3 showers a week, AIBU to think this is a bit gross?

squeakytoy Sat 23-Jul-11 17:23:16

Not if they are having a daily wash. There isnt any need to have a daily shower.

DoMeDon Sat 23-Jul-11 17:23:38

YABU. I think the same but it depends on other factors. If they don't move about much and strip wash in between they could still be clean.

AngryChair Sat 23-Jul-11 17:23:40

They're not having a daily wash.

Shinyshoes1 Sat 23-Jul-11 17:23:52

no not at all unless he is smelling or has a very active job/social life

shock at me assuming it's a man shock

I bathe 3 times a week and I don't smell..............I hope

I don't think it's enough for most people. Unless they are having a very thorough wash done inbetween.

AngryChair Sat 23-Jul-11 17:24:34

They work full time in a supermarket, lots of manual work and they don't get a wash inbetween the showers

Eglu Sat 23-Jul-11 17:24:37

X post, no not enough then imo.

Shinyshoes1 Sat 23-Jul-11 17:24:43

I don't have a fanny wash everyday , just face and pits

pinkthechaffinch Sat 23-Jul-11 17:25:00

especially not at this time of year.

Deaddei Sat 23-Jul-11 17:30:09

God no. If I didn't shower daily I would feel rank.

DoMeDon Sat 23-Jul-11 17:32:28

Please say that is a joke shiney <envy> that's a puke face btw!

DoMeDon Sat 23-Jul-11 17:33:06

envy obvs - am not envious of your unwashed fanjo blush

AngryChair, if it bothers you, then it's not enough.

OrangeHat Sat 23-Jul-11 17:37:36

If a person doesn't whiff or feel uncomfortable then they are washing enough IMO.

emsyj Sat 23-Jul-11 17:38:35

I think only 3 showers a week is gross. I would smell if I only showered 3 times a week. I reckon most people would. YANBU.

tothemoonandback Sat 23-Jul-11 17:40:43

You are being unreasonable. How often they wash is none of your business.

emsyj Sat 23-Jul-11 17:40:46

Thing is though OrangeHat a lot of people smell and probably have no idea. So the person him or herself is probably not the best judge of whether he or she smells.

namechange100 Sat 23-Jul-11 17:41:40

Depends how much you sweat and to what extent you 'french wash' in between and change your clothes, use anti perspirants and how hot is is and if you are pig like - do mucky stuff.

For me 4 baths a week and a goof wash in between, more if I am swimming/wokring out.

Pyjama days are err spurious.....

emsyj Sat 23-Jul-11 17:42:16

Even if they stink, tothemoonandback? grin

On a serious note, if I shared an office (for example) with someone who smelled unpleasant I would think their personal hygiene was very much my business.

maypole1 Sat 23-Jul-11 17:42:41

i would be shocked to find out a person is not having a shower every day if not having a daily wash especially a woman because whatever you say when on period you will stink

OrangeHat Sat 23-Jul-11 17:46:08

Yes emsyj, hence "if they don't whiff".

maypole1 I don't "stink" when I have a period thanks hmm

BelleEnd Sat 23-Jul-11 17:46:43

It's ludicrous to say that people would smell if they don't shower daily. Do you all lounge in pigshit all day?

LineRunner Sat 23-Jul-11 17:47:28

Maypole1, thank you so much for your fragrant comments on women's stinking.

LineRunner Sat 23-Jul-11 17:48:35

Anyway, AngryChair, who's the culprit? If it's someone close to you, then it's your business for sure.
