    Couldn't go a day without showering, my children are also bathed daily without fail. We all shower or bath before bed every single day even if we are home very very late.

    I blow my nose every morning in the shower and let the water wash it away. The steam loosens up the boogies.
    I don't feel completely refreshed until I do it.
    I'm guilty of this too. As long as the boogies wash away, I don't see what's so bad about it?

    Apparently because it's sticky it can get stuck in the pipes or whatever. I think some people take it a little too seriously. Plus, Draino exists, so there's that.

    Lol this is the weirdest thing I've ever heard... Snot getting stuck in the pipes?? I doubt that is possible, the amount of water from the shower is about a thousand times more than what would come out of a persons nose.

    Those were my thoughts.

    Twice a day, sometimes three. If I plan on going for a walk with the girls in the morning I wait until after that. I've never dry skin issues, except for my hands, but I'm a little obsessive about washing them. A PP mentioned that they get back into the same clothes but clean underwear, I can't do that either - always a fresh set of underwear and clothes!

    I shower twice a day in summer and at least once a day in winter (twice depending on how much baby related substances I'm covered in!!). If I don't shower at night before going to bed in winter, I always wash my feet to make sure they're clean before getting between the sheets

    I wash my hair every 3rd day as it's naturally curly and what would be considered "normal" in terms of condition/scalp etc so it doesn't need daily washing. I bath and wash DD's hair every second day and have done that since she was born as baby/infants skin are quite sensitive therefore not requiring a bath every day. Of course if she's had some kind of explosion from one of her orifices, she goes in for a bath!! I "top and tail" her on alternative days After her 1st birthday as she becomes more mobile and eats a wider range of food more often (thus getting dirtier by the end of the day) I'll start bathing her nightly.

    I absolutely have to have a shower/bath (mainly showers) every single day or I feel dirty and unkempt. I don't know why it makes me feel that way, it just does plus I love how clean and fresh I feel afterwards as well

    ETA- ALWAYS clean undies and clothes.

    Another every day person. I work in a factory - I shower every night after dinner (in a shuffle of dh & the kids too, one gets out, one gets in, lol).

    I shower twice a day. Normally after breakfast then get dressed and get on with my day. Then right before bed. I love the feeling of sliding into bed all clean and smelling pretty. My morning shower is usually quite short as 5 people need to bathe, but by my night shower the kids are in bed and I stay in there until the hot water runs out lol

    It's definitely not poor hygiene to shower once every second or third day - totally depends where you live/how dirty you get/ how oily your skin is/lifestyle. 2 of my besties shower three times a week (max) and they are perfectly beautiful, clean and healthy people. They think I'm gross for wearing the same outfit a few days in a row. Everyone's just got different needs and lifestyle influences I think.
