The Shower Doctor

Despite some of the results being a little less than hygienic, these statistics allow us to look at our existing shower products and see if there’s any room for improvement that could influence the nation’s showering habits.

Edinburgh, Scotland (PRWEB UK) 8 May 2013

Last month the nation’s showering habits were exposed to the world – and The Shower Doctor – with some predictable and not-so-predictable results.

Conducted by Mira Showers, the survey uncovered various findings, including:

  •     Half of the UK population admitted to not washing themselves for more than three days straight
  •     Approximately 60 per cent rinse out bottles such as shampoo or body wash before disposing for good to ensure every last drop has been used
  •     Naming one part of the body Brits chose to wash in the shower, underarms topped the list at 30 per cent with hair coming in at second place at 29 per cent
  •     The most missed place whilst washing is behind the ears.

Director at The Shower Doctor, Kevin Thomson, said: “Despite some of the results being a little less than hygienic, these statistics allow us to look at our existing shower products and see if there’s any room for improvement that could influence the nation’s showering habits. With factors such as water pressure, how much time is spent in the shower as well as energy consumption to take into account, it’s highly likely that these play a part in how people shower.”

The study also revealed that the younger generation confessed to going the longest without a wash, but were also the demographic to have the most bottles of product clutter up the shower cubicle – with 60 per cent confirming the ownership of five bottles or more.

“Considering that men tend to have less hair to look after than their female counterparts, what did come as a surprise was the fact that men were more likely to run out of shampoo than females,” laughed Thomson. “Regarding rinsing out bottles before throwing away, it was the 65s and over that were more likely to do this – with 73 per cent admitting to it.”

Established over twenty years ago, The Shower Doctor is well-experienced in understanding the various showering natures of the UK – featuring an extensive selection of leading shower accessories including Triton shower spares, Grohe showers as well as Bristan shower pumps.
