Re: How often do you shower?

I think it has more to do with "excessive cleanliness," as I have decided to call it for the purposes of this thread. In the U.S., we clean, anti-bacterialize, and de-germify everything. There's nothing wrong with being clean, and not stinking, but we have certainly taken it to an entirely new level.

I like to bathe in my own filth with bubbles! Daily, for an hour.

Yeah but half the stuff we do doesn't actually do what we think it does.

I'm definitely more towards neat freak than not. I think it's more about being particular than obsessing over cleaning. It also has to do with how easily I get sick.

I'd rather be too clean than too dirty.

As clean as I can get. Showering every morning seems sensible enough.

But I don't use Purell or any of that useless crap. Soap and water works just as well.

Whatever smells nice works form me.

ETA: As long as I don't smell like sweat, garbage or poo I am happy.

Everyday. Twice if work causes me to work up a serious sweat. Wash my hair daily, too. Bed head is too kind a phrase for what I wake up with.

Americans are kind of obsessed with cleanliness I've noticed. Not that they are cleaner in other ways, just that it seems to loom larger as Very Important than in other countries.
We don't like to stink.
You're not going to stink if you go a day without showering.
