For people who don’t have time to bathe or access to fresh water, a South African college student has a solution: a shower gel users simply rub onto their skin. One small packet replaces one bath, and users never need any water. Ludwick Marishane’s inspiration was a lazy friend, but his invention will be a boon to people who live in areas where clean water is in short supply.

Eid Mubarak ya’ll 😊😊
"Muslims across the globe bid farewell to the holy month of Ramadan and welcomes Eid al-Fitr, a three-day holiday (in some countries) that marks the end of the month of fasting. Family and friends spend time together to celebrate. Exchanging good wishes and sometimes gifts to one another. An important part of Eid Al-Fitr is performing acts of charity. Charity, often in money and food, are donated to help the needy. Eid al-Fitr is a time to celebrate the good things in life, give thanks for all the blessings you have ,and try to show a common goal of unity .Observant Muslims start the day of festivities by praying a special Eid prayer often performed in a mosque or communal grounds. Usually people put on their best clothes often purchased just for the occasion. They visit loved ones, have a feast, and pay their respects to the deceased in cemeteries. Homes are decorated and filled with sweets. Children receive gifts, candy, or money from their elders. Meals during the festivities and traditions of celebration vary by country.”
