As far back as 1948 R Buckminster Fuller demonstrated a design for a scientific method of cleaning.

The book The Dymaxion World of Buckminster Fuller states:

"His fog gun....afforded a new kind of bathing.

It combined [90%] compressed air (over 200 pounds/square inch) and [10%] atomized water with triggered-in solvents.

The kinetic force of the high-pressure air stream was utilized without the skin-damaging effect unavoidable in high-pressure needle-pointing of water streams....."

"....A one-hour massaging pressure bath used only a pint of water.

If fog gun bathing were done in front of a heat lamp, all the sanitary & muscle-relaxing effects of other types of bathing could be effected without the use of any bathroom."

This idea could also be adapted to washing dishes, clothes, vehicles, etc.
