  • OMG...We had a hard freeze and I live in AZ so we don't really prepare for stuff like this and our pipes were froze for 3 days, then another 2 days to fix the ones that broke! I boiled water for the kids but thats too much water to boil for me, Day 4 I was so grossed out I went and washed my hair in the hose(that pipe didnt break go figure!) and freshened up with baby wipes!

  • A week. While camping. We did wash up in the river pretty much every day, but it's not really the same without soap. I did wash my hair though once mid-week in a bucket.

  • 3 days- our hot water heater had broken in the middle of winter so we just had very cold water until payday when we were going to go and buy a new one. I did heat some water in the microwave and take 'sink baths' to feel somewhat clean.
