I live in a van and only shower once a week – when I do, it’s often with a hose or at Planet Fitness

SOME lifestyles aren’t for everyone, but one traveler is perfectly content living in a van and showering once a week.

Her weekly cleaning is often done with a hose, she said.

Abigail Martin (@abigailmartiin) shared the video with over 1.1 million TikTok followers.

She was criticized for bathing so often: “Ew you only shower once a week I never could,” said one commenter.

The blonde rolled her eyes as she rubbed her fingers together and pretended to play the smallest violin in the world.

Others were fascinated by how she managed to even shower while living in a van on the go.

“How does she shower?” asked a curious viewer.

Abigail brought viewers to her home to reveal that while she doesn’t have a shower in her van, she does have two favorite methods of showering.

“My first method is my outdoor shower in my van. That’s great because I just turn on my hot water, plug in that hose and shower outside,” she said.

However, when she is in places where people are around, she drives to a friend’s house to clean up.

“I used to go to Planet Fitness most of the time, but when I’m in town with friends or family, they’re usually kind enough to let me use their shower.”

People used the comments to share their thoughts.

Some thought their trips to Planet Fitness were awesome: “Planet Fitness is a great place to shower and affordable,” said one commenter.

Others were influenced by her to pursue the lifestyle of a traveler: “I’m ready to live this life,” said another.
