How often do you take a bath?
When asked how often they take a bath, the most common answer was “almost every day” (89%).
This was followed by “once every 2 days (7.5%)” and “once every 3 days (1.5%).” Most of the people came in almost every day, but there were also about 10% who came in once every few days.
How often do you take a bath when taking a bath?
Regarding the frequency of taking a bath when taking a bath, 1st place was “Almost every time during the year (35.5%),” and 2nd place was “Never during the year (22.5%).” Nearly 90% of people took a bath almost every day, but just over 1/3 of them took a bath every time. It seems that there are many people who do not take a bath all year round.
What is the reason for not taking a bath? (Multiple answers) When we asked people excluding those who answered “Almost every time of the year” why they don’t take a bath, the first response was “Because it’s hot (40.7%),” and the second response was “Saving utility costs (37.9%).” have become. In the winter, soaking in a bathtub is good because it warms your body, but in the summer, it gets too warm and you can’t stop sweating, so soaking in a bathtub becomes a chore.
Please tell us what you feel the most strongly about the reason you selected above and the details of that reason.
1st place: Because it’s hot
It’s so hot in the summer that I feel dizzy when I get out of the bath (female in her 20s)

In the summer, when I warm up my body in the bathtub, even though I’ve sweated it out in the shower, I end up sweating again right after I get out of the bath, so I try not to soak in the bathtub. (Male in his 30s)

It’s hot in the summer, and I don’t want to sweat again after taking a bath, so I tend to just take a quick shower. (Male in his 40s)

If I take a bath in the summer, I’ll get mad (man in his 30s)

In the summer, it takes 15 minutes for the sweat to subside after taking a bath (female in her 40s)

* Particularly in the summer, when you take a bath, you end up sweating again even after taking a bath, and the reason given was that you feel dizzy from the heat. *

2nd place: Utility bill savings
I don’t want to use it unnecessarily as various prices, including utility bills, have increased. (Female in her 40s)

Because I live frugally, not just when it comes to bathing (man in his 30s)

Save money on utility bills. My water bill is high so I don’t use it to save money (female in her 40s)

Saves on utility costs. It’s eco-cute and the electricity bill is high, so I don’t use the bathtub to save money (man in his 50s)

Savings on utility costs. I want to save money on gas costs. (Female from 50s)

*
Especially recently, as utility bills have been rising across the board, it seems that many people are avoiding bathing in order to save money. Soaking in a hot tub will increase your water, electricity, and gas bills. *

3rd place: I don’t have time
After I get home, I eat and relax, and then I run out of time, and then I don’t have time to accumulate things. I can’t get up in the morning so I don’t have time to take a bath (male in his 20s)

When I want to go to bed right away, such as after a night shift, or when I don’t have time before a night shift, I take a shower. (Male in his 20s)

I’m so busy when I get home from work that I don’t have time. (Female in her 20s)

If I feel like I have to get my child to bed early, I end up getting late because of lessons and I don’t have time to get into it. (Female in her 30s)

Because I’m busy and don’t have time to soak slowly (man in his 40s)

* He says he doesn’t have time to take a bath after returning home, so he takes a shower instead. If you are busy every day with work and childcare, it may be difficult to take a relaxing soak in the bathtub. *

4th place: It is troublesome to collect hot water
I want to take a bath right after I get home from work, so I think it’s a waste of time to take a bath. (Female in her 30s)

It feels like it takes a long time to fill the water (female in her 40s)

It’s a waste of time to store water (man in his 50s)

* It takes a certain amount of time for the hot water to accumulate sufficiently, and some people seem to feel that it takes a long time. *

5th place: Cleaning is troublesome
I find cleaning to be a hassle. It’s easier if you only take a shower because the area you have to clean is smaller. (Female in her 30s)

Cleaning is a hassle. This is because when you come home tired and want to take a quick bath and have some time for yourself, you don’t want to spend time getting ready to take a bath. (Female in her 20s)

I don’t have enough strength to even take a shower, so washing the bathtub is a huge burden. (Female in her 30s)

6th place: No reheating function
There is no reheating function and the water cools down quickly, so if you and your husband come in at different times, you will have to refill the water each time. (Female in her 40s)

There is no reheating function, so it gets lukewarm while soaking (man in his 50s)

There’s no reheating, so it’s a waste to add hot water every time (man in his 30s)

7th place: The bathtub is small
I don’t like the bathtub because it’s so small and it feels
oppressive. (Female in her 30s)

The bathtub is small and used for showering (female in her 40s)

others
The reasons why I don’t take a bath are because I have a bathtub at home, but the stopper doesn’t work properly, and because the hot water is tank-type, it’s impossible to collect enough water to soak in the bathtub at one time. (Female in her 20s)

Since I live in a house for singles, I only have a shower in the bathroom. (Male in his 30s)

I’ve been in the habit of taking a shower for over 20 years, ever since I was in middle school. (Male in his 30s)

How long are you in the bathtub?
How long are you in the bathtub? When asked, the first answer was “5 to 10 minutes (33.5%),” and the second answer was “don’t take a bath (22.5%).” 3rd place was “10-15 minutes,” with more than half of the people soaking in the bathtub for 15 minutes or less.
Summary of survey results
We conducted a questionnaire survey on “baths” among 200 men and women, and found that
When asked how often they take a bath, the most common answer was “almost every day.” The number of responses was close to 90%. Regarding the frequency of taking a bath when taking a bath, “almost every time throughout the year” was ranked first. However, even among those who take a bath almost every day, the number of people who even take a bath is now in the minority.
The most common reason for not taking a bath was “because it’s hot.” It may be better to quickly wash your body off in the shower so that your body doesn’t get too hot.
The majority of people spent 5 to 10 minutes in the bathtub. This accounts for 1 in 3 people, and it seems that there are few people who soak in the bathtub for a long time.
