Re: Showers


OK is saving on razors going too far -- are we being penny wise and pound foolish? I have to admit I feel great being a skinflint with my razors, but it is hard to argue that it does anything material for my annual budget...

Re: Showers

[Warning: HH Post ]

Nobody has mentioned the fact that once one is retired one may take those two person showers we used to take when we were first married ---

CHANGE THE POLL -- how many of you shower daily [to enjoy the company of your spouse/OS] ??!!

Couldn't resist Martha (-- Sorry!)

Re: Showers

In Winter, definitly not, my skin gets far too dry and showering causes excessive dry patches.

I shave every second day, but I do not have a heavy beard, after 3 days the whiskers are noticeable.

I built a very large sized fully tiled shower, one I can put a seat in and sit down , if required in latter years, but I regret not having put in a steam shower.

I will be adding a water softener, this may help the dry skin problem.
