MA and RI Residents Bathe the LEAST in the Lower 48 States!
PU! A new study says that Massachusetts and Rhode Island are in a head-to-head battle over who bathes the least in the United States.
QS Supplies headed up the study, which looked at hotel accommodations in different states and countries to determine bathroom manners in each location. They analyzed thousands of Booking.com listings, using reservation filters to find the percentage of accommodations that have baths, showers and/or bidets in every country, every U.S. state, and every international city.
Cambodia was found to be the country with the most showers. They’re featured in 89.57% of rental accommodations there. Japan is the world’s bathtub hotspot. Italy has the most bidets.
When the study looked state by state, Alaska has America’s highest proportion of showers. San Francisco is the U.S. city with the most showers AND bidets.
Hawaii had the least tubs in it’s accommodations in the US. Rhode Island had the second least tubs, Massachusetts had the 3rd fewest. So… it can be said (and was in the report) Massachusetts and Rhode Island residents therefore bathe the least.
However that isn’t to say that we don’t wash or that we’re dirty! In fact, Boston came in 7th in the country when it comes to showering frequency. I guess this means that we like to hop in, get it done, and get on with our business, errands, or agenda. We don’t generally take the time to draw a bath then plop our bodies in there for however long a bath normally takes. Can you tell that I don’t help our “bathing” numbers? I don’t know the last time I took a bath. (OK that sounded nasty.) I’m much more Boston. I like my showers.
And now let’s stay in the bathroom and dive into that nail polish drawer… or cabinet… or wherever you keep all those little colorful bottles:
