  • If I take a bath, its to relax not get clean. Sometimes I empty the tub then shower, sometimes I just get out of the tub and curl up in bed.

  • If I take a bath I always rinse off under the shower before getting out because I just don't feel like I get clean in the bath.

  • When I take a bath I follow up with a shower rinse. Taking a tub bath does leave soapy residue and dirt particles on you, but much more diluted than before. Then when you rub dry with a towel, you are getting off even more suds and dirt particles. So you are much cleaner than before, just not as clean as if you'd let water pour over your and the particles and soap go down the drain.

  • I haven't taken a bath in so I save my actual "washing" for a quick shower after the bath.

  • i dont take baths i feel like im swimming in my own dirt not to mention my 3 year olds ( he wont shower yet ) and i scrub my tub once a week. but i just cant do baths if i want to sit and relax then after my shower i sit in the tub and let the shower water just run off my body nice and hot its so calming.

  • Thats why I dont take baths unless Im doing it for pure relaxation.

  • I never take baths. But if I did, it probably wouldn't be to get clean.

  • I take a shower after I take a bath. I take baths for relaxation only. When you take a bath, you sit in the dirty water.

  • I use the bath as a way to relax and soak my sorry bones. I take showers to get clean.
