I live in a cabin without running water and usually get jugs of water from a spring. Because of this I don't take showers very often, maybe every three or four days, to a week at the most (usually). So, is there any advice you can give me about basic hygeine and taking care of my girlie bits when living in a dwelling without a bathroom? (We have an outhouse in the yard.) Sometimes I feel like I should be keeping myself cleaner or something, but don't really know what to do since there's no water. Thanks in advance for any advice about this.

Actually, the vagina is self-cleaning. Bonus!

So, it's a good idea to just keep some water aside so that you can wipe down every day a little, but chances are, you'll be just fine.
