Funny Question. Do you take a bath everyday?
February 20, 2009 2:00am CST
I am just wondering if you make sure that you take a bath daily. I know people who don't take a bath. Some of the hospitalized patients don't take a bath on a daily basis. The reason is they are too sick to take a bath. I met someone who used to study in Russia, she said some of her classmates don't take a bath because it's too cold and she was also warned not to take a bath because she might get colds. Some people take a bath twice a day, some thrice a day. Some are using milk for bathing also, some are putting calamansi on their water, some are putting ice, some flowers. I wonder why some don't take a bath, can't they smell themselves? It's very irritating to be with a stinking person. I wonder if they are just too lazy or maybe it's in their culture. What is your excuse?

I must admit that I dont take a bath everyday but if I am smelly I will take a bath .One thing is certain though if I goindg out I always take a bath unless I am in a haste and believe me I get very self conscious if I dont .When I dont take a bath though it is usually some extenuating circumstances like I am too tired or I am rushing to get to work but barring that I usually take at least one bath per day.I dont take a bath with anything other than the usual water and soap ,none of the things that you have mentioned

Good point! seems you have enumerated the reasons why people don't take a bath, People have their own style on how and when they need to clean themselves, as long as they don't stink, there are some people who take a bath like twice a day but the perfume that they use is so irritating, would you consider yourselves be near that person. Remember, even if you don't take a bath everyday as long as you know what proper hygiene is, I think people will still like you....Like me for example i don't take a bath if I am not feeling well specially if I have influenza because it may lead to a complication and I don't want to be hospitalize.....

haha it caught my attention :P really funny! LOL ;) well it depends :D as u've said when we are ill we can't take a bath but in a daily routines and if we don't have reasons why not to take a shower/bath why shouldn't have one :D actually we can't blame them haha just kidding for me we have to take a bath in a daily basis and yes some are having twice a day. there's also a case to case basis i myself sometimes just took a half bath if i just stayed at home and not having so much dirt :D having a proper hygiene is very important and some have "rituals" on taking good care of themselves :D nice discussion janelacson ;) Godabless!0=)

Hi there janelacson! I live in a place where it is practically cold all year long. It is cold especially from November to early March and the coldest is sometime February to early March. Despite cold weather, I make sure that I take a bath everyday. It's something I can't leave home without doing. If I go somewhere hot or humid, I would surely take a bath at least twice a day.

I bath/shower 1-2 times a day. There is nothing like being clean and smelling fresh. I cannot stand feeling sweaty and sticky. Once in the am and usually again before bed. When my water broke, I had to have a bath first before going to the hospital.

Yes irrespective of the weather i bath 2 times daily, otherwise i feel i am smelling bad, our city is normally hot. i use water at normal temperature, add little rose water at times, i apply turmeric paste and sandal wood paste on my body.. People sick in hospital may/may not bath, it depends.. thanks for this discussion.

I always take a bath everyday, it just feels sticky and you can get stinky if you dont take a bath. Others dont like taking a bath like my cousin who's 12 years old who takes a bath every other day because according to him, the water is just cold!

lol that's an interesting question... XD But kind of intimate, too... No, I don't take a bath everyday, shocking, right?:O lol I don't understand why people generalize baths with hygiene problems... if you don't bath everyday it doesn't mean you're not clean. I don't need to shower everyday because I don't have smelling or sweating problems... God I change clothes many times a day, I like to stay clean all the time, I have a very good hygiene, I just don't shower everyday because of many reasons. The most important one if that I have a bad immune system...:( For example I can never take a shower in the morning if I have to go out that day. I always take showers in the evening, so that I can spend at least 12 hours until I get out of the house. I catch colds really fast... It doesn't matter how cold or hot it is outside, it's just the way my organism works I guess. Another reason is the one I mentioned above - I don't need to. If I would go to the gym everyday then yeah I would probably shower everyday, too, but if I don't have such an active lifestyle it doesn't seem necessary. And the last reason would be lack of time... I usually get caught up with other things I have to do and either forget or never get the change to take a shower.

I take bath everyday, either it is winter of summer here in my city. I take bath early in the morning to freshen myself up. Actually, taking bath shakes me up from my overnight laziness and lathergy and rejuvenates me. When I take showers, water work as an analgesic on my entire body and brings liveliness in me. If any day I am unable to take bath, I feel very bad and lazy. I just cannot take the luxury of taking bath with flowers or ice. Flowers are too expensive for me to enjoy the luxury of bathing.

Funny answer. NO. Of course I do take a bath everyday. I wouldn't want to stink. Yes I know people who don't take baths everyday too but those belong in places where it is cold and you hardly perspire and so you won't stink. I am in a hot and humid place and you can start wishing for a bath as soon as you get out of one lol.

I do take a bath everyday. In fact, I take a bath twice a day. One in the morning before I go to work and one in the evening before I go to bed. I really feel uncomfortable if I don't take a bath. I also cannot sleep if I don't take a bath in the evening. As you can see, it is very hot here in our country. So you really sweat a lot and I feel very sticky and somewhat feel some itching.

for me, im sure i take a bath daily. except if i have my period, i do half bath (i dont wash my head). well, i knew some people who doesnt want to take a bath for 1. its cold, especially in the morning, 2. they have their period ( for the ladies)till now i dont know the scientific explanation why ladies do not take a bath during their periods. Yes true to some, they take a bath twice a day especially in places having warm climate. I know some, even they take a bath so many times a day they still stinks, maybe because of body chemistry, whatsoever... :)
