I take Baths due to the fact that i have a rather nasty soft-tissue injury in my lower back, the hot water helps relax the muscles, and i always shower off afterwards. I don't take baths to get clean, i take them to relax and soothe pains. I take showers when i need to get clean.
I haven't taken one in a few years. Since I shower usually on the morning, I don't have much time to take a bath. I can see the appeal of taking a bath after a long day to relax, I just have other things I could do besides sitting in a tub for a while to unwind after school/work.
I love to take baths, but... they are not efficient. It takes a lot of time, water and energy to fill a bathtub. besides, im tall - so i have yet to see a bathtub my size.
The last time i took a bath was a couple of years ago, it was some kind of resort for old people.
So... if all the cons are eliminated, i would love to take a bath, but less as an alternative to shower, and more as relaxation.
im surprised people wouldnt like baths. then again, i love being in water, guess not everyone does.
I like baths.
I don't have a bathtub, but if I did, I'd use the shit out of it.
It's a form of guilty pleasure, though, since I couldn't possible mentally overcome sitting in a bathtub filled with dirty water from my body. So if, potentially, I had a bathtub, I'd make sure to take a shower first and clean up that way.
I'm not a fan of baths. They take too long and I have yet to find a bathtub that I can fit in. Showers are quicker, more convenient, more hygienic (you know, what bathing is MEANT to be) and use less water.
