    Bath always. It's easier to use shampoo bottles as submarines and such.

    I love a bath now & then however I feel cleaner after a shower & it doesn't take as long. Where we are at the moment I swim 3 times a day then have a shower ( no bath here)

    Showers disperse clean water everywhere. So I love them more, hands down. When it comes to baths I feel like I'm swimming around in my own filth and unless I'm all the way under, it's only getting certain parts of my body wet at once.

    I definitely agree with Arksys; showers for getting clean and baths to relax. For someone who spends most of their time around horses, hopping in the shower after a long day at the barn can be just what I need.

    I prefer a bath to a shower because I can relax, and even read while I'm bathing. When I shower, I feel like I'm in a hurry.  It's nice to take it slow and enjoy my bubble bath!

    Showers all the way. I don't have time for a bath. Plus in a bath you're just chilling in your previous filth...seems a little pointless.

    Definitely a shower to get clean -- being married to someone who spent most of his life in health care have made me even more acutely aware of all the little nasties that like to colonize on the surface of your skin, that are just waiting to find an orifice to crawl into. That said, I do love my long relaxing baths...it's my choice way to relax in the one place that hubby and kids won't bother me. If I'm in it to relax, I'll usually take a quick shower and then fill up the bathtub.

    I prefer the shower - it requires no preparation time and offers the convenience of immediate temperature control & gentle messaging action. It's also easier to wash of soap suds. Plus I can imagine I'm standing under a waterfall! smile

    It depends on whether I am in a rush or have a lot of time. If I am in a rush, I would go for a shower. But if I have the time, I would prefer the bath. Hot bath helps to loosen up my muscles and makes me feel relaxed. :-)

    A bath is preferred when I want to relax and unwind. A shower is preferred more when I am in a rush, or just have plans for other things that rely on time consumption. I do believe that they both will provide effective hygiene. But it just depends on other things that may be going on, when it comes to deciding which one to choose at any given time.

    I love having a relaxing bath, but i always shower myself off after as i have just been led in dirty water, i also only ever wash my hair in the shower or myhair just feels horrid.

    To be honest with you, I would prefer a bath. Here in Brazil, bath tubs are few and far between as most houses, mine included, don't have hot water.
    I would love a relaxing bath with lots of bubbles.
