The sonic cleanser is a terran device primarily found on capital ships such as battlecruisers. Similar to jets that blast the meat off bones at slaughterhouses, it consists of a high pressure water jet that washes the user as efficiently and in as short a time as possible, a blast of hot air drying him/her immediately afterwards. In some cases, the ship's commanding officer has access to less intense cleaning, possessing a regular shower with 'real' water (albeit for only thirty seconds, as per regulations).
The sonic cleansers are often used at isolated research stations where water is in short supply, and their powered jet have been known to remove layers of skin.
