We have a water metre so to save money I've decided to stop showering and bathing. I saw on telly (This Morning) about a woman who stopped washing her hair and it started self-cleaning in 8 weeks.

You'll stink like mouldy kipper within a month. Please at least wash your vag!

It will be fine.

Don't be crazy now.

If you are female, you'll end up cultivating a sootikin before you know it. Go on, google it. You know you want to...

sheesh, dont come anywhere near me. I have a nose like a blood hound and I can smell a stinky person at 100 yards!

There is nothing worse than an unwashed person. <boak>

Well I heard some women saying in a conversation about The Great Unwashed and I'm feeling a bit low so I thought I would save myself some money and cheer myself up at the same time.

If you live anywhere near York, can I recommend going to Jorvik so you can get an idea of what you will smell like after a while?

I've been toying with the idea of giving up my cups of tea - y'know, to save the pennies and the environment, with all that kettle boiling and associated polava - and drink gin instead.

I'm quite looking forward to my shreddies and gin tomorrow morning, it'll make the walk to nursery more eventful than's the norm.

I'm not sure how not cleaning would cheer you up? Actually I know for me it would have the opposite effect.

My auntie tried this not washing her hair cause it will cleanse itself crap, when I picked her up to give her a lift I had to open the windows as her hair stank so bad!

Well that'll be fun when u come on.

You will need to wash your clothes much more often as they will absorb your stink.

That's not going to help with the water meter.

Hey openerofjars I do live in York! Tang Hall to be precise.

NirvanaSmellsLikeTeenMother Sun 24-Feb-13 21:58:30

I live in York too, dont come near me please if you decide not to wash.

gardengate Sun 24-Feb-13 22:16:53

I don't really live in Tang Hall. That was a joke. Although Tang Hall is quite nice.

cozietoesie Sun 24-Feb-13 22:20:39

Oh my. I googled sootikin. I knew I shouldn't.

gardengate Sun 24-Feb-13 22:23:17

What is it? It sounds like a name for a cat.

CommanderShepard Sun 24-Feb-13 22:26:52

No poo isn't really about not washing though; it's more about not using shampoo/products containing sodium laureth sulphate.

8 weeks is a long time to be a bit whiffy in hopes your hair will self clean!

Flojobunny Sun 24-Feb-13 22:29:13

Mouse shaped?

hiddenhome Sun 24-Feb-13 22:35:18

I haven't washed for two years. I've been sacked from four jobs and have no friends, so I wouldn't recommend it tbh confused

SirBoobAlot Sun 24-Feb-13 22:35:23

I just googled sootikin. Never bloody learn...

Flojobunny Sun 24-Feb-13 22:48:05

It's mouse shaped soot.

MoonlightandRoses Sun 24-Feb-13 22:48:37

Just for you OP.

(First time I've found a "never google" in Wikipedia too!) grin
