Every shower I take in our 17 is a sponge bath with a rinse. I like to count and see how many seconds of water it takes me to wet down, then for the rinse off. I can usually do it in about 45 seconds worth of water and our shower head is about 2 gallon per minute.
Here in the buggy Midwest we have to live in insect repellent most of the year in the woods, I hate climbing into bed with that stuff on. We use our shower all the time and can still go for quite a few days before needing to empty the grey water. I do keep a bucket along that I can empty some grey water into and walk it to the toilet to extend our capacity when necessary. Ranger at Yellowstone taught me that trick
