Recently, a woman sparked a Reddit debate after sharing her hygiene issue with her long-distance boyfriend, John. He refuses to shower daily as it’s “bad for the environment,” but she argues that it’s unhygienic.
They discovered their differing showering routines during his recent visit to her house.
Jane showers daily due to her oily skin and scalp, but John showers every three days, which she finds gross.
He believes daily showers are a waste of time, money, and bad for the environment.
Jane sticks to her daily showering routine, especially since she cycles to work and gets sweaty.
Things Got Heated
John calls Jane a nasty name for not understanding his side, and sarcastically suggests she does a “bird bath” instead of a full shower every other day.
Jane feels terrible about the argument but firmly believes she is right, and now has asked the Reddit community if she’s wrong for her beliefs.
Some users support Jane’s choice, “Body odor develops in private places daily.”
What’s the Big Deal?
Others see it as a red flag.
“If you don’t live in a hot place, don’t have a physically demanding job, or don’t work out a lot (basically if you aren’t sweating daily), it’s absolutely fine to not shower every day,” One user argues.
