    Inflatable bed bath

    Anyone use one before? How do they work? Are they better than the usual sponge bath?

    They work pretty well, although the water will only be about 4-6" deep, and it cools off pretty quick. You do need to have the right bedroom set up, ideally with being able to drain directly into a sink, shower or tub, rather than into a bucket by your bed, as emptying all those buckets of water gets old pretty quick. Be sure to buy the hanging shower type bag that comes as an accessory too.
