How long do you take a bath?

March 27, 2009 3:38am CST
When I was a little child I like bathing with my little friends in the river in my hometown.We bath a time even more everyday in the summer to keep our body clean.However,I will bath per week because the temperture is low and the shower in our department isn't enough.If you want to shower,you have to wait a long time in the winter.So I feel inconvenient to bath everyday.Besides,the shower always broken without anyone touching it. What about you?

nice topic, i gave time bathing like 30 minutes or more than that, why? it is because i have lots of routine doing inside the bathroom. ohhhh.. what are those? LOL like, im using 3 kinds of body soap, first one is for whitening, second is for for moisturizer, and the 3rd is the body wash. whew, thats why i stayed more time taking a bath,.. and im enjoying of what iam doing.

Your shower procedure is complex.I only use soap for bath.First,I dip my body with water and then brush the whole body,second,use soap clean my body.That's all.I think your approch would make your body more clean and fresh.

Wha. It is kind of shocking to know that people have different habit of taking shower. I have to take shower everyday, mostly once in a day (sometimes twice). I live in tropical country where the sun really shine and give the heat. Plus, I am an active person who have a lot of activities. This can cause me sweating or dealing with dirt. So, like it or not, I have to take shower everyday in order to clean up the dirt and sweat. Oh, it only takes me 5-10 minutes for having shower.

Like you when I was a child I used to go in a river with my friends and my younger brother.There we swim for hours together.That was a small town. Now every day I bath under shower.If I don't bath I feel uneasy.In the winter I bath with hot water.In our country winter is not so cold.

You're lucky for warm winters.I couldn't bear the cold temperture and I had to wear lots of clothes to keep warm.

I can relate to that. I remember wen I was still a child, we take a bath at the river near us. The water of the river is warm and I really missed it since we moved to a more elevated place in our town. Anyway, my answer to you question is about 20 minutes or more. It is because I usually can finish about four songs while taking a shower bath.

For me this depends on why I am bathing. Sometimes I will fill the tub up with very hot water to relax after a stressful day, or a good workout. At these times I will sit in the water for up to 40 minutes. When I am bathing just for the sake of getting clean. It will take a maximum of 10 minutes, including shaving and brushing my teeth.

I shower every day, and in summer 2 or 3 times a day, I live in Australia so summers can be very hot, but if I want a relaxing time I will have a bath but not for an hour, too boring,

I think so.When I was a child,I also thought bath is boring and even hated.My mother said if she asked me to take a bath,I would be extremely offensive and even cry.But now I like bath.

When I take bath, the time it will take me to finish depends on the appointment where Im going. If I will go for a date, it usually take me 30 minutes in the shower but when Im not going anywhere or just taking a bath just for hygiene purpose ii will only take me 5 minutes in the shower.

I live in a department hired by my company.There are a lot of my workmates take a bath everyday and I have to wait a long time until there are few people bath.So I'm tired of waiting and didn't bath at last.

We have water restrictions at the moment after being in drought for a long time. Everyone is very careful not to use too much water, so my daily shower is very quick. If I get the chance to have a bath (it's a rare luxury), then I will stay in for absolutely as loooooonnnnnggg as possible!!

I bath daily or twice a day unless I don't work out. If I work out I pretty much have too. I find it an inconvience too though. In fact. I really hate to shower, and I never take baths because I get bored. Washing my hair is even worse; I hate washing my hair with a passion so I only do it about twice a week, even if it's sweaty or looks terrible. Not washing my hair when I bath definitely makes it easier and a lot less hassles.

Me, uhmm, it would take me around 30 minutes to take a bath. And since it is very hot here these days, I would take a bath more than once.

Hi,minniemadz.I tink I also take a bath more than once if it is in the summer.

Hi there ritefangfanglilian, It's 30 minutes for me... tops! I may be OC, but even if I'm in a hurry, bath time still takes about that much. Often times, when it's summer (like here in the Phiilippines, it's scourging hot already, I usually take a bath twice in a day; one in the morning and a calming shower before I retire at night.
• China

I think 30 minutes is just ok for most people.In a hot temperature,people will sweat a lot,so bath twice a day is not much.Happy mylot.

hi there my answer would surprise you.i took my bath for 1 1/2 hour or so especially if it's hot.the reason for this is that i do all the things when i am in the bathroom,first of i would brush my teeth first then i will use the toilet to get rid of my vowels and after that i will be in the shower room.i rarely use the bath tub for bathing i use a dipper and a pail lols...=) i shampoo my hair, apply soap on my whole body and then rinse .,i apply conditioner on my hair and i apply soap again on my whole body and then wash my face with facial wash and then rinse and the last thing i would do is to clean a girls' private part with a feminine hygiene and rinse ..that's how i bathe...=)

When i used to go to work i used to take bath everyday.IF the climate is very hot then i take bath everyday.If i am not feeling well then i take bath once or twice a week.In my native place when it becomes rainy season i will stand in the compound and have bath.Here the climate is never very low only hot.Some people take bath two times a day or even four times a day.

I try not to stay long in the bath. It would cause my fingers to wrinkle up. I love to relax in the bath and take in the quiet sounds of the apt. But,not to the point I could fall asleep in the tub.

I don't have a bath, we only have a shower in our bathroom, but I take showers more in the summer because its hot and its a good way to cool yourself off. It takes me about 15 mins to take a shower, sometimes it feels good and warm and I don't want to get out..lol.
