A shower, of course, is cleaner than taking a bath, but both a bath and a shower is very therapeutic for the mind and the body.
Some people sit in the tub to soak for a bit then stand up to wash and rinse off in the shower.
With a bath one can lay back and relax and soothe effortlessly.
To enhance and enliven the bath it’s delighting to add bubbles for a sparkling foamy appeal, and feel.
The only down side to indulging within the penetrating waters of a lovely hot bath is that one has to get out of the tub before the dirt retracts back on them.
This is why some run the shower afterwards in order to assure a total clean.
However, a bubble bath would indeed prevent that problem by the soapy waters enveloping and dissolving the dirt within the tub while also stopping a ring of dirt from circling around the bathtub once the water is completely drained out.
I use to take a lot of bubble baths when I was much younger it made having a bath more enticing and fun.
