How Long Have You Gone Without Showering?

It’s a stinky subject, but somebody has to bring it up. What’s the longest period of time you’ve gone without showering?

I have a couple of friends who don’t believe in having water touch their bodies on the weekend. Ew! Personally the thought of that has always kind of grossed me out.

I say showering every day is a must.

I’m a runner. If I didn’t shower after a long run each time, I’m pretty sure the paint in my house would start peeling off the walls at some point.

Let’s face it, we’ve all been around people who get a little “ripe” at times, if you will, and it’s never a pleasant experience. Especially when you have to work next to one of those individuals, for say 8 hours a day!

Hello! Can I get you a little Right Guard over there Eddie? Please!

I’m learning that I might be in the minority when it comes to daily showers however.

According to a recent study, half of the people surveyed admitted at one point they’ve gone three or more days without showering. And when it comes to personal hygiene habits in the shower, the survey also found the spot on your body that you’re most likely to give a thorough cleaning to, is under your armpits.  You’re least likely to wash behind your ears.

60% of us try to use every single drop of shampoo or body wash before we toss the bottle too.

Now getting back to the subject of bathing each day. You wash your hands multiple times throughout the day, (I hope?) Please say yes, if you’re the guy that made my lunch today. So shouldn’t you really be cleaning your body once a day too? I really don’t think that’s too much to ask.
