  • 3 days when I was camping. I shower every night before bed, but I don't always use soap. There's just no reason. It dries out your skin and is just one more batch of chemicals that you don't need. I use soap about every 2-3 nights unless I do something physical of course. I wash my hair about that often too, but I have very thick hair so shampooing every day turns me into a frizzy mess.

  • Four days when I was in pre-term labor in 1990. I was in the hospital and they wouldnt let me out of the bed. I did get sponge baths though.
