Too Lazy to have a shower, worry no more,
There’s a lotion for that.
DryBath is a germ-killing gel that allows you to take a bath without
using a single drop of water or soap — all you need is to apply the
gel on your skin and then vigorously rub it off using your hands.
“The special formula will cover the whole body with the cleansing gel,
which will use the vigorous rubbing to lift the dirt off the skin,”
explains Ludwick Marishane, the inventor of DryBath and founder of
The 23-year-old entrepreneur came up with his revolutionary idea back
in 2007, during a hot winter day when he was relaxing with some
friends under the blazing sun in Limpopo, northern South Africa. The
idea of this invention was given to Marishane by one of his pals.
Still in high school, Marishane immediately took to Google and
Wikipedia to start researching creams and lotions, learning everything
about their components and how they are produced. Since he didn’t have
a computer he carried out his investigations using his mobile phone
and a few months later he’d devised his own special formula — at the
age of 17, Marishane became South Africa’s youngest patent-filer.
Marishane, who won the global student entrepreneur award in 2011, went
on to study at the University of Cape Town and soon got his
DryBath-producing business running. He says his trademarked invention
can be a “precious tool” for the millions of people lacking access to
clean water and sanitation, as well as an an attractive option for
corporate groups — from airlines and hotels to gyms and even aid
agencies — who want to encourage their clients and users to save
