Die Katzenwäsche = literally „cat wash“. A funny expression for a quick way of cleaning yourself when in a hurry to replace the usual lenghty bathing rituals. May be done in situations when you overslept and have to run or while camping or travelling — any situation where time or circumstance don‘t allow for your usual bathing rituals. Cats generally do not like water so „wash“ in quicker other ways. 🙂
