Funny Question. Do you take a bath everyday?

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.....

I DO take a bath daily. I can't go to school nor go with my friends without taking a bath. Maybe, people won't take a bath because they have a phobia in water, or just maybe they are insane?! hehe

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 take baths everyday. Sometimes when I'm running late in the morning I would have to skip taking a bath. But I would usually take them at night so I can be ready in the morning.

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.

Really funny questions I take bath everyday but you are right some patient dont take bath daily. Because their bathroom is also not clean and Dr. warned them dont take bath because of illness.

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... :)
