    Showers for every day, but I also love a long hot bubble bath for relaxation.

    I prefer showers. The heat and gentle massage help to alleviate my chronic neck and back pain, and my allergy-prone kitties like the steam. :)

    Alas, I have no choice now that I live in an apartment with only a shower. Still, I do miss a long soak in the tub with company.

    Why do you like to watch me bathe .jpg

    Showers for me. I honestly don't remember the last tub bath I had. Plus now, if I got down there, I might need help to get out. :crackup:

    Showers, but I do love a nice bath if I'm not feeling well. The only thing I hate about having a bath is that I have to crank my neck at a weird angle if I want to lie down in our tub. All tubs should have a sloped part to rest your head.

    Usually showers, but every now and then I get in the mood for a bath.

    I don't like baths. I take showers but I do have to sit in a chair while I take one. I can only stand for a few minutes.

    I'm right there with you, Muffy. Had to have the chair after my surgery and still can't balance well on two feet.

    I much prefer showers. They are quicker, and I don't end up sitting in cold water.

    I like showers in the warm weather but love my baths in winter. A glass of wine, a good book and plenty of bubbles. And of course the mandatory cat balancing on the brim. Bliss for me

    I'm definitely a shower person. I don't like sitting in soapy, dirty water. Also, like the others, it's too hard to get up and down with my rebuilt (not replaced) knees. Plus I'm a wide body and might get stuck. The fire department would have to bring in a crane.

    I have a bath chair and a shower wand. It's easy to wash my hair with it. My other half now uses the chair, too. It makes showering really comfortable.

    I love long, boiling hot showers. A hot, powerful jet is bliss for me. If the water stops boiling, it's getting cold. I'll stay in the spray until the water heater gives up.

    Showers in the summer, baths in the winter.

    Nothing like soaking in a hot tub and watching the snow fall outside.

    showers. I am with @Mother Dragon. I hate baths. Hate being cold because my tub is not long enough to actually lay down and my waterheater is only 40 gallons-only enough to fill tub halfway with water before it gets cold. And although I love swimming in lakes. rivers. oceans. I can't stand baths..go figure. I have a wand shower and it helps to get soap out of my hair and clean the walls with-since we have iron rich water-it stains red. So I need the shower wand to do the job. I don't have a chair yet and Jon said no way in H e double hockey stick but if he needs one I will get one.

    Showers. I would love to take a nice hot soak in a tub, but I don't have the time.

    Plus, the last time I took a bath, I was lying there relaxing and saw a cat hair floating. It turned me off for baths and I've not had one since. I try to keep cat hair down to minimum; I swear I do. But I'm outnumbered. The whole thing skeeved me out.
