  • How often do other people in other cultures bathe?

    I was curious about this.

    In the US, it is customary to bathe at least once a day... rarely do most people fail on this, and many bathe more frequently. I personally bathe once a day, almost without fail (i failed today tho). i like showers, and i usually take them in under 15 minutes. i would take them faster but im usually tired when i shower and i often blank out and stare into space and dont realize it.

    I remember reading that in Japan they usually take 3 baths a day. I personally find that kind of excessive compulsive.

    My mother told me when she lived in Europe in the '70s (in germany, tho travled around), that many women in Germany didnt shave and it was common pratice to take only one bath a week.

    Were these things true or are they still true?

    How often do people in your region bathe? how often do YOU bathe and how long does it take ya?

    I live in a desert with drought problems. One shower a week for fifteen minutes. Uses one seventh as much water as a daily shower.

          Ted: I've been using Sawfish for two years now. Unless Blackbox has better viewport handling and a scriping language (sawfish understands elisp) I probably won't switch.

              The Pretty much standard once a day (Bath 15-20 mins), apart from the rare days when I have nothing to do, and I dont end up leaving the house.

              An Evening bath can occasionally be good, but that is more for enjoyment rather than hygeine purposes.

                      AS - I can see how Showering would be more clean, however, When you live in a cool climate and are an office worker, you dont have too much 'filfth' to bath in, and it's insignificant at the temperature i have a bath.

                          Just rinse down after your bath, same thing.

                          I always take showers, I think I used my bath once or twice in four years.
