As soon as he's steady on his feet, Barbossa takes the slimy, foul-smelling stuff that Miss Dalma uses for soap and tromps upstream until he finds a waterfall.
He has to peel his shirt, crusted with blood, from his chest.
He scrubs angrily at the dried blood that surrounds the still-tender scar where Jack killed him. The soap doesn't lather well, but it does the job; when he pours water over his chest, it comes away clean.
It takes all the soap in the jar, but when he finally stands beneath the cool waterfall, he feels his death wash away.
