.

We do quite a bit of dry camping. Here are a few tricks we've learned, 1. We put a plastic bowl in our kitchen sink and fill it with the waste water from hand washing and tooth brushing etc. that would normally be going down the grey tank and use it to flush the toilet. 2. We also use a dishpan in our kitchen sink and dump the water outside--not recommended in fancy campgrounds or pla
ces where bears are frequent visitors but ok when you have plenty of space between campsites. 3. If its warm and we have plenty of privacy we use our outdoor shower at night--free spirits only of course. 4. Use campground showers or toilets when available.

Following up on my previous post--The "bathing disposable washcloths" were just OK. I couldn't wait for a real shower though. The dry shampoo worked until it got hot outside. We were beach camping. I ended up washing my hair with cold water later.

We seldom ise chemicals of any kind in our black tank. If you have a good seal and water in the bowl, no odors will escape. We have gone two weeks without dumping at Quartzsite but that was in our motorhome. Now we have a TT with smaller tanks. Just spent three days without a sewer, no issues.
In very hot weather we might dump some non formaldhyde chems in. We were fulltime for eight years and probably used a dozen bottles of chemicals in that time
