Cold Weather and Long Showers-Why it’s a Good Thing

We all know that person notorious for taking extremely long showers. To me, it seems silly to spend an hour of the day standing under running water; it’s wasteful in a list of ways. Coming off of that, I’ve never been one to spend a lot of time in the shower. I get in and out. However, in the presence of these bitter cold days we’ve been having, there’s something about the comforting feeling of complete warmth that surrenders me to become a shower-stander. I have been far from stingy with my past few showers, to say the least. It takes a lot of self-convincing to cut off the shower of heated protection, and step out into the cold.

So, my point in all of this- long showers are wasteful, but they are far too attractive to resist this time of year. So, while the water bill may go up a few dollars, there are other ways to save. One big reason the warm showers are nice is because we rarely turn the heat on. Yes, it is pretty cold, but there’s also something comforting about throwing on sweaters and sweatpants and curling up in a blanket (just have to be real tough through in between period of getting out of shower and getting dressed).

One last saving tip. Brush your teeth and shave in the shower! Since there is already a commitment to taking an overly long shower, why not use that time to do other things that use water? Save a few minutes of running sink water by getting it done in the shower, and what better way of doing this than using a fog-free shower mirror? It’s a win-win. So, when the holiday season rolls around, think about all the shower-standers you know. Help them save (some) water and encourage them to be as productive as possible during their elongated showers.

Plus, doing it naked is more fun. Can’t argue with it until you try. So remember, shave naked, shave well, and get your shower on.

For the man or woman in your life that appreciates the small things or wants to be up-to-date on trending items, this is the perfect gift. The company is seeking to provide a top razor and blade at a reasonable price. The razors are uniquely designed, with great craftsmanship. The average cost of men’s blades is right under $4, but by sending the blades directly to one’s door, the middlemen are cut out and your price is lowered to 2$! On top of the “awesomeness” of the blade and the razor, the company not only gives money back but also requires employes to volunteer 25 hours per year. This is a company I want to support.
