A recent post over at Apartment Therapy about How To Make Your Bath Hold More Water, got a lot of strong reactions, for a number of reasons, the most common one being taking a bath uses a lot more energy and water than taking a shower. To be honest, we're a little surprised so many people take baths any more &mdash we've seen a recent trend of many people omitting bath tubs completely in their homes, and are instead opting for a larger shower with a bench.In the past six years I've taken a bath all of one or two times, mostly choosing not to because I've lived in rentals, and the idea isn't so appealing. While taking baths uses more energy and water than showers, taking a bath every once in awhile to relax and relieve a little stress is certainly understandable. But taking a bath instead of a shower to get clean? No thanks.
