  • Four days. I was camping. Real camping, not at a camp ground with heated showers and all that. We even had to dig a hole to poop in. We did swim alot in the river though.

  • 30 days-there I said it LOL!
    I was at an intense camp and there were no showers. I washed up in the lake though, but there were no razors, soap, deodorant or shampoo-just me and 8 other happy campers and the great outdoors:)
    This camp took place 10 years ago and to this day I still don't take showers for granted:)

  • I take a shower every 3 days in the winter time, or my skin gets horribly the end of that 3rd day I'm soooo ready for a shower...but in between showers, I wash certain areas with soap and a wash rag...I just don't take a whole shower.
    In the summer time I take one every other day unless I got all sweaty...and I do the same thing with the soap and washrag on days that I don't take showers.
    And I don't feel a bit dirty for not taking a shower everyday...I still keep myself clean & it saves tons on the water bill.

  • About one week. I had back surgery, and refused to try and attempt climbing into the bathtub, to take a shower. God forbid I should fall. Boy was I stinky when I finally did take a showe.
