Great analysis, thanks everybody! I like the idea of the baggies, that sounds like a good solution - would require a lot of 'em though, two per person, plus rubber bands or something to hold 'em on people's feet. I wonder if we dunked the baggies in sanitizing liquid in between uses if that would sa...

[quote="Bob"]One obstacle is the health dept because it's essentially public bathing. Doubt your average septic contractor is going to want to haul anything like cornstarch. A dump might take it if you can solidify it, otherwise might have to drum it and dispose as hazardous waste. You haven't put t...
