    I am discussing renting a place together with my friend, then we mentioned about taking showers. I told him that it usually takes me 10 to 15 mins to have a shower. My friend was shocked, and said it only take him 5 to 8 mins to have one.

    Well, I used to have long showers when I live by myself in China, then I moved to Australia, now since I am sharing, I have tried my best to reduce the time for me to take a shower. Well, the first shower during the day, I have to make sure I covered all parts. icon_lol.gif, it's kinda long, say more than 10 mins.

    I shampoo my hair once or twice, then apply the conditioner. I will start wash my body while leaving conditioner on my hair. Then I will wash my face and wash off the whole body.... well... it's a long process, have to make sure every part is clean... so yes, 10mins minimum.

    What about you guys?

    3-5 minutes in the shower. I find it odd that it would take 10 minutes to get to all of your parts.

    Usually 10 minutes. If I have to shave maybe like 15 minutes.

    Depends, there has been times that I have taken showers that were a half hour long. Just because it feels good and I get lost in deep thought or something.
    The hot water feels so relaxing sometimes I don't wanna get out.

    Were you thinking about how much you like the feel of prune-like skin?

    If I'm alone and need to be somewhere, about 5 minutes.

    If I'm not alone, considerably longer.

    I run very little water in the shower, but I wash everywhere, plus shampoo and condition my hair; I brush my teeth, floss, exfoliate, shave, and even wipe down the shower and the faucets afterward. The whole routine takes about 15 minutes.

    I would say typically between 5 - 10 minutes. If my back is sore, I was give myself another 5.

    I'd say 10-15 too. I can make it go faster if I'm in a hurry, but hot showers are so therapeutic...why not stay in a few more minutes? icon_smile.gif

    Less than 10 mins for me. I only shampoo and condition my hair once a week as overwashing is bad for the hair. I do still rinse my hair with water and shower twice a day with bodywash (sometimes 3 times a day).
