A sonic shower was a common hygiene device used in the United Federation of Planets. (TOS movie: Star Trek: The Motion Picture; TNG episode: "The Game"; DS9 episodes: "If Wishes Were Horses", "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night", "Nor the Battle to the Strong", "Favor the Bold", "Extreme Measures", "The Siege of AR-558"; VOY episodes: "Juggernaut", "Day of Honor"; New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "Tempered by the Forge")

Montgomery Scott knew how to turn a sonic shower into a low-power disruptor; he once expressed to Matt Franklin upon meeting him and learning of his hero worship that the process of tuning a deflector dish into a photon torpedo was similar, in that a good engineer needed to rip devices apart and try to put them together wrong in order to see how they worked. (Star Trek novel: Engines of Destiny)
