      The astronauts unfortunately can’t shower up there! There is very limited space and resources. They use wet wipes to freshen up. I bet they look forward to that first shower when they are back on Earth hey!?

      Astronauts can’t wash clothes as water is so precious so they just have new ones every time they change!
