 Halfbakery: Cleaning the homeless
A public shower needs to be recoverable quickly from a user who vomits in it, defecates in it, or just leaves trash in it.
He is admitted into an amazing hi-tech shower, comparable to a car wash in that it has spinning brushes, jets of water everywhere, and air jets to dry the occupant when the shower's done.

 Shower Movie Review at Hollywood Video
Zhang Yang's award-winning film Shower is a gentle examination of slowly eroding Chinese tradition, and an enchanting fable about the healing power of water.
The film opens with a fantasy about a sterile, high-tech public shower (a frightening, Metropolis-like motorized self-serve body wash for humans), then contrasts it with an invitation to a splendorous bathhouse filled with warmth, laughter, and vast amounts of steam — a place where patrons find nourishment for their souls.
Zhu Xu (King of Masks) is warm and astute as the strong and tender father; Jiang Wu (To Live), delightful, charming, and heartbreaking as Er Ming.
