Fun Facts About Showering in America

A steaming hot shower, as we’ve outlined before, is a great place to think about any number of happenings in your life – relationships, family, work, long forgotten tasks. But rarely does your mind land on the act of showering itself.

Here are a few fun facts about showering in America.

– The average shower in America lasts roughly 13 minutes, and as a country we take roughly 6.7 showers per week, with men out-showering women. Americans prefer to shower in the morning versus the night, as nearly 60% choose to rise and shine and lather and rinse.
– Showering doesn’t equal washing one’s hair, which happens on average 5.7 times per week. In fact, only three out of ten people shampoo their hair daily.
– Singing in the shower is a reflex of happiness and relaxation, but another great reason why people belt out while the water sprays? Because no one can hear them.
– Do you dry off inside or outside the shower? The most popular answer is to towel off as soon as your feet hit the bath mat outside the shower.
– Most shower owners long for a larger shower, as nearly 52% wish their shower had more space.
– A recent survey from Buzzfeed revealed that nearly seven out of ten people shower with their backs facing the showerhead, while three out of ten people like the water to hit them in the face.
– As far as a bathing order of operations goes, four out of five people wash their hair before their body.
– Over half of people turn their showerheads all the way up to get the temperature as high as possible.
– Nearly 75% of all people pee in the shower.
– Average showers can use anywhere between 25 and 75 gallons of water, which is considerably more than baths.
– Want to conserve water while you shower? Try a Navy shower, which is a method borrowed from ships where you jump in, get wet, immediately turn the water off while you scrub, and turn it back on to rinse. This practice can use up to 20 times less water than a regular shower.

Great service, great prices!
I called several local MoCo companies and none compare to the services I got from MFS. Don’t waste your time shopping around, MFS is the best.

After talking with several shower door company’s, I am very glad that I decided to go with Maryland Frameless Showers. There was great communication throughout the entire process. I like that the owner, Jim, came out to measure my shower and listened to what i wanted. He did what other companies told me was not possible! The price was fair and no one tried to “upsell” me products that I did not need. Our new shower looks fantastic and I highly recommend this company.
