Which do you prefer??I prefer taking a shower as i feel it makes my skin come more alive and is much faster than soaking in the tub. Baths are too boring. I prefer to have water running over me at all times. I also need to have my water really hot. I cannot take cold showers What about you?? what is your preference??

Is there a difference between soaking in the tub and taking a bath? I thought they were the same thing. As for which I prefer, it depends. I feel showers get me cleaner and I take them when I need to wash my hair, but I also like taking baths sometimes, especially since we've got a jacuzzi tub. Great for relaxing.

When I am going somewhere like work or date or just out with friends I takea shower, but if it's a lazy day, I take a nice long hot bath to relax.

Personally, I prefer a shower. It is a lot quicker, and I feel I get cleaner. Yes, baths are good to soak and relax in, but I still find myself having to rinse off afterwards so why not take a shower?

When you think about it that way you are absolutely correct. Plus you got to clean out the tub once you are done. So save all the trouble and take a shower. Thanks for your response

Shower. Soaking wastes too much water imho. Showers are fuss-free, and great for people on the go like me. :)

We only have a tub so I don't have much choice, unfortunately. I love taking showers whenever we go away. They're much more convenient, plus they don't waste as much water. I also recently found out that soaking in the tub is very bad for my neck because the angle it is forced into. So, another strike against the long soak.

I prefer showers because I feel like I get cleaner and I like to wash my hair while I'm at it. I like bathes once in a while when I am very tired and just want to soak not nesseraily to get clean. Just to relax. When taking a bath I like to use oils and stuff like that. I like showers and my baths very hot. The hotter the better. Usually when i get out I am red as a beet!

Soaking in a tub is out of the question because we don't have a bath tub ;) Besides, these bath tubs are a waste of water and my fingers has the tendency to look like raisins when immersed in water for a long time. I prefer baths and showers.
