Ya know, I shower like every two or three days, but I never feel dirty. I think I have more of a Euro attitude about it all.

I must have a Euro attitude as well. I only shower when I need to get out of the house (never more than once a day). Which is only on workdays, and whenever I want to go out on the weekend. I like to be unwashed more. My skin feels better and less irritated.

I agree, Ice Queen. my skin feels better when it's not drying out all the time from soaps. But I live in Arizona, where it's dry dry dry. My skin would crack if I showered every day. Now, my husband LOVES showering, and sometimes he does it 2 times a day. BUT he also slathers lotion all over his body after every time, plus before he goes to bed. I can't be bothered. Maybe it's because I am of Italian descent.

BTW, I love baths. But not for cleaning, moslty for relaxing and thinking.

I need a shower everyday to feel normal. I am a fan of squeaky clean, all over. I am not into the natural aroma thingie, really. I think females and uncircumsized males , both of whom are susceptible to infection, really should wash, RINSE, and dry thoroughly every day. Sorry, am I being horribly graphic?? I can take b.o. to a certain extent, but I really don't want to crawl in bed next to someone and smell their butt. lolol! Sorry, again, but it's true...

I have to shower everyday...preferably at night before I go to bed. I find that I sleep so much better after a hot shower (even though the water dries out my skin).

Also, my 10 year old son definitely sweats and absolutely hates to bathe/shower/wash-up. My daughter (under 3) likes to take 2-3 baths a day! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Well, inreferance to water on the surface of the body everyday, I look at it like this. I break it down into 3 catagorys.

1.Bath=When I want to get away from the rest of the house/world and housework.

2.Shower=When I am in a hurry for work.

3.Ho-Bath=When my daughter is in the bathroom that has the shower, mine off the bedroom does not. That's when I wash all over, at my sink, once with soapy cloth, then rinse, then dry off. All three are followed with lotions and oils, I have dry skin. I do at least one of these a day, and not to long, I also have reoccurring Eczema.

I never heard the term ho-bath. I like the idea though. Sometimes I just wash my hair in the sink, if I am in a hurry or don't feel like a whole shower.

I like to wash my hair in the sink also - wrap it in a towel followed by lazing in the tub. Our tub here in The Netherlands is narrower than the USA and it doesn't take long to fill up.

BTW as a child we had a well in the country and had the Saturday night bath thing - first I used the water, than my sister, than my brother.

In summer, we were sent down to the river's edge with a bar of ivory soap. lol

As to the term "ho-bath", my girlfriend and I made it up long time ago when we spent the night at one anothers apartment to go shopping the next morning.

At the time we only each had one bathroom, one would have to wait.

One day we decided that one would take a shower and the other would use the sink.

I shortened the spelling of the term as not to be crud, get it.
