AIBU to not be bothered about morning showers? (Light hearted!)

Apparently, (light hearted banter with friends) it is weird that I don't shower every morning. I am not that bothered, and I don't have time.

HOWEVER, I do shower every night, and every time I exercise and when I feel I need it. I also change my bedding every week, and my clothes every day (at least).

I can't stand the idea of being dirty in my clean bed, even worst after commuting or being outside. No, I really don't think I smell!

Am I being THAT gross?

Ooh I didn't know this was a gross thing?! I don't either, I'd have to get up at about 5am to fit it in and as you say, I always have clean bedding and bedwear, clean clothes etc. have never smelled! Much prefer one at night. The only exception would be if I felt I really needed one.

There's no way I could go to work in the morning without a shower. I'd feel grungy all day.

I don't think it's dirty, though. At all!

I tend to get one each morning simply because it helps me wake up!

But I don't always on a weekend.

DH doesn't get a shower every morning. He does a manual job between his shifts so doesn't see the point.

I get a bath on a night, never a shower!

I usually shower in the morning, however if I've had one the night before (due to exercise, General ickiness etc) I don't unless I feel I've sweated in the night, as I sometimes do. I'm fine with it.

I am the same as you and don't find it disgusting at all!

I exercise every evening so need to shower then anyway, and two showers a day is just ridiculous.

I've just stopped having morning ones to ease bathroom congestion but I don't feel properly clean if I'm honest and think I'm going to reinstate a really quick one in the mornings but keep my main hairwashing, armpit shaving etc one in the evenings.

I don't even shower every day

I think it's a bit rank but then I shower before I go to the gym every morning so I'm off at the other end of the spectrum of cleanliness as I also shower before bed.

Charley50 Fri 25-Sep-15 14:54:57

I don't shower every day either!!!

Why do you shower before the gym?

randomsabreuse Fri 25-Sep-15 14:57:46

Morning shower is vital for waking up...

Quiero Fri 25-Sep-15 14:59:22

I never shower in the morning midweek because I can't be arsed. I'd rather have 10 more minutes in bed. I do at weekends when I've got more time.

I start work at 7am and it's an hour away so I always shower the evening/night before a shift so I can stay in bed a wee bit longer. When I'm off I have a shower in the morning and again in the evening if I feel I need to.

PunkrockerGirl Fri 25-Sep-15 14:59:44

Just what I was wondering Ledkr confused

I do morning or evening but rarely both.

Twinkie1 Fri 25-Sep-15 15:00:42

Because I feel grotty and as well as cleaning me it wakes me up and tames the sleep mane!

LittleRedSparkle Fri 25-Sep-15 15:01:07

what they said!!

why would you shower BEFORE the gym, unless you are really stinky

SladeGreen Fri 25-Sep-15 15:02:53

I prefer an evening shower too. I have a long commute each day and I prefer to go to bed feeling clean and not covered in germs from the smelly train

BrandNewAndImproved Fri 25-Sep-15 15:04:07

I always have a bath before bed, I don't like getting into bed dirty and change bedding weekly ect ect. I'm not a sweaty person so unless I've been shagging all night I don't bother with a shower in the morning.

hellsbellsmelons Fri 25-Sep-15 15:05:01

It depends for me.
I have a bath some evenings and if I do then I don't shower in the morning.
If I don't have a bath in the evening then I shower in the morning.
Blimey, we'd have no natural oils left if we showered or bathed more than once a day.

I need it in the morning to feel awake, so it's not a cleanliness thing more a being able to function. As long as you don't smell I don't see it matters when you shower.
I had a friend express horror that I don't wash my hair everyday. I only wash it once a week or if it smells (from a bonfire or a pub) because otherwise it goes the consistency of straw and looks terrible.

I shower every other day (mornings) and on non shower days I have a sink wash - bits and pits with a flannel flannels are loathed here i know and yes flannel goes straight in dirty washing.

Clothes, underwear and pj's clean everyday, bed linen changed weekly.

hahaha thank you, glad it's not just me.

We can't even be blamed for morning smells in trains/ tubes or others grin.

(and I am a SAHM anyway)
