    When do you wash?

    this may seem like an odd question, but it is something I have thought a lot recently living in a foreign country.

    Normally back home in the UK, I would have a shower in the morning before school and then latterly, work. If I played sport, went to the gym, or did other sorts of exercise during the day, i would then have another shower; either straight after the sport, of as soon as I got home.

    Since I've been in Australia and lived in multiple shared accommodation, it seems they Aussies all seem to forgo the morning shower, and have a shower last thing before they go to bed. Normally this is after they have done their work and then gym and sports for the day.

    Maybe its just me but I wake up in the morning minging, especially after the hot, sweaty nights we have here in summer.

    So; Poll.

    I shower either straight after work or after I've done a couple of hours of manual work after the office job.

    I prefer to just get up, do my teeth and get in the car in the morning.

    They had a chat about this a while ago on Radio 2. Surprising amount was the night before rather than before work in the morning. Which is good as I wash night before and now I don't feel so skanky about it.

    Normally the night before and then just a wash and brush up before work, and then after working out at the Gym, mainly because I don't want to upset people with my sweaty smellyness on the bus

    I bath in the morning before work, If im going out on a friday and saturday night then I bath before that too.

    I use the showers at the gym after a work out.

    I bath in the morning as I tend to get sweaty at night espicially during the summer months.

    Generally bath once a day. If I'm driving to work then in the morning before I go. If I'm cycling then it's in the evening as soon as I get home. If I'm feeling lazy on non-work days I might not bath at all...

    I tend to shower in the evenings as I like to let my (very long) hair dry itself. A decent wash in the morning is just as good as a shower in my opinion if you are just wanting clean.

    Play sports most nights so I tend to have them after that. Although I do love shower morning freshness. But no point having a shower before bed then a shower in the morning!

    Mornings only for me: go to the gym after work a few days a week, but content to smell like dogfox until the morning
