  • 20 minutes because it takes forever to rinse out my hair.
    I take a shower at least once a day, but prefer to take one twice a day - morning and evening.

  • 5 minutes if I don't need to wash my hair or shave; 10 minutes if I wash my hair and shave my armpits; 15 if I shave my legs, too.

  • I don't really shower I rather take a bathe cause I like to relax without kids and read a book lol...That is the only break I get is when I am in the bath at night. So I usually take anywhere from 15 minutes to a half hour depends on how into my book I am lol......I take a bath every single night. I only wash my hair once maybe 2 times a week cause I have super thick hair and I have to put it up in a pony tail until it drys so when I was my hair I bathe in the morning. Also if it is my time of the month I bathe in the morning until I am off cause I just feel dirty lol but other than that I bathe at night. Oh noone is home if I bathe in the mornings so that bath is usually my shortest bath 10 minutes lol

  • About 10 mins. but I take lots of baths, too. I shower everyday but only wash my very thick/coarse hair about 3X a week.

  • Showers take at least 10 minutes every morning after the older kids have left for school. I will even get up in the middle of the night to take a nice hot bubble bath. Baths can last any where from a 1/2 hour to a whole hour. I have been know to rerun the hot water to warm up the bath water to make it last longer. Oh yeah I also bring in my book and light candles. I do this at least once a week so I have total me time, it's worth the lost sleep.

  • I watched a movie one time (the original Cheaper by the Dozen ) where the father bathed and timed it. He structured the baths to where it was efficient (time wise and hygenically) When there are a dozen folks in the house I can see why he did that. Oh, those movies were based on a true story btw. Anyway, he determined you could get a productive and clean bath using his method in less than 3 minutes. He even demonstrated. Ok now to answer your question, if I leave the house I take a shower every day. If not, it's every other day since I think washing all the time washes away natural oils. My showers are from 3-7 min depending on if I shave.
