    Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I have always had this thing about bathtubs and sitting in your own juices. It’s crazy but I don’t even give my kids bath, I give them showers. So,which do you prefer, baths or showers?

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I only bathe when I am so tired and want to relax put the music on and candle lights and just turn of the light and no one come bother me which is maybe once or twice a month. I prefer to shower on a daily basis. Easier to clean the bathroom. But if I have the time and money for expensive electric and water I would prefer bathing.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I prefer showering, it is faster. I do take baths occasionally and find I never want to get out! I'm usually so tired that I have a hard time making myself stand up again.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I prefer showers, its faster. But if anyone needs to relax i guess a bath would be a great idea.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    Educateme, I am always amazed how alike we actually think. It cracks me up. I hate baths for the same eason ou do. How can I be clean, if I'm sitting in my own filth?!

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I always take a shower, simply because it is faster. However, there is definitely validity to the point of filthy water in a bath tub. My niece sometimes plays outside and gets very dirty. I have actually begun giving her baths at my house because I noticed how dirty the water was she was sitting in. After a full day of playing, that water was absolutely nasty.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    Baths are relaxing but I haven't had one in a couple of years at least. It is true that it is gross that you are floating in your own... well juices like educateme says it!

    I take a shower everyday and prefer it to a bath just because it is quicker and more convenient.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I rarely, if ever take baths mostly because of the idea that sitting in your own "juices" is quite awkward and disgusting. I always take showers because I see that you can become cleaner faster and that showers don't take up much time. If I really want to relax, I usually lay on my bed. I like the pillows. ^_^

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I personally take showers. Its a lot faster than sitting in a tub of water. My youngest daughter just recently started taking showers.She was getting urinary tract infections since she ws 5. They were bad. Now we realize that she was still getting them because of bath. So, I strongly recommend that females take showers daily instead of baths for proper cleansing.Proper hygiene is important for a healthy U!

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    Great question. I actually was JUST now talking about that. I haven't taken a bath for a long time (for myself, before was for an infection) and I usually just take showers, but tonight I was just so worn out that I decided to take a bath it was really relaxing and helped me out alot. But normally showers are nice and easy for me. But like tonight I took a bath to relax then rinsed in the shower afterwards for a few minutes and to wash my hair.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    Ewwwww educateme...... the way you put it "sitting in your own juices" that makes me not ever want to take a bath again lol.

    I can never find the time to take a bath so I guess showers, but if I had the time a bath sounds great just not everyday.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I take a shower every day, but if I am stressed or I have a backache, I take a bath with epsom salt. After I have spent a good amount of time falling asleep while soaking in my own juices, I immediately stand up and turn on the shower.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I strongly prefer showers to baths. When you take a shower, you get cleaner than you would in a bath. Now I do occasionaly take a bath with oil and salts and such, but as soon as I am done, I immediately take a full shower to clean off. Daily baths might be okay for babies, but for anyone older than that, they should take a shower.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    It all depends what kind of shape my body's in for example if I just got off work i take a bath to relax. say if I was getting up to go to school I would take a shower to wake me up.

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    Showers for sure. I love singing a good country song while scrubbin down with some Axe Shower gel!!!!! ahh refreshing :)

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    Showering is faster and more...ahem, efficient.

    Plus, I share a bathroom with my brother, so I definitely do not want to be sitting in anything with his nasty germs all over it. =) I want to get in and out as fast as I can so my body doesn't absorb his ick. =)

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I'm all about taking a hot bath then when I'm done soaking I just Hit the Shower switch and rinse off allof the bath gunk!

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    I must say, that some of the answers I find amusing. I'm a mom of four; I find it hard to find time to take baths because of time constraints. Although, being a Massage Therapist and being involved in the Health & Wellness field, I know that baths are not only relaxing, but therapeutic. Water itself is therapeutic, for hundreds and thousands of years people have been submerging their bodies in bodies of water. They find that hot tubs/cold springs are great for you, they have been revered as sacred healing retreats for centuries. How dirty can you be, when you take baths/ showers every day?? Unless you don't take a bath/shower for weeks, I say: enjoy life's little pleasures and stop being so squeamish, there are worst things out there, then your own bodily fluids. I think your kids, don’t think about all the bacteria in the water from there on little bodies, they just know there having fun an it feels really good.

    SINGING IN THE SHOWER

    I've done the MATH.
    To take a BATH

    takes less water,
    than a SHOWER.
    (Unless its hotter/
    or takes an HOUR.)

    A hot aquatic rub
    makes the day COMPLETE.
    But I don't fit in my tub,
    I am over six FEET!!!

    Re: Do you prefer baths or showers?

    Personally, I prefer showers. They are quicker and they wake me up in the morning. But if I am sore from a game or after running, I will take an occasional bath.
