    aside- I've been called out for using words like fortnight and elope IRL. these aren't complex SAT words, and just because your dumbass friends don't use them or you don't hear them on tv (which is made for said dumbass friends) doesn't mean I can't.

    It's a matter of principle, I guess.

    I shower every day. I have longish hair and I've been told not to do this, but even after one day my hair is super oily. Hell, I can wash it at night before I go to bed and it will be oily in the morning.

    You should at least jump in the shower and wash your hair, junk, ass, and armpits. The four essentials. It takes 5 minutes at best and you'll still feel clean. Mostly. You still need to periodically scrub away the slurry of oil, bacteria, and dead skin off of your other parts.

    Deciding whether to shower or not based on how much you sweat seems a bit odd to me. Even if you aren't sweating, you still have the mix of dead skin cells and oils going. But if you can really go a day without showering and not smell or show any visible evidence, more power to you. I think you just have to be honest with yourself, living in a college town I see quite a few students who look/smell like they need a shower and I can't help but imagine some of them fall into the "I don't need daily showers" camp.

    You should try Googling "How often should I wash my jeans". You'll be surprised.

    EDIT: With the caveat that I wear fairly expensive jeans and you're REALLY not supposed to wash those on a frequent basis.


    So desperately trying to to not be a snob when i say this but i usually wear only designer things Ferragamo, armani and brioni i enjoy style. Short of my suits most things should be washed after 1-2 wearings. This advice coming from ever single tailor and friend i have ever had. Jeans get funky living in florida after 1-2 days and no amount of "airing out" is going to help. Also wearing shirts more than once ewww unless you bathe in old spice your stuffs going to get sweaty and funky fast not to mention 2 weeks. I find it odd that people so grossed out by not taking a shower just hop into the same dirty clothes something that i go eww about. I guess different strokes?

    Seriously guys, wash at least once a day, and never wear your clothes more than once.

    See, that's not always necessary. If I come home from work, change into a t-shirt, and wear it for four hours, I'm probably going to put it on again after work the next day. It's not filthy.

    ...and for that matter, who can afford to own/wash a pair of pants for every day of the week? I certainly don't own 7 pair of jeans, or 5 pair of dress pants for work that actually fit. Clothing is expensive. Runs to the laundromat are expensive. Wearing jeans for a few days never hurt anyone. Underwear and socks, sure - I wash those after one day. But how often do you wash your winter jacket? Most people wear those for hours on end, and they gather quite a bit of sweat and actual dirt.

    Clothing is expensive? Where do you live? I live in Australia, and I can buy a teeshirt for $2. A pair of jeans for $15.

    Even then, I don't have 7 pairs of each different types of pants. I've got 2 pairs of work pants, 2 pairs of jeans, 3 pairs of nice pants, and 4 pairs of shorts, because I like wearing shorts around the house.

    Total cost of all those pants? About $100, bought over the last two years. I wash everything I wear after every time I wear it. I must have worn those jeans hundreds of times each, and they still look like they did the day I bought them.

    How is a trip to the laundromat expensive? A load of washing at my laundromat is $1. The dryer is $1. If I wash three times a week, that's $6 dude.

    6 fucking dollars. Buy one less game every three months, and your clothes will always be fresh, clean, and lady-friendly.

    Yes, my underwear is covering my crotch. Next in line is my jeans.

    Take a clean pair of jeans, wear them for a day, then take a long, deep sniff of the crotch. Smell that? So can other people.

    i think it's different if you live in florida. I only visited orlando once, for a week, but damn, my thighs chafed sore to the point where I couldn't walk. that place is ungodly humid, I grew up in a humid coastal city and it wasn't nearly as bad. Something about FL just seems to take it over the limit.

    That something would be it being hot as a sauna and twice as humid. It's rather awful. Like, anytime during the summer(or fall, or spring), doing anything remotely active, I'm probably taking a couple showers a day. There is no way I'd wear clothing I'd spent any amount of time in outside during the day out again that night, much less again another day. In other climates, or winter, I don't really see much wrong with wearing jeans a couple times between washings.

    My hair is pretty dry, so I tend to wash it every other day or so. Most of my hair people seemed to think this is not inadvisable.

    I'd say you've definitely gotten good deals on clothes. Cheapest I've ever seen a t-shirt in Maine is $4 (5/$20 plain shirts at Olympia Sports). I have a ton of those, so I never have to worry about running out. But jeans? My size (34/34) is hard to find. Most stores tend to carry a ton of pants that have a 30 or maybe a 32 inch inseam, but nothing higher. If I go to JC Penny's or Sears, or even Old Navy, I might find 3 pair of pants that are my size, and even then they don't all fit the same (too tight in the ass - and I'm skinny). And unless it's a great sale, those pants will be $25-$30 a pair.

    And since I'm married, we build up twice as many clothes to wash. In a week, we fill at least one basket that will cost us $2.50 to wash, and the same to dry - if we pack the machine pretty tightly. And that's with conserving clothes. If both of us wore clothes once and then washed them? You're looking at anywhere between $40-$80 a month in laundry.

    It wasn't a problem when we lived in a place with a washer and drier. Now, having to drive 15 minutes one-way to the laundramat means a laundry run eats an entire afternoon. And my commute ensures I will only ever be able to wash clothes on the weekend.

    I'm just saying, it's not always easy to wash things in a timely manner.

    I try and shower every day (assuming I don't come back from my classes, fall asleep, and wonder what the hell happened between the time I left class and when I woke up).

    Then again, I live in Georgia. Even in the winter, I spend a lot of time wrapped in multiple layers of clothing in stuff, poorly-ventilated rooms packed with other people.

    I also make it a point to always shower (and shave) before a social event, even if it means sitting down in my shower and nodding off a couple times.

    Yeah, apparently, clothing is fucking cheap as hell in Australia, because it certainly isn't where I live (and things tend to be fairly inexpensive). I don't own a single pair of jeans, not just because I don't like the way they feel personally, but because they cost 2 to 3 times as much as a pair of khaki pants (I own a lot of khakis). "Cheap" Khakis go for about $19.99 US, and those are Wal-Mart brand. Thankfully, I own a lot of clothing because that's all my parents ever give me whenever I see them. I don't buy $2 T-shirts because, frankly, I don't wear $2 T-shirts (except to sleep in, perhaps). I have four or 5 collar shirts that I rotate through, and other shirts are emergencies.

    Granted, I have my own washing machine now, and a dryer, so the expense of washing is very low. When I was living in dorms, the machines available were goddamn rip-offs, since washing more than two pairs of shirts and two pairs of pants at any given time meant two cycles of washing and two cycles of drying. Then they decided it'd be fun to double the price, one day, out of the blue. I'm thankful I never have to return to that time.

    Has anyone else been unable to take a bath in....about eight years? Maybe more? Only showers?

    I had a bathtub/shower combo in my dorms, and once badly tore up the outside of my leg. Obviously, I didn't want to get the bandages wet, so I thought, "I'll just submerge myself in water, stick my leg out".

    I couldn't do it. Felt weird as hell, and in the end, I just felt wet, not clean, as though I'd gone swimming. The only explanation I could give was that I'd programmed myself not to take baths at some point.

    Pretty much this

    I can't imagine what you're doing to your pants if they reek after 12 hours of use.

    Same goes for hoodies and such, which I usually wear over a t-shirt. They can go two or three uses without having to be cleaned

    In terms of showering. Shower before school, work, or going out. Besides that I just kind of lazy about in pajamas.

    This of course does not apply if you sweat like a pig

    Wearing the cheapest clothing you can find vs. wearing designer or tailored clothing that fits is a completely different conversation.

    Suffice it to say that at $70 - $200 a pair, some of us don't own a pair of jeans for each day of the week.

    As long as you're not sweating in them profusely, jeans don't need to be washed after being worn every time.

    General rule is once a day. If I'm really lazy (or not feeling well, etc) I might miss a day on the weekend. That's assuming I have nowhere to be though. Occasionally it's more than once a day if it's been a really hot day, or if I've been doing something physical.

    I mentioned in [Chat] that I work with 2 guys who, instead of showering in the morning, will shower the night before, then get up in the morning, brush their teeth and come to work. <shudder>

    I doubt I could get away with less than a shower a day, though I could probably just confine it mostly to underarms/neck/face/hair if I were really pressed. Hunching over a sink isn't really my idea of a fun way to wake up though, so I go with the full shower. That said, if my underarms weren't the stink-factories that they are, I could probably get away with every other day.

If I didn't go to the gym, then I didn't really work up a sweat or get dirty (unless it's summer and was really sweltering outside, in which case I may go to once a day).

    In the winter, once per day, in the morning. Though it depends if I'm working out or not.

    In the summer, twice per day, in the morning and evening. In the evening because I usually go running in the heat immediately after work, because for some reason I enjoy running when the temperature is in the high 90s.

    I have to do some amount of shaving at the sink, or I end up with my beard looking like this:
    wanged_beard.jpg

    It goes down a lot further on the left than it does on the right and I look like a goof. So I do the majority of the shaving in the shower, and then do some touch-ups in the mirror. :P

    I wish this worked for me.

    Unless I've been sleeping a lot (for me, +8 hours), a shower basically just involves me standing (or if I'm operating on 5 or less hours of sleep, sitting on that 'shelf') while trying not to nod on. While I do feel cleaner, I definitely do not feel more awake, and probably not really 'refreshed' either.

    Then again, I've nodded off in my shower before. Now, if I have the day off, and I get a lot of sleep, waking up with a shower can actually work.

    The other 90% of the time, though, spending an extra fifteen minutes in my bed, trying to compose myself in the morning, helps infinitely more than waking up fifteen minutes earlier, stumbling into my shower, and having a short shower.

    That, and being a once-a-day shower, the notion of going to bed sweaty and dirty is much less pleasant than going to bed clean.

    Still, I wish they woke me up.

    I've gone periods in my life (let's call them "deployments") where I've had to go without a regular shower and it makes me cranky and itchy.

    I like feeling clean. I don't demand other people have the same commitment to cleanliness, but I'm not going to hang out with you if you're funky.

    I don't like to have to shower twice a day, so I usually shower right after my workout which is right after work, each day.

    I don't feel right if I don't shower in a day, and I definately ain't gonna workout and not shower. The three elements of a day to me include - hygiene (brush teeth, shower, dress for the day) - workout (keeps me level headed, makes food guilt-free, gives me energy) - coffee (coffee).

    Without those three things, my dad feels absolutely incomplete. I would say the latter two are an addiction or dependency, the first one is me feeling self concious.

    I would assume your underwear is covering your crotch. o_O

    You should try Googling "How often should I wash my jeans". You'll be surprised.

    EDIT: With the caveat that I wear fairly expensive jeans and you're REALLY not supposed to wash those on a frequent basis.

    Yes, my underwear is covering my crotch. Next in line is my jeans.

    Take a clean pair of jeans, wear them for a day, then take a long, deep sniff of the crotch. Smell that? So can other people.

    I don't know what's wrong with your balls, but you should have that looked at. Because the crotch of my jeans certainly doesn't smell bad after a day of wear. I also shower twice a day, so YMMV.

    I can't even start the goddamn day without a hot hot hot shower. Scalding water and black coffee pretty much hold me together! Double shower if I run/gym after work.

    I wish this worked for me.

    Unless I've been sleeping a lot (for me, +8 hours), a shower basically just involves me standing (or if I'm operating on 5 or less hours of sleep, sitting on that 'shelf') while trying not to nod on. While I do feel cleaner, I definitely do not feel more awake, and probably not really 'refreshed' either.

    Then again, I've nodded off in my shower before. Now, if I have the day off, and I get a lot of sleep, waking up with a shower can actually work.

    The other 90% of the time, though, spending an extra fifteen minutes in my bed, trying to compose myself in the morning, helps infinitely more than waking up fifteen minutes earlier, stumbling into my shower, and having a short shower.

    That, and being a once-a-day shower, the notion of going to bed sweaty and dirty is much less pleasant than going to bed clean.

    Still, I wish they woke me up.

    This is true for me as well. I find a hot shower will actually put me to sleep if I'm even a little bit tired. Hot water is relaxing. I don't understand how this wakes people up.

    I already have to wake up at 6:30am for work and despite working this early for 3 years I have yet to come close to being a morning person. It's a struggle to get out of bed every morning. Making my day even earlier is something I just can't handle. It's why I usually shower in the evening after I get home from work (where I do my workout at the end of the day).

    Hot showers usually put people to sleep. However, showering in the morning may wake someone up depending on the climate (if it's cold out for instance). All it's really doing is making you move around and getting you active to start the day. If you're in it for waking up, colder/warm showers work a lot better.
