If you're buying cottage cheese anyway (and I don't know of a bring your own container or a returnable container) then getting an extra use out of the resource before recycling isn't a bad thing...

I'd lather up with the cottage cheese and then use the shower.
It's like a milk bath but chunkier.

You're rubbing a chunk of ice all over your body.
It has to be summer before you appreciate it.

They call that (ice cube/mouth/Mr.Happy) a "California Cooler"

i hate 'for men' body wash stuff.

#1 it stinks
#2 its heavily dyed to be an ugly ass blue or green.

the stuff for females, or just 'anyone' is way better...

#1 it smells awesome!
#2 its sometimes not dyed at al!!


i guess the marketers think 'men' are so insecure that they need soap that stinks like a nasty car air freshener and is blue, because ya kno.. guys dig blue..

On the surface it seems clever, but it seems like a whole lot of extra steps in order to take a shower. To say nothing of the challenge you'd have keeping each puck frozen long enough to use it out there. Just bring your soap of choice, find a basin, shower stall, or evap pond to stand in and go nuts with the icy cooler meltwater you have right there, that day.

Might be easier to just freeze the water without soap and just bring the soap separately. Then you can have enough ice/water for rinsing no matter how much of the chunk of ice you use.
