Question of the day Jan 24th

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Today's question is this:

Bath or shower which do you prefer?

For the most part I am a shower person with the occasional bubble bath thrown in just for relaxation.

Bath. To me, "shower" says "truck stop" or otherwise on the road. "Bath" says home.

And we do have a big Jacuzzi bath, so it's real luxury (compared to such things as the garage apartment I lived in at one time, or the houses without plumbing).

Well that's a whole different ball game, if I had a Jacuzzi tub I would never leave the bathroom.......

Baths sound good sometimes, but the reality never seems to live up to my expectations. I slide too far down in the tub, my hands get wet and soak the book I'm reading, I'm constantly adjusting the water temperature because it's too hot / too cold, etc. Within 10 minutes I'm usually over it and ready to get out. And there's also, to me, the 'Ick' factor of lying in water with the same dirt I just washed off my body.

It's a moot point right now in any case. I only have a shower stall in my apartment, so no baths for me.

Me too. I do love to have a nice soaky bubble bath with candles and a glass of wine to unwind, but only occasionally. Even then I have to shower afterward to feel properly clean.

I Love a shower, and prefer our hot tub as opposed to a bath, then I can look at the stars

I love a good long jacuzzi bath, but it is a MUST that I take a shower afterwards.

shower, definitely shower. I feel like I'm sitting in dirty water when I take a bath.

I love baths, but haven't had a decent sized tub to take one in in years. There's nothing relaxing about a little tub.
My problem with showers stems from my NCS plus heat making it worse - I get very lightheaded and can't raise my arms up for risk of fainting. I still take them but have to be quick and wash my hair leaning over the tub. That and I hate the feeling of water on my face.

Shower. I only take a bath to relax, not to actually get clean. I don't feel that you would get clean in a bath, since you are washing with already dirty water. It doesn't make sense to me. I haven't taken baths to get clean since I was 4 years old.

I have both a shower and separate from that I have a large bathtub that is a Jacuzzi. I start the water in the Jacuzzi and while it is filling, I take a shower, getting totally clean. By the time I am done, the tub is ready to jump in. That I do, adding some bubble bath. When I am done, the Jacuzzi is perfectly clean because I never get in it when dirty.

Since I get up at 5am on weekday mornings, I take showers. If it's been a hard day, I come home and take a nice and relaxing bath. Sometimes I just take one because it's just easier to shave in the bath than the shower.

I shower, but like a bubble bath a few times a month - and then I shower after my bath

Shower for cleaning, bath for relaxation -- but it's eons since I've actually done that.

I'm a shower girl.

I prefer showers but I had my first bath in over a year last night!

I prefer bathtubs, but I shower in the morning (to "wake up"--I don't need that morning cup of coffee to wake up; I need a bath/shower), and take a bubble-bath before bed (yes, I know that you're wondering what I do in bed overnight that gets me so dirty! ). I have always had lower back problems and sciatica; and suffer from insomnia. I find that a soak in a hot bath helps both. If I go more than 2-3 days without a soak, I feel it in my lower back.

I admit it, I have always enjoyed bathing. I'm lucky to have my own bathroom, so I have decorated sort of girly in style--more luxe than frilly. I even have a half-round metal scroll-work table under the window, beside the tub, so I can stack my books, etc. there while in the tub, and I also have one of those bridge things that goes across the tub, so you can read a book while bathing! I even thought about putting a tiny TV in there...maybe that's going TOO far?

When I don't feel good, bubble baths! Otherwise I like to take LONG hot showers.
