Thanks to the new SpaTap, campers can turn an ordinary plastic bottle into a pop up shower! The simple contraption clips onto an ordinary water bottle to allow campers to enjoy a nice soak off the grid without wasting a pile of water.

The incredible SpaTap attachment is simple and portable, easily carried in a bag or even a pocket. Made from medical grade silicone, the material is also anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, which keeps things clean and sterile. Attached to a string, the device can be hung from a tree, camper, tent pole, or any other elevated space.

The SpaTap slips easily over a standard plastic water bottle, and is then hung upside down. The built-in spout can be opened and closed to control water flow through the perforated shower head. With the SpaTap, you can easily take a shower, make a pop-up wash station for freshly picked fruits and vegetables, provide running water for a first aid kit, or just wash your hands. According to the designers, a two liter bottle can provide three showers or 20 hand washings – enough for a family to enjoy perfectly hygienic camping for a day.

Aside from providing a pop-up shower, SpaTap also repurposes a plastic bottle that may otherwise wind up in a landfill.
