who takes baths

This is another one of my weird questions, but who still takes baths every once and a while?

I have a tub, and some times itís relaxing, but I am too big for the tub. That got me thinking ďare there bigger tubs"? Then I thought do older people (like between 18 and 35) who still take baths? I donít know why it matters to me I just like to know that I am not the only one...lol

Yes, there are bigger tubs than the standard 5 footers. Wider/deeper ones also.
Many people take baths for relaxing. Age has nothing to do with it. (and 18 to 35 is NOT old)
I personally prefer showers over baths. I don't like looking at the dirt that came off me floating in the water and realizing that at least some of it is still on me when I exit the tub. If I take a bath, I take a shower after it.
FYI : William Howard Taft, 15th President of the U.S., had a larger tub installed in the White House because he was so large he got stuck in the existing one.

If 35 is old I must be ancient - don't tell my wife, I'm trying to convince her I'm still young

I can't remember the last time I sat in a tub, I prefer showers.

I'm right there w/Majakdragon. Don't like seeing the dirty nasty stuff floating in the tub and I'm sitting or laying in the tub w/it. Gross. I haven't tooken a bath for a very long time. I prefer showers.

Though, the thought of taking a bubble bath (or just laying there) in very warm water when you feel extremely sick or just need to relax sounds good. I've always wanted to do that but I don't like my tub so I just don't do it. Waiting to get a bigger and better and nicer one. Ooooh, that'll be the day!

My son who's 10 prefers showers too.

Majak & DIY, if you do it more than once a month there isn't NEARLY as much stuff floating around in the water.

But thanks for sticking up for those of us older [in some cases a LOT older] than 35.

TOOKEN????? HEE HEE HA HA! thanks, that cracked me up!

they say you actually get cleaner taking a bath versus showering - something about soaking the skin helps it exfoliate more or something.....?? but i prefer showers, too. they seem quicker & easier.

I have a jetted tub. Turn the hot water on as hot as you can stand it and it's massages away all those aches and pains. After a half hour of that I take a shower to get clean.

I occasionally take a bath to soak away tired muscles - hot (110 degrees) water, no bubbles. I shower off afterward, I never feel clean coming out of the tub.

I have a scientific thermometer I use. 110 is pretty hot, most people would say too hot. I ran a gym years ago and the city we were in had an ordinance that the whirlpool had to be less than 104 degrees (that's also why I have the thermometer).

Showers all the way. Other than for the occasional injury or surgery, I haven't bathed in years.

35 is old? Maybe thats right............... When I turned 50 I told people I'm now closer to 70 than to thirty

Growing up, I always had it in my mind that 50 was old. I had a sudden realization when I was 34 that I was more than 2/3 of the way to 50. I didn't feel old at 34, so suddenly 50 wasn't so bad.

Yup!

I'm 18 going on 19 and I definitely still take an occasional bath. If I'm stressed out or have reading to do for a class, sitting and reading (or just relaxing in some scented candles) in the water can be soooo relaxing. Of course, I usually follow it up with a brief shower.
