Do you take long showers or just get in and out quickly?

I love to take long (hot) showers. Our hot water heater lasts pretty long too so this isn't a problem for that. I know when I was growing up, our water bill would be high and my dad had us take shorter showers. I can easily be in the for half an hour - mostly standing under the water - but I did learn to take 15 minute showers on a regular basis. Now that I have my own place and the water is free, I sometimes will take a long shower.

I don't really take long showers, unless I am really tired then I just take the time to relax a bit too. I usually get in and get out in around 5 minutes.

Oh man, it takes me about 5 minutes to wash my hair! That would definitely be a short shower :)

I generally take a fairly long shower. I take mine last so as to not leave someone without hot water. I will take a shorter one if I am in a hurry though.

We have a lot of hot water, so it rarely runs out now. During the week, I'm usually rushed so I don't have time to really take a nice shower, but on the weekends I tend to stay in there longer.

I was always taught to take short showers and i havent seem to have broken the habit. I have always lived with a house full of people so long showers have never been an option. However i am getting a place all by myself so maybe i should try the long shower concept.

We had a housefull when I was growing up too, but we always seemed to take showers at different times. You should try the long shower when you have a chance, it's very relaxing!

i like long hot baths. it has a calming effect on me especially on a long day. i have time to shampoo and condition my hair and scrub my body well and hot showers make me feel clean and disinfected so i still take them on a hot weather then i just step in a cold room.

We have a hottub outside so I use that for a relaxing "bath" feeling. That is nice though, being surrounded by the warm water, just relaxing!
