Me I do take a bath before going to bed, it is refreshing and it is very nice to sleep when you feel very clean... In the morning I just wash my fce and toothbrush my teeth before doing my household task... How about you guys?

Unless you do something at nite for which you need to clean up, why wouldn't anyone take a bath before going to bed? You've collected lot of dirt, body oder etc all day and now you go lay in it all night, then get up and wash it off? Well if you want to I guess its your choice, but next day you collect all that again, and take it to bed with you and sleep in it, but not only todays grim - you are sleeping in yesterdays grim too as it is still in the bed sheets and covers! So you get todays grim and yesterdays grim to sleep with all night! Gross! Not to mention , smell your room after a few days - unless you change your sheets every day - the smell starts to collect! Shower before you go to bed! Nothing better than a nice, clean sleep! I you need help waking up - dunk your head under water, wash your face, something like that.

Hi lyn, I do take my bath for twice in a day. Morning bath and dusk bath. For me, morning bath is a must because while preparing breakfast to my family, my body sweating. So I have to take bath before joining my family breakfast. And I will ensure my 3 kids to take their bath before having meals. Dusk time of course for my second bath and consider as my bath before sleep. In fact I will try to take a bit earlier than dusk time, let say at 6 pm. And if I miss that time and I found I am after 8 pm for it, I will no longer take my bath to take care for my bone's health. My physician told me that way, so I am just following that advice.

My normal routine is taking a shower when I reach home from work, at about 7pm. After that I don't have the habit to shower again before i go to bed.

Well every one needs to have his or her bath before going to bed, thats personal hygiene. You cannot after days work, end up in the bed, we have some micro organisms that develop especially when we sweat. So it is a must do thing for one to have a healthy body.

I've never thought of taking bath before going to bed. As far as i'm concerned right from my childhood i'm taught to take shower after i wake up in the morning. Taking bath at night sounds odd to me. Well first let me try having shower at night and share my experince soon.

I like to take lukewarm water shower in the morning if it is a rainy day whereas in a sunny day I usually prefer cold water shower so as to make me energetic. In the evening I do like to take lukewarm water shower before having my supper normally about 8 pm. If the weather is really hot I then will take a cold water shower before going to bed. I like to brush my teeth at the washbowl instead of at the bathroom.

I like to take cold water bath daily unless I feel the water from the overhead tank is very cold. I prefer hot water then. But I like cold water for my head or else my hair becomes very dry..

Hi Subha, Do not let the hair get wet. Then sure you'll catch cold. Always tie up your hair and then have body bath, if you are showering , get a shower cap for that purpose. you will not catch cold.. I am sure

I agree with you it is nice to sleep after shower. I do that before. But you know what, for health purposes, take a bath only in the morning when your all rested. In the evening try to clean yourself with bimpo as much as posible. In the evening, your body is tired from working and when you take a bath when you are all tired it is where all the cronic pains comes. You may not feel it now but they will come when you age like 40 or over. My sugestion is try to reverse your bathing time. take a bath only in the morning before you work and do your things for the day. Avoid bathing at night as much as possible.

I cannot agree with you on that dear. If you are past that age a hot water bath before going to bed uin the night will relieve you of the body pains. I am in my fifties and I should know... You have written about forties and so i think you should be younger.. Once you get used to having bath in the night it will not hurt you... I take bath in the night only in summer when it gets very hot here.

In the morning so I'll feel refreshed. Since I work in an airconditioned office and it's usually cool in the San Francisco Bay area, I don't sweat. So there's no need to shower at night. Besides, if I shower at night, I'll be wide awake and have difficulty falling asleep.

It all depends upon my activities. If I have done nothing all day, I will normally take a shower in the morning to wake up and feel fresh for the day and before bed, I will take baby wipes and freshen myself up and wash my face with soap and warm water. If I work, I always shower before work and after work.

Hey, You shower only once in a day is it. I shower daily in the morning and in the night before going to bed also. You feel fresh. If I don't shower in the morning the whole day will be gloomy and I don't feel comfortable, so I bathe twice a day.

In Hindu religion, most people take bath early in the morning to be more fresh, clean, and they also pray god everyday before they embark on their day to day work. A few people who work hard in foundries, or machine shop or those who travel long distances for their work, take a bath in the night or in the evening and again they take bath next day too. I take bath in the morning after my exercises.

I do both. During school days, I take a bath before going to bed because I still need to study. Then, I have to take a bath in the morning because my class is at 7am. But during vacation, I take a bath in the afternoon. :)
