This blog post is going to be about the old debate of what’s better, to shower or to bathe? Everyone has to stay clean, but everyone’s different with how they wish to go about it. But what is actually better? Let’s look at some of the differences.

Which uses less water? The average showerhead pumps out 2.5 gallons of water per minute, whereas an average bath would use up about 25 gallons of water. So technically, the shower wins here. But it must be taken into account the time to shower varies, especially if it’s a low flow showerhead.

Which gets you cleaner? Everyone says that showers win here because dirt washes straight away down the plug. This is correct, but is not the whole story. Baths work great because soaking your skin helps shed your dead cells. It is also more relaxing for your muscles to be fully immersed in water.

Which is healthier? Both baths and showers have different health benefits. Warm baths can help moisturise your skin. The stereotype of them being stress relieving is also true. Showers, especially those with good pressure, can ease sore muscles. The steam produced from showers acts as a decongestant too. Cold showers especially have the most health benefits; they wake you up, stimulate weight loss, don’t dry out your skin, and can even boost your immunity!

To conclude, baths and showers both have their own benefits and suit different lifestyles. How can you decide between one and the other? Well with cast iron baths you don’t need to. They are strong and durable so you can easily have a shower installed above.
