It takes 30 minutes for me. I do a lot of thinking and get lots of ideas when I am in bathroom. If I am in a hurry I can take shower in 10 minutes, but not less than that. I wonder how my room mate takes shower everyday in 5 minutes. How long with it takes you for a normal shower? Do you think when you are in bathroom?

Usually it would take me 20-30 minutes for a shower and 1-2 hours if i am in a bathtub. I love playing with my rubber duckie...

That sounds interesting. I think one to two hours is a lot of time. I am sure my husnand won't allow me to be in bathroom for such a long time. He will be keep disturbing me to come out. Hope you have a private bathroom only for you. Thanks for the response.

U do a lot of thinking? are u entering a laboratory to invent something? I take bath in record time 2-3 mins max. Others at home take between 15-30 mins. I argue with them on this issue often. I tell them that even elephants dont take more than 5 mins to bathe..It take a few scrubbing and rubbing to clean up. After all a normal human being is only about 1ft wide and 6 ft tall.. so very little area to clean up

That is an interesting response. Yes, I agree that it is record time and I can never do that. I think men take less time for bath compared to women. I have also noticed that men get ready fast compared to women if you want to go out. I appreciate your fastness. Thanks for the response.

Yes I do have lot of thoughts running in my mind when I have a shower, but, I surely do not take as long as 30 minutes. I am inside for less than 12 minutes, and on the days I am shampooing my hair I takes about 20 minutes or so.

Ten to twelve minutes is a pretty good time. I forgot to talk about the time I take for washign my hairwhen I wrote the description of the discussion. I have very long hair and it takes a lot of time to shampoo my hair and apply conditioner. I don't wash my hair daily. I do it on weekends and holidays. Thanks for the response.

In the normal situation, it takes about 10 - 20 minutes for me. But if in the hurry, I take a bath about 5 - 10 minutes.... just brush my tooth, cleaning hair and body. I don't think anything while I'm in the bath room (shower/take a bat)

Thatis a pretty good time. Also, you are able to adjust your time according to your need. I forgot mention the time when I am taking a head bath. It will be even more. I have long hair and it is a big process to shampoo it. I don't take head bath daily. I will take it once in three or four days only on evenings.

less than 15 minutes. water is expensive, and if use too much water, the amount of water conservation tax i have to pay will increase

Fifteen minutes is a pretty good time. Yes, I should think about the fact that water is expensive. I live in a hostel and I am not sepeartely paying for the water. I mean I don't have to pay more if I use more water. So, I am using as plenty of water as I need. I will be careful when I move into a personal apartment.

I'm like your friend - it just takes me 4 minutes 25 seconds to take a normal shower. If i were to wash my cloths or clean the toilet, then it would take me extra time but a shower doesn't take much of my time. For the thinking part - you are right - my creativity unleashes only when i'm in the bathroom - may be that is where my mind finds peace. My mom calls it her wisdom seat - she gets great ideas and solution when she is in the restroom

It also take me about 30 minutes to take a bath... But some year ago, it took me longer to shower, about an hour...But because I was always late in my meetings, I did my best to adjust and reduce my shower time. I am glad I did...

If it is a normal bath, I take upto 5 to 7 minutes. I used to take Oil Bath once in a week and whenever I take Oil bath, it will take me around 30-35 minutes. Not more than that. My sister takes around 1 hour for a bath during holidays and I really wonder what she would be doing that long to take a normal bath. But there are many people like her when it comes to bathing

I take exactly 8minutes. During summer I take more time...And my shower time is the shortest in winter..My mother says I take crow shower in winter. Have you noticed crow taking shower ??? in puddle with as little water and it is iover in seconds hi hi But irrespective of the season I take elaborate shower on sundays. It is a good stress buster on sundays after long and elaorate cooking ha ha

It takes me more than 1 hours before I go out of the bathroom. I also wash at the same time my underwear and do my bowel movements. Then, I do not like to repeat doing the same things in 1 day, except when I travel in long journey. After i got home, I take a bath more than 2 times per day..

In normal shower, I spend 20 minutes. Same with you, I like to imagine something or think about my plan while bathing. It's nice, we are alone, nobody see and..some kind of "this is me time." I can spend 40 minutes if I do scrubbing at home and 1 hour or more when holiday and I take a bath in bath up If I'm in a hurry, I can make it in 5 minutes! Here I give you the tips to make it in 5 min : no need to wash your hair. First brush your teeth as fast as possible then don't rinse the soap in your face and body separately, rinse it at the same time. So you lather your face then lather your body without rinse your face. Rinse together face and body.. I find this trick works on me. Oh, and NEVER think or imagine something when you're in a hurry! Focus on the soap and water Hope this work!

If it is just shower to bath,then I will finish it off in five minutes.I don't use soaps daily and so,I can make it fast like that.If I have to soap myself after a hard day out,then it will take around 15 minutes and not more than that.I don't use to think under the shower but I do a lot on the toilet seat.Cheers!
