Have kids soap up at the pool shower

My kids have been swimming more this summer than any before. We do this as well...a hack was hiding in our midst! From Chris in Austin, TX:

Here's my favorite summertime "hack"--we swim quite often at our neighborhood pool, usually in the afternoon hours. I always bring shampoo for the kids to use in the outdoor showers before we leave--hair gets cleaned, bodies and suits get rinsed of chlorine, and they get to skip their evening shower--everyone wins!

I find that the shampoo-conditioner combo (right now we're using L'oreal Kids) does the best job on chlorine-saturated hair.
