People in Africa suffer from drought every year. A more efficient way of using water is more than a good news to people there.
U-bath is specially designed for bathing in arid regions. It aims at leveling up the efficiency of the way bath water is used, given that the cleanness is assured. The body of U-bath consists of loofah and polyurethane bibulous sponges. The surface human body directly touches is covered by meshes and the outer side contains rubber materials, thus preventing waste of water. Both ends of U-bath are equipped with hasps, which can clean of both the main body and limbs.
