Do you stink?

As an average, I would say I shower about every 1.75 days. On days I don't get sweaty, I may skip a shower, but there have been days that I might shower two or more times a day. Those would be the summer days that I work up a sweat working outside more than one time a day. Like getting soaking wet with sweat in the morning, showering and showering again after an active evening outside.

I sleep better if I shower off the sweat.

Every night before bed, in the summer. In the winter depends on if the house has cooled down by the time I go to bed. I don't like to get a chill. I never stink, I smell like hay, manure, horses, and mules. Sometimes I smell like lumber, or saw dust, but I never stink.

Minimum twice per day. Three times today because I broke out sweating on an awning and scaffolding painting too high for my comfort level ... The second shower was at the office...

Those are some real expensive aromas to obtain on oneself. Hate to waste and wash off the side affects of spending that cash.

Usually every day, but I'll skip a day or so if I've not exerted myself or if I'm just plain worn out.

As she and I have two houses, see each other at least every other day and at home my dogs share my bed unless she is sleeping here and I have flipped the mattress and put real sheets on it after a Febreze spray and stored the usual pet cover and sleeping bags, I "navy shower" in the morning , after a day working and sweating and before our time together or going to see a doctor.

If really sweaty work days I may shower at lunch also.

The only time I change my shower schedule is if spending a few days at home alone doing non sweat chores with my mattress in dog share mode and then I sink bathe in the morning and night to keep any dog smell on me to a minimum since one dog likes to sleep close and my most recent rescue pit bull snakes her way into my sleeping bag to be even closer.

I'm glad that she is only about 40 pounds and my sleeping bag a large one and in winter she makes a nice bed warmer with her older bigger sister sleeping against my bag too.
