I'm a terrible morning person, I NEED that shower first thing to get me going. One time, I had apparently lay down and fell back asleep (it's a big garden tub) and the water started to rise to head level. Fortunately, I was woken by the warning sound of cats lapping the water right next to my face.

:P Absolutely!!! I'm not a morning person at all, but my husband is...and he has learned to get me coffee, not talk about anything important and don't ask me any questions until I've been awake for at least 45 minutes.

But, if I've been doing nasty, filthy work I take a shower at night. If I've been doing the paperwork for our business all day, or other light work, I don't bother.

Pretty much what Michelle said.

I shower mornings and only evenings if I actually do something that gets me dirty or overheated. Sitting around doing paperwork or writing doesn't make me dirty... so I can go to bed just fine.

I once met a person who showered every morning, night, again after going to the gym and after every time they went to the bathroom... full shower.

Now that is a bit nutty.

Embrace the impossible.

I like my morning shower I aim my face right wear it gets the full force of the water to wake me up, but I am usually pressed for time having slept till the last possible moment which means a quite scrub and then dash for the wardrobe, so I try to shower more leisurely at night when I can, definitely when I've been working out or had a physically active day.
but
Don't see the issue either way but I worked with someone who very conspiritually pointed out(whispered to me as though it was a juicy tidbit :rolleyes: ) that her team mate confessed to showering at night and "doesn't that mean she comes to work with all the night sweats on her?".  I never thought about it before but I'm guessing morning showers would on average be more popular with those that habitually sweat at night and not that important to those that don't.

In the winter time, I hate the thoughts of jumping into a shower first thing, because our bathroom is always freezing..  I have to set our heating to go on an hour before we wake up...Yet in the summer going through a heat wave, I would welcome a cold bathroom to shower in...

The wife thinks that it's weird that I get my daily shower of an evening. Before going to bed. She says that I'm one of the relatively few people that she knows that gets one then. She says that nearly everyone she knows gets one in the morning after waking up. I think that's weird. I mean who wants to go to bed dirty ?  Right ?

Getting a shower when I do can't be that rare is it ?  Maybe people do both.

So what's the general consensus of you fine folks  here.   Morning or Evening ???

Firstly, I don´t see how that is an "either or" question. Do some people really think it would kill them taking more than one shower a day?

Secondly, here in Japan, the hot bath at the end of each day is absolutely part of the daily routine. The idea of getting into bed without first taking a nice hot, relaxing bath (or, if abroad, at least a nice hot shower) is kind of disgusting.

Live here long enough, and you will think so too.

Just for the heck of it, let's throw some controversy in - Australia is prone to long periods of drought, where water restrictions are put in place.  As a concerned citizen about the use of water, is it ethical to shower only every second or third day especially if you don't work in a labour-heavy industry and don't use the gym (let's say I'm a 9-5 Office Worker in an air-conditioned cubicle, who drives home orders Home Delivery Chinese food, and then sits and watches tv in an air-conditioned house- the sweat would be minimal)?

I shower in the afternoons, as I said, but sometimes I try and get a rise out of my friends when water restrictions are in place to tell them that I am "doing my part" for the Australian environment.  So far not many people have found my comment palatable (though every now and then I've met someone who showers every second day, and on rarer occasions even every 3 days).  But when sweating is minimal is it really 100% necessary to have a shower, especially with water restrictions in place, and the existence of the remarkable invention known as "shower-in-a-can" (more commonly called deodorant).

Some of you guys have no idea what roughing it is.....

I remember about three years ago, me and my husband didn't have a shower or bathtub installed yet, so to take a bath, we had to take a water hose, put it in a tree, and stand underneath it. Exhilarating!
Don't worry, I live out in the country, so you can run around naked and no one can see you.....

OK, I totally get that. If water is not available readily, then of course who have to prioritize. The main thing is to drink the stuff to stay alive. For desert Arabs, I can totally see how personal hygene takes a second place to basic survival.

But if there is water available without restrictions, then I really do not see a reason why you should not take a shower if you actually can. Jeeze!

Nope.
I work at home and some days don't leave the house. Sometimes I skip the morning shower when there has been no dirty work, no sweating, no nothing that would make me dirty in any way. Rarely, but sometimes.

Maybe other people's bodies are different than mine... but I don't turn gross and gooey or anything automatically after 24 hours.

Embrace the impossible.

I shower every morning when I am working that day.  Gotta smell pretty for the customers!  But, on my days off I take a shower when ever I get around to it.

Since I sweat a lot while I sleep (I mean, puddle of sweat in the middle of my chest sweaty), I am a morning shower person. I take at least a 20 minute (very hot) shower in the morning as well. Whenever I get in or near water of any kind I have a hard time getting out of it.
I don't know why, I just like being in and around water. Call me strange, I just feel some sort of connection with it.

I barely sweat when I am awake and that includes working outside in the yard on a hot day so it's not like I go to bed all grimey.
