You get mouldy? Stop thinking about little girls you dirty old man!!! I haven't had a shower since Sunday night and it is now Thursday. So I'll have to have a shower tonight before it becomes too obvious.

I went two weeks without showering one time, while on a trip in rural China.

I took 3 showers in a row when I got home, though.

I have been blessed with a full complement of skin disorders. Various topical treatments with seven syllable names help, but eventually it becomes a choice between having bad skin and living in a constant inch thick layer of ooze. There's such a thing as too much medication.

Considering the question is "goes" rather than "has gone," it's a question of regular habit rather than personal record of unwashedness.

"12 hours" wasn't on the list, so I didn't cast a vote. Yes, you heard me, 12 hours. I live in the freakin' desert and you get soggy then crusty after just a few hours, so I shower upon waking and then again shortly before retiring. I wash my hair only in the morning, and just do more of a quick rinse in the evening—I'm sort of splitting one long shower into two quick ones. So it's not like I'm wasting millions of gallons of heavily chlorinated water every day that would be better spent being sucked down to Los Angeles to fill some idiot's pool.

EDIT: I just realized that within the space of mere minutes, I've revealed more of my personal life on these boards than ever before. Now everybody knows that when I'm not asleep, I'm in the shower! :rolleyes:

I meant record not regular habit so I'm sorry if anyone misunderstood

Oh. All right. Then if it's a matter of person record, I take the 5th....

I went the first four years of my life without a shower. I was bathed.

Now, since I've started taking showers regularly? My record would be nineteen days under extenuating circumstances, and thirteen days in a lack thereof (and that was mostly to see how long I could go without showering without smelling like death).

I'm fairly sure that during my youth I must have once managed to go a month without bathing. I was a horribly scruffy child. I still am, but I get nasty sweat rashes if I don't shower regularly so I'm pretty unlikely to miss more than a day except where washing facilities simply aren't available.

I have not had a shower, in quite a long time. Which is a definite shame, as I prefer them, to baths. Record for going without, though? Maybe a week or so, as a child? Maximum of every other day, these days, though.

I don't seem to remember how long I've gone without a shower before. More than a week anyway.

I'm not really a one for being clean all the time. I once took 2 showers in a day, and it felt kinda wierd. ;)

I usually go to shower every few days. Sometimes I, however, don't have that choice, so I'll go to swim instead.

I usually shower once a day. When I was very young, I often went two or three weeks without one. If I was forced to, I'd usually cry.
