  1. Nahhh … couldn't go to bed all dirty!!! But then we have a climate that makes us a little more sweaty and stinky … maybe if I lived somewhere where it was bitterly cold for a few months of the year ??? I still think I'd shower thought because I like the feeling of getting into fresh sheets all clean and smelling sweetly.

  2. There are days when I don't have a shower – more in winter than summer I admit. Like Kerry says, it get's awfully hot and sweaty here! But we are also on water restrictions, and so I sometimes get in really quickly – don't wash the hair, just a quick blast to wash away the day.

  4. Hmmm, to be honest I am one of "the great unwashed" myself! I shower every other day and wash my hair every other day as well. I live in a very cold climate so I don't think I smell (hopefully one of my dearest would tell me!) I find my skin and hair do stay much softer this way. Though to be honest, in the summer I will shower up to 3 times a day (I feel awful admitting THAT waste of resources) but I can't stand being hot and sweaty and I feel that since we don't have a pool, it somehow balances out my indulgence…

  6. Hi Alison, I read that in Darla Shine's book too and thought it rather interesting. I think I am probably over the top, but I have to wash my hair every day. Just do not feel the same if it is not washed and I just do not feel ready to face the day if I do not have a shower. Also pretty hot down here too, so might make a difference. Nothing wrong with not having a shower or bath. I think my Dad said they used to have a shower in the country once a week and the four kids would all use the same water and because he was the oldest, he was last! Yuck! Goes with being poor I suppose. Everybody has their little luxury I suppose and that is mine.

  7. In summer a shower a day is essential here, but honestly I will often go a day (in extreme cases two!) without a shower in winter. Even my summer showers are rather quick and my hair can wait a day or two to be washed. I think there are lots of women who do this – sometimes having a shower takes effort and if we aren't really that dirty what's the point? Hehe. Although I'll never admit this to my friends. =)

  9. How do all you mothers MANAGE to shower regularly? My greatest luxury at the moment is finding the time for a shower – normally I have to trap the Minx in her cot and shower quickly to the accompaniment of shouting – not very conducive to relaxation and peaceful thoughts.

  11. sorry, but I shower everyday. I,like most australians,like to go to bed clean after a stinking hot day. Nothing like getting out of the shower and straight into bed.

  12. Hi Paola, When I had my first child I read that having a shower would be the only time of luxury you would have to yourself. I thought how ridiculous, but soon realised that was so true!

  14. Yes Paola … that's what my showers are like each and every day … and the reason I no longer even try to have a long luxuriating bath … It's bound to be interrupted! I can't even go to the toilet without prying eyes or a mini Spanish inquisition. I said I shower every day … I didn't say it is luxurious or relaxing *_* Just servicing a need to feel clean and somewhat refreshed.

  16. I too am one of the great unwashed masses. I shower typically every-other day though in the winter I've been known to skip two days. Maybe it is a climate thing, but I have incredibly dry skin, so if I were to shower everyday I would turn into sandpaper. And that's in a city that regularly hits 90% humidity.
    When I lived in Colorado, the arid environment was so hard on me I would have a bloody nose at least once a week.
    I can't imagine showering/bathing everyday just for that reason. Which reminds me to go lotion my hands again – they are starting to hurt from being too dry.
