Body hygiene- Which is healthier and cleaner: shower or bath?

 

And the victor is.....SHOWERS!

If we're talking purely about cleanliness, I have to believe that showers would be better than baths, as a general rule. After reading this request, I decided to do a quick google search and found opinions on both sides of the debate. On one hand, when you take a bath, you can completely immerse yourself in the water, which inevitably makes it easier to get filth out of places where, well, the sun doesn't shine. Those spots may not be so easy to reach when you're trying to get yourself clean in the shower. So in that regard, a bath could be superior. But here's the rub. Where does all the filth go? That's right, into the very water that your hairy butt is sitting. So how clean are you getting? That's why I would presume that a shower would be more hygienic than a bath, because a nice warm bath can quickly become a cesspool, depending upon how dirty the body is and how long the body remains in the bath.

I always rinse in the shower after a bath.

What I like to do is take a shower, I wash my hair then, because I have thining hair, & in a bath it would float everywhere.  I put my hair in a ponytail.  Make sure my body is super clean, and then fill the tub up for a bubble bath and hot soak while I read a book.  So I do both.
