  • 4-5 days. I normally wash every other day (because of my hair) but there has been times from illness, depression or sheer busyness that I've gone that long

  • I was on a ship once that had problems with its desalinization equipment and so they needed most of the water to feed the boilers. No showers were allowed for about a week before we ended up in a rainstorm and a bunch of us took soap out on deck and showered in that.

    Hunters often go many days in temps close to freezing so no showers.

  • I was in the back country in Yellowstone for over a week, and didn't shower as the temperature was often right or bellow freezing. Believe me that shower when I got home felt AMAZING, but I would do it again in a heart beat.

  • I bathe on Wednesdays and Sundays. I haven't the currency or fiscal worth to waste water on doing it every day.

    Don't think I could go any longer.

  • I'm OCD and self conscious. I always assume that people will hate me if my appearance isn't flawless.
    I shower every morning and if I ever get sweaty during the day I shower again.

  • Once I went 4-5 days when I was in the field for work. That first shower after getting back to the barracks felt amazing.

  • Normally I shower 1 time a day (not including the showers for going to gym), except in summer, when I shower mostly at least 2 times a day.
    So, never have been not showering for more than 2 days.

  • The closest I can get to that question is how many days have I gone without washing my hair. And the answer is 3 days. I get like, physically ill, for some reason. Psychosomatic or someshit, I don't know.

  • Once over the summer i was so lazy i didn't shower for 3 days I didn't wash anything and I was smelly. Now I shower every other day if I'm at home all day, and when I don't shower I at least clean my essentials (vagina/face/armpits) so I don't smell. I shower more often the more I go out, seems reasonable.

  • About 2 weeks. Was out sailing and about 2 weeks away from port and only had enough fresh water for about 1 week. So obviously water was restricted and showers were cut...
