One topic that came up is shaving legs. What methods do you ladies use to shave your legs while using a minimal amount of fresh water. Have you tried it with salt water? Does it work well? Sting?

Thanks and any replies would be much appreciated by females or males who have observed this being done.
I'll put this matter of supreme importance to the Ms Wombat and see what she says. I can tell you that salt water is not the answer. I have a feeling the Ms W will concur with Gypsy Womans method but confirmation will follow. But what of a Brazilian he asked ? Ouch.
