Honestly speaking-Do you take a bath everyday?

If that question was asked at about 5 years ago... My answer would be yes. But now, I would have stopped and think first before answering. I am a home-based lady. And I earn money through mylot, so help me out. Just kidding. Well, being at home all day long, everyday of the week, 24/7, I didn't mind skipping a bath on some days. Especially when the weather is cold-the water is freezing. (You know, we don't have a hot watered shower. I don't even know what it's called.) So don't go to our house without calling me first. Gee!

Yes, I DO take a bath everyday regardless of the weather conditions. We have a water heater in but in some instances where there isn't one, I'd boil water. If both options weren't available, I wouldn't stay over in a place like that. I need my bath time because I'm a clean freak. I do mind skipping baths. In fact, regardless of the weather I shower at least 2 times a day. In the morning and before bed time.

No, I don't think poorly of you. My grandpa only used to bathe twice a week and he'd always smell like soap regardless.

Yes I do bathe or shower daily. I would feel weird if I didn't I think. One thing you said was that you do not have hot water. That might cause me to think twice on a cold winter day. Are you able to heat up water for a bath? I've had times when I have been temporarily out of hot water and I heated up kettles of water and poured them into the bath. It works.

i mean we doesn't have the kind of shower that you only have to set and wait for some minute then the water would come out very warm, depends on your setting. we can boil water from the kettle but that would cause a lot of LPG usage.

Well then, if you aren't going anywhere or working up a sweat then I doubt it would matter if you missed a day or two here and there. I'm sure there are many who are in the same situation as you where they must conserve.

Hello. Yes, ma'am , to be honest with you, I take a bath twice a day on working days, Monday to Friday, one in the morning right after getting up from bed, and one right after I get back home from work. Over the weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, I get a bit lazy ! Ha ha ! I would take it easy and take a bath only when I feel like it !! But, any way, once a day then.

I take a bath everyday. All my faminily do so. But when I was in the University where locating at the North of my country, I didn't too. In clod winter, I took bath every three or four days, even once a week. My classmate who was born in the North, took bath once a month, or even longer. I can't believe it at the first begining, But when you live with them longer, you will find that it's very natural. I was told that in their hometown, somebody even takes bath once a year. I can't imaging it.

That is unbelievable. Gee! If I don't take a bath in one day, I make it sure that I take a bath the next day. But to take a bath once a year! Incredible! Gee! That place must be so cold. Hehehe :)

hello! :) I would love to say yes but hahahaha...i'm sorry to say that I fail to take a bath everyday. I mean I always wanted to be so clean and all, but there are days that I just can't do it for some reason and I skip a bath once in awhile. Hehe! Well, my recent reason was I'll be late at work so I just washed my face and get my clean clothes and run to my office. Happy Mylotting!

Yes, I take a shower everyday. I have curly hair now so I have to wash it everyday or it looks terrible. And I can't stand to not take a shower each day cause I feel gross if I don't. I take mine each morning and sometimes I'll take one at night if I need to...like if I go outside and get sweaty or something.

I don't take a shower everyday. I usually do, but somedays I just get up and go... and as long as I wasn't too active that day... there's no need to take a shower the next day.

If the weather is freezing cold like you described, then, I don't think it is necessary to take a bath because you can end up being sick especially if you don't have the heater. In my place where the weather is unpredictable, sometimes hot and suddenly it's raining, I do take a bath everyday, but if it's raining heavily, it can be very cold, so, at least at such climate, I would take a bath once.

I take a bath or shower everyday before I go to work. I feel uncomfortable if I don't take a bath. I don't take a shower or bath if I'm not feeling well. I think it's not advisable to take a bath if you are sick.

Hi, whenever possible, I have to take bath everyday, unless if I am going for vacation where the facilities is not so sufficient, then i'll try to skip taking bath everyday. Since the weather is always hot in my country and I am working (which means I always have to leave the house), so I must take bath everyday, or else I willl feel very uncomfortable.

If leaving the house is the case, I would never go out without taking a bath of course :)

invisiblelady since I take showers to bathe and my hair is very dry if I shower 'every day i will skip a day or two and am still clean. I use herbal essence shampoo for dry hair and herbal essence conditioner too, and bath lotion in the shower to moisturize my dry skin. also I use suaves vanilla and lavender skin lotin to further moisturize my skin and relax me for sleep.

I always take a bath everyday. The weather in our country is mostly warm so not taking a bath for a day means smelling like dried sweat. Though when its weekend and I don't need to go to the office I just take a bath during night time. i am quite lazy taking a bath during the day if I can help it. If the weather is cold I would heat water. I always like taking a bath with a warm water it relaxes me and make me feel clean.

Yeah. It's always warm in our country. But in our place here, the water is always cold, I don't know why. I hope we could get that hot shower equipment. Boiling water cost a lot of gas and LPG nowadays is very expensive :)
