Humans of Reddit, do you wash your entire body every time you shower?
By - mlsc42
You're there, might as well wash everything.
Face, vag, ass, armpits
I do the same thing but it’s like this
Chest , stomach , ass , penis , armpits , face , hair
In that order?
Oh yeah foot to
Obviously not. Ass always comes first. Where do you think the soap comes from?
I'm a dude and always wash my vagina first. Is that weird?
Not in 2021
Good to know. I've always done it that way and no one's ever complained!
Yes, I live in Florida. Every inch of you sweats.
I hated visiting my sister when she lived there. The feeling that when it's crazy hot and humid, you never fully dry off after a shower is the worst.
I currently live where you never fully dry off..it sucks but you kinda get used to it.
Yeah... what's the alternative? Choosing individual parts to skip? Are they hard to reach? Is it painful for some reason to clean it? Why wouldn't you clean your entire body?
I don't wash my hair every time I shower.
The reason for that is it takes time to wash my hair and I don't need to wash my hair every day (in fact, it's bad for my hair if I do).
I have eczema, most doctors suggest skipping those areas. (Back of knees, elbow pits? Idk what to call them)
Yeah thought that's the point of showering
Yes. Crust of dead skin cells ain't gonna exfoliate themselves!
Running late but gotta wake up? Wash the genitals and stand under water for a minute or two.
Feel gross but also extremely tired? Hair, face and genitals.
Going out on a date or to an event? Thoroughly wash everything.
Just a normal day? Take some time on the dirtier parts. Then frisk yourself with some soap like a security guard who doesn't give a shit.
Hungover? Wash nothing and stand there contemplating life until the steam makes you want to pass out.
Every part gets wet anyways, but I just scrub my hair, under the arms, chest & crotch
Almost never wash my feet choosing to trust the soapy water I stand in.
Strong believer in Trickle-Down Soaponomics myself
what an underrated reply
I pretty much ignore anything below the knees.
This is the way.
LPT: Lift and wash each foot, while standing on the other one.
Your older self will thank you for the balancing skills you preserved.
Never. Wasted balance.
If I wish to balance, I will make room for the joy of a child.
I will fondly recall skateboarding, I was so good adults said get off the rails you little hooligan, and choose to make a fool of myself on a childs Christmas hoverboard or something.
You broke the tree hehehe. Yes I did, the past tricked me.
Affirmative, while scrubbing everything else.
I have a shower tub combo i put the bathtub plug in and a drop or two of shampoo before i start the shower that way i have soapy water slowly encapsulate my feet generally feels cleaner then a normal shower
I have a basic shower and I block the drain with a washcloth or large gallon shampoo bottle. It reliably builds to my ankles.
I shave and brush my teeth in the shower too so my feet get several products on them to be minty clean.
I’ve heard of so many people doing this but it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t a good idea and will not clean your feet.
Rubbing alcohol/hand sanitizer works by cleaning on contact. Soap on the other hand works more like sand paper in that it needs motion to clean.
This is how you get athlete's foot
I disagree. Not had that in a long time. You get athletes foot from shoes. Every chance I get I go for open sandal style. And my closed off shoes I am very hygienic with them. I hit them almost every time I have to wear them with an antiseptic spray I use on my pets when they get hurt.
No. I got athlete's foot from not washing my feet. Just got rid of it. Proof's in the pudding!
Yes otherwise I sit in bed thinking about my parts I didn’t decide to go and wash thoroughly the rest of the day or night 🙃
No. Hair, face, vulva, ass, boobs, pits.
I have dry skin, so stripping it of its natural oils is exactly what I don't want to do. I wash the rest occasionally, or if I get actually dirty.
Lemme hand you some moisturizer
So use a product to remove my natural oils, then replace those natural oils with artificial ones? That seems like a lot of extra steps and money for a process my body does on its own.
Fine, I'll take my moisturizer back.
Yeah. Isn't that what you're supposed to do?
Nah, I'd rather just sit outside the shower and wait until it's done.
I think you just reminded me that I should scrub behind my ears and my back better
Not the inside
Alcohol is for washing away the inside dirt.
Often don’t wash my hair, bruv.
Yea I only wash mine max 3x a week
Was this question asked by an alien-
No, It’s not good for your skin. I wash my face and all the creasy areas of me lol and my feet usually.
I have never ever deliberately washed my legs
Legs are the sewer of the body - everything washes down but it doesn't wash off. Once I'm done with everything else I step out of the spray, wash my legs, rinse JUST them, then turn off the water.
Nah man. I just leave them and then put on my jeans that I also never wash
100% always clean the dirtiest spots — hands, feet, butt, groin, underarms.
As for the rest, it’s a quick wash that might might miss several spots
The hot spots, if you will
Nope. Just the hair and extra stinky parts
Hair every other shower.
Exfoliate face every 3-4 showers.
Body wash every single time every single place.
Face cream before bed.
It's called anti-aging, not de-aging.
Yes, every bit, no use in being unsure the next day.
Just my junk, armpits, and face. In that order.
Might consider reversing that order.
I like this order
In rare cases I may take a second shower of day so I would not wash my hair, like washing off bug spray.
No. Left half of my body on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Right half on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
You just smell funky on Sundays?
That's my day of rest.
Shampoo hair (sometimes), face, pits, and between the legs. Avoiding the soap keeps my skin less dry.
I'll do body wash all over if I'm actually dirty, from yard work or something.
Yes. Even use a scrubby with a long handle on my back.
Yea, you are already there, it only makes sense to wash your whole body.
No. There's no need. Why does every bit of skin need to be washed every shower?
I don´t wash my feet, because I don´t like balancing on one foot in a slippery shower.
Edit: I don´t wash my face either.
I don’t think anyone washes their back
I have a special poof to wash my back.
I can reach all the parts of my back. Soap and then lotion. You should stretch maybe?
I was surprised not everyone can reach back there when I ask this question to a group of friends
Not a Human, but yes, I wash my entire body when I shower. I like to be clean.
Yes. I'm not a trash bag.
Oh cool I almost mistook you for a Febreeze fresh hefty bag.
It common. I have those at home and they are also white.
Ooh you got them fancy trash bags? I got the bulk Sam's Club trash bags. They're cheap and fall apart easily, like me.
Yeah. I live with a cat. 1 bag of trash a week for me + however much he poops and pees gets bagged separately in smaller "scented" bags. Those bags don't smell like lemon, but it was like 75 cents for 100 bags or something like that.
I live with three cats, I know that life. Speaking of my black bitch of a cat just sat in my lap. I adore her.
When my cat wants pet, he lays down and stretches like whichever superhero that has only the ability to stretch. Fantastic 4? Is that even right?
Mr. Fantastic AKA Reed Richards, you're absolutely correct. What kinda cat you have?
An orange one.
Nice, I have an orange one too. I refer to him as the resident butthead. His name is Oscar. What's your buddy's name?
Yes. Bar soap (I don't like the liquid scents) and loofah gloves. Get all in the nooks and crannies. Head to toe scrub, rinse, and gtfo.
Yes I do. Usually I'm in the shower covered in sweat after a workout or removing the scent of smoke on myself before work, so I clean everything. I enjoy the scent of my soap and shampoo and just like to be clean in general.
95% of the time I do, unless i'm running late or something
I really wanted to answer, but since I'm an alien, I'm afraid I can not.
yes especially my dick and ass typically my bf washes it when we shower together
Indeed I do.
Yes, as that's the point of showering.
Usually. I don’t always do a full clean for my hair (my scalp has some severe dryness issues and shampoo can irritate that), but I get everywhere else.
No. Sometimes I don’t wash my hair, I just give it a rinse with water
Not a human, can’t confirm
yeah but im skinny hahahahaha
>Armpits, asshole, crotch and teeth. And you can save a whole lot of time by using the same brush on all four.
If suds hit it, it’s clean
… do some people not do that?
Everything. Including using a back brush to get the middle of my back. Warm (not hot) water, Ivory bath bar for soap.
Yes. Also spray the under carriage
Every square inch except the parts of my back I cannot reach.
It depends how long I have. Sometimes I'll be cutting it so close that I'll be power walking through the door at work against the second hand. Mornings like these, every saved second counts.
who are you, and how did you find me
How is this even a question ?
Sometimes in the summer I'll take 2 showers in a day if it's really hot or if I decided to do something active after I got home from work and had already showered. In that case, on the second shower I usually don't shampoo my hair cause overwashing can be bad for your hair. Or so I've heard.
If I'm not being beaten up then yes.
I legitimately have no idea what OP thinks "washing" is right now. Or what they think a "shower" is.
No. I find it very difficult to wash between my liver and spine, for instance.
Just in there to poop mostly.
i do the quick hair face ass groin pits every day but do a deep scrub of everything twice a week with all the exfoliator/smell goods/skin care stuff etc. id like to do the deep scrub every day but mental illness got its grip on me
I'll get wet - Wash every inch of my body - 40 minutes stare at a good looking part of the wall while the shower is running - Rinse
Pits, arms, and taint. Sometimes my face if it’s gotten particularly dirty.
I only wash my taint
Yes, but I also don't necessarily shower every single day. When I do shower, I want to be clean.
Yeah, why would you not?
Armpits and penis every day. Entire body and hair every other day.
Soap soap Bubble bubble.
Washing circuits causes trouble
Everything including my toes.
