I hate baths.

 Hey readers,

I will let you into a confession.... I don't like baths. I have tried several times but I just don't gel with them. I have discussed below my reason why I hate taking baths.

I hate baths

1.  Baths are filthy. 

Let's get down to the nitty-gritty in that baths are filthy. Think about it your filth from your body, sweat, and dead skin is swirling around in the water that you are bathing in. How is that appealing? It just makes me feel a bit sick if I am being honest. I never feel clean after a bath, unlike showers which I do feel so good after. 

2. Baths are boring. 

Let's just be honest baths are boring AF. I am not the type of person who enjoys sitting in water and waiting for ultimate relaxation. I am a person who enjoys doing something physical whether it is reading a book or writing a blog post for example.

 I can get in the zone with that. Yes, I could read a book in the bath though sadly I have tried doing it and it is just an uncomfortable position to lie in the bath. So that is a definitely no for me. 

 I also spend time thinking about when is it time to get out of the bath.  We have a clock on the wall and I just sit there listening to it tick every second. 

3. Lifting your body out of the water.

There is nothing more annoying than trying to get out of the bath. It is just so dame uncomfortable. You have to be careful as I have learned you can potentially slip which is painful, to say the least.

4.  It takes ages to fill up a bathtub.

Filling up a bath is irritating as it takes so long to get the bath filled up. You have to keep an eye on it and that is not good for me as I get distracted by other things that are happening. Therefore I have to sit there and watch the tub fill up for ages and it is dame boring. 

5. The water doesn't stay warm for long.

And another thing about baths is that when you eventually do fill up the bath full of lovely hot water sadly it doesn't last long. It actually is either lukewarm or cold in such a short space which I think is unpleasant to just in the bath with temperatures like that. 

8. Shampoo your hair is a pain.

I hate shampooing my hair in the bath, it is an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience. I always get shampoo in my ears which is gross. 

Let's not forget the painful experience of getting shampoo in your eyes and you cant use dirty water to wash your eyes out. Then you have to move awkwardly to the taps to get fresh water to clean your eyes out. It is just an all-around pain to do. 

So, there you have my reasons and why I opt for a shower. What are your thoughts on baths? Do you like them or hate them? Love to hear your thoughts in the comment section down below. 

Cheers for reading X

  1. Me too. Definitely a shower person! So much more refreshing. #PoCoLo

  2. ROTFL! I was going to click on another link in the #PoCoLo linky, but when I saw your post title I LOLed and said, "Nope. That's one from this link up"!

    YEEEESSSSSS on #2 when preparing to read, I was like, "I hate sitting in the bath doing nothing - it's boring and I start getting antsy."

    Every once in a while I'd get a mood that would make me think a bath would be perfect and then remember why I don't like them either.

    I tried to have a water birth with my second child. As soon as I sat down in the warm water it kicked my contractions into hyper over drive and I was like, "Nah. I'm good" ... I haven't had a mood for a bath since (almost 14 years later) ;)

    Have a lovely weekend!

  3. Ahh! I love a bath but it's a good job because we don't have a shower. I shouldn't but I take my phone in the bath to keep me amused. I am really careful with it. x

  4. I am SO with you in this. Baths are definitely gross.

  5. I love a bath! Bubbles, face mask, the whole shebang! I don't have them all the time though as like you say, they are a bit boring.

  9. I am a sometimes baths for relaxing with a glass of wine person. For cleaning, shower. After a bath, I drain water and shower anyway. Happens rarely, though. It feels good on my muscles. Thanks for linking up. #KCACOLS
