  • I've showered w/ no hot water, it sucks, but sometimes you just HAVE to get clean. This was 2004, when that string of hurricanes hit Fl, we lost power for 4 days. There was still water in the tank, so we could shower, but there was no electricity to heat it. After about 3 days of no power, open windows, and lots and lots of humidity, I was rank and had to take a shower. It wasn't plesent, but it got me clean.

  • Shower. Immersing myself in a bath would definitely be worse.

  • Shower for sure. I have had many cold showers due to power outages/low water advisories-no water or being a camp.

  • I don't think I could sit in a bath of cold water. I would have to go with shower. It would not be pleasant but it would at least be a way to get clean.
