its summer even here and i take a long, long time to freshen up. i can't do it in jiffy. i cleanse myself thoroughly and then have a nice shower, preferably with lime fresh cologne. this takes up almost an hour. but then, this is only one time in a day. for the other times i normally take 5-8 mins. during winters, i bathe only once and take up about 30 mins. smiles...

I go with my wife to the YMCA and we go every day except Sunday..its closed on Sunday in the summer.. we take a shower..15 minutes swim..do water walking or aerobics or open swimming..then go to the sauna another 15 minutes ..take another shower..10 minutes or so..go into whirl pool..then sauna..then another shower..lol..well you get the drift..it is part of our routine..so we spend a lot of time in the water..it is so relaxing and i don't have to pay the water bill..my water bill is only 20 dollars last month.we still have to use water for clothes and washing dishes..and the lawn...and drinking..lol

It takes 8-10 minutes to enjoy a good bath, irrespective of weather.

Well I think I stayed longer than you in the bathroom. It took me about 25 to 30 minutes. Why? because everytime I take a bath I include the cleaning of the whole area of the bathroom.....LOL

I think that bath time should be a time of the day for relaxing. Maybe even to the point of taking a little nap...

Hmm i think one should at least take bath for 15 mins as to clean the body and fell the freshness of the water so i prefer to be in bath for 15 min at least

I like my showers long and so I spend an average of 30-40 minutes in the bathroom (pissing my roommate off though!) and sometimes I'll be in there until all of the hot water runs out (again pissing my roommate off!!). But when I am running late or something, I usually am done in 10-15 minutes (roommate happy!).

I tend to shower and not bathe. I will rinse off a bit more frequently when it is really hot. However, I spend enough time to wash my hair and body and then get out. I am not one to soak and it uses more water. Paying for water will cause you to think about saving it when you can. Also the energy it takes to heat the water is something that is needing to be paid for also. So it is a practical thing and as long as I have a variety of shower gels I can have my 5 or 10 'vacation' while I get clean. Again only rinsing when it is hot so as not to dry out the skin.
