Shower or bath person?

Are you a shower or a bath person??

I am a bath person...a bubble bath person!!! I love my bath with scented bubbles and oils, candle light, juice or water to drink(Oh, and sometimes I smuggle a couple of chocolates into the tub, too!) and the peace and quiet!! I do not have a big jacuzzi tub, THAT would be heaven!!!

I love citrusy scented bubblebaths and soaps! I would like to get one of those wire racks that goes across the tub to keep all my soaps and stuff in. Right now I keep everything in a basket next to the tub.
Time to get off this computer and go have a nice long soak!!
peace,train

I tend to take long hot showers now....I use aromatherapy cleanser that has lavender, patchouilli. I love that smell.

In my old 100 yr old home I had a large, long tub...I would soak there for hours...with a glass of wine or a cup of tea....I miss that tub! lol

My home now has a short narrow tub, without a sloping back! It hurts to lean back in it and your legs are cramped under the faucets! Not a pleasant experience!

So now I shower instead and company is always nice! ;-)

Hot showers

I love long hot showers, but one day I plan to have a jacuzzi hot tub and then let the fun begin!;-)

Shawn-I love the picture of the penguins under your name. I am a huge fan of all things penguins!

I'm a shower person, myself. I enjoy all of those scented gels and sprays.

When I want to soak, we have a hot tub on the back porch, I can sit there for hours with a glass of wine and a good book. The best part is, all of you is under water! No cold knees and cramped backs!

We will be moving soon, and one of the first things we buy will be another hot tub.

I can't wait to get home for a soak!

I'm a shower person myself...I could really never justify sitting in tub of water that becomes a tub of dirty water....*Laughing* However.....seriously..... I take my long shower and then.....i fill the tub with fresh water....turn on the jaccuzzi thingy...and there ya go...... It's the best investment...makes these old bones feel good.... *s*

I like the scented soaps and gels etc..but for the most part I love the fresh scent of Zest white water soap...it's sooo fresh!...Caress is a nice bar too.....so is there liquid wash.

I'm definitely a tub person!! Our new house has a jacuzzi type bathtub ( not the really big ones), and sometimes I use it that way, great for headaches or sore muscles, but usually I just use it as a tub--door locked so no one can come in, sometimes with a candle or book. We've had drought conditions here, so I try not to do it too often. During the summer when conditions were really bad, the tub only had about two inches of water in it, not very relaxing!! Scented soaps, etc tend to make me too itchy, but I like the scented candles!

I like to bathe just before bed, in the summer it takes off that film of sticky sweat, and in the winter, it makes you nice and toasty!!

Hmmm....Now I want a jacuzzi, lol I always thought they were neat but, my house has no room....now if ever Iget to put on an addition...I am putting in another bathroom! We used to have a sauna but took that out last year, mold growing behind the walls.YUCKY!!!! I would settle for a deep clawfoot tub! lol

Whenever I travel, I always get the hot tub room especially if I am staying put for a few days....we spent a week one time at a place that had a jacuzzi, complete with bathrobes, scented soaps, loofahs, and lotion. It was nice. It was the only room they had for us, so they gave it to us as the same price as a standard room...what a deal!

Janet....I have a jacuzzi tub...in the bathroom...it's the main bathtub/shower....... we only have the one bath room in this house...it is its only drawback...... jacuzzi tubs come in a variety of sizes.....I believe.

I have always loved taking showers in the summer, and baths in the winter, but the house we live in only has a bathtub. It is a big old bathtub with claw feet. It is very comfortable to just lie back in. You could almost go to sleep in it.
