I never thought about this before, but each time that I can remember, the first thing I dried off first is my left arm, and then my right arm, and that's before I even step out of the tub. Why the arm? I really can't tell ya. What part do you dry first?

Wrong!! My feet, because when I step out of the bathtub from a bath or a shower, I will dry my feet off first, to keep from the water getting all over the floor. I hate stepping out of the tub with wet feet!

When I'm done taking a shower, I dry my hair first... I don't use hair dryer or anything, I just get the towel & start at my head then work my way down... I don't get out of the tub until I dry everything but my feet... Come to think of it, I don't know why I do this either... I usually stay in the tub & dry myself all the way down to my feet, then step out...

Now when I think about it, I've done the same thing many times than I can count. I dry my self off all the way down to my legs,then as I step out of the tub, I dry each foot off one at a time.

I also do my left arm first and so on. My front and back are after the arms and then the legs and feet. My hair I use a different towel for as it is very long. Have a nice day. Your new friend onlydia

I usually dry my feet first before I step out. Not to get the floor all wet. Then I work my way up from there.

i don't use a towel to dry off so i don't have a certain part that i dry off first... i just air dry lol by the time make it into my room and am ready to put clothes on, my body is dry and drying off with a towel can actually bother me skin.. so thats another reason why i just air dry..
