A close fitting appliance with elastic openings and gaskets that attaches to a weak vacuum should do the trick. It should include a liquid cleaning system with non irritating anti bacterial chemicals. Diet should include stole softeners. Recycling water is the only complicated issue.

Wouldn't it make sense to use it as "fuel" somehow?
