Bathing in snow (melted or otherwise) just doesn't appeal to me.
Outside showers in South Mississippi in mid July are waaay too cold.
I imagine the nanas don't like it either...

Great question.

Fortunately, I have an even better answer.

My grandfather was a German soldier during WW1. I heard the stories about them washing naked in the snow. As a teen, I decided I would see if I had the same guff as he did. I did.

It's not bad. A little invigorating as all. Apparently, I inherited the same genes. I just don't feel cold the same way you do. My body temp is 96.8 and the summer kills me. It's all in the genes.

I was questioning whether it was effective without soap. It's abrasive so I suppose it does exfoliate skin but, still, I have my doubts about removing oil from the face and hair.

My uncle in law was a German soldier fighting on the Russian front during WWII. He said he ate rats and hated it. I have no interest in eating any rodents, even rabbits.

My body temp is 98.6 and the summer kills me.

Sure it is. You don't need soap in those temps. As you postulated, the snow is rough, and as it melts, it works as both soap and water.

Again, my temp is 96.8... not 98.6. Ice water will literally shut my throat down.

Just out of curiosity, what happens when you get a fever?

As a child, I became delirious at 104. Fortunately, I haven't had a fever in 45 years, so I don't bother to get flu shots.

I get a little light-headed. Back in the mid 90s when I was a general contractor, my dad and I were building a two story deck on this house. I kept missing the nails, and Dad sarcastically asked me why I wasn't hitting them. I said, "IDK Dad, maybe it's because I had a temp of 102 this morning." So my 102 was akin to your 104. As a kid, I did have a temp of 104 once, and my dumb ass mom was old school about it. Sweat a fever. She could have killed me.

You know how mothers are supposed to swaddle babies? I seem to vaguely remember suffering from being too hot while swaddled. I probably suffered from being too hot in the womb, but, I don't remember it.
