We all have that friend that disagrees with us on a fundamental issue of life. For many people, this is the age-old battle of showers and baths. The other battle of hot water versus cold water will have to wait until another day, because this bath versus shower issue needs addressing. This video provides an unbiased overview of the pros and cons of each type of self-cleaning measure.
Clearly, practicing safe showering and safe bathing is fundamentally important, no matter which side of the argument you are on. Without a doubt, tubs tend to harbor bacteria that can be harmful to the skin or health.
This could be partly because of the stagnant water in it constantly, or the failure of it all to wash down the drain. The shower, on the other hand, washes bacteria down the drain at a much faster pace. Showers tend to use more water than bathtubs, so their effect on the environment is constantly growing. Bathtubs, on the other hand, use the same amount of water for each use. So which is better? The answer lies in the time you take. A short shower or a long bath is the best for the environment at large.
