Do you take a shower more than once a day in the summer?

Since the summer is upon us the days are getting a little hotter and stickier outside. Sometimes when you walk out the door it is so humid you wonder why you even bothered to get a shower that morning. Which brings up the question: Do you take a shower more than once a day when it is a sticky hot summer day?

not usually no,water is very expensive around here. it would have to be so oppresive there was no other way of cooling down. i did when i lived in arizona though,the water was free where i lived.

Wow, free water - now why can't it be free for all of us?

it should be. of course the area i'm in now claims it's free.. the fee is only for "quality control and filtering".. yea,i believe that one..

Again, apologies! It is always hot where I live but just that much hotter in the summer. The Island is small so we do get a lot of sea breezes where I live. I normally take two showers a day but if I am going out after work then I grab a quick shower too before departing. We are not really humid - only rarely - but it is very hot. I must shower before bed time - that is a must or I cannot sleep.

You're right about that. You would think the stink would get to them.

It depends on the day. If I happen to be doing errands in the morning on a day off and then working in the yard in the afternoon...of course. But if it's a work day I do my usual day routine and shower at night.

I'm like you - if I'm doing a lot to make me sweat then I'll get another shower.

I do. I shower as many times as it takes, whenever I feel like I'm dirty or I need to be refreshed. I don't have a set amount of showers that I take though, it varies from day to day. It doesn't only happen in the summer but my showers definitely do increase at that time because of the heat. Thank goodness for air conditioners though

I don't. I take a shower at night before I go to bed because I spend my days caring for farm animals and get pretty dirty and if I came inside and took a shower I wouldn't want to finish out the day. There are even days when it's hard to come into the air conditioned house and go back out to work.

That makes perfect sense to get a shower at night then.

I agree with you about the gardening. Whenever I work in my garden I always work up a sweat. Then I go inside and take a quick shower and I'm refreshed again.

without doubt i have taken shower more than once a dy in the summer. Even in the uk it's not so hot in the summer sometimes i still need to take more than one times of shower. Because every morning i go out to take excercise. Usually i get wet so i take a quick shower then i start my breakfast. in the evening if i go out to meet my friends, for good looking i sometimes take another quick shower then do some making up. i found my friends they also have similar habbit.

I used to do the same thing when I was younger and single. Take a shower before going out with friends or a date.

Here in Canada, ALberta to be exact. I take a shower everyday whatever the weather conditions are. I also love to bath and soak myself to relax and unwind.I just feel that germs are everywhere and can stick to you and your clothes easily so its better to shower it out everyday to be clean and feel fresh all the time.

I tend to take baths more in the winter time. Thanks for responding.

the summer months are quite humid and if one does not enter an air conditioned room after a shower then one tends to sweat immediately. i take bath every day in the morning but twice a day is not a regular feature for me. i bathe twice only on days when i reach home a little early or on days when the heat is unbearable.

Morning time is a good time to take a shower except if you are outside all day sweating. Then maybe you would need another shower.

Sometimes. I will if I took one in the morning and then I need to go to work in the evening. As it's always good to be "fresh" for your job. Otherwise once a day is good. Our summr has been really mild and frankly chilly at times witch is very unusual for us. Plus w/ my kids I'm thankful to get in the shower once a day w/o a major bicker or catratrophe occuring. Kids ya gotta love them but they drive ya nuts.
