Why and what happened at that time?
The longest for me was around 5-6 days, when I was camping in the wilderness somewhere, during a long break of my work in Western Australia. The area was dry (desert / bushes type), I got enough food and water supply in my car, couldn’t waste the water for bathing though, so I only did when I found a river 🤣

My record was 5 and a half. The reason being that it was too effin’ cold.
I can manage 22 to 18. Those are kind normal. But 13 degrees for almost 6 days due to trade winds. >.< Fortunately I have my Jackets and wind brakers. O_o;

I think the longest is over 10 days.. after I gave birth to my eldest son.
You know here in the Philippines, there’s a lot of beliefs before and after giving birth.
I just need to have minimal cleansing for me to feel good.

Just 3 days bro, I’m going to die without water that’s for sure. A world without electricity is fine but without water? holy cow!

I think four days.
It happened first time when my mom died and I was the one assigned to be at her wake in the evening til morning. The funeral had very cold AC but I didn’t stink though I felt icky when I got home (my mom passed away April last year).
My body was also shivering at times maybe due to being tired (I was awake all night even if no one else was at the wake) so I skipped the bath and rather got as much sleep. But on the fifth day, I felt gross like I was starting to smell same as the flowers in the funeral. Good thing a relative volunteered to watch for a night and I got a good night’s sleep. I bathed after I was well rested.

I think three/four days? I’m not sure though. It was those days I was too busy facilitating my mom’s wake and her papers. Second time of not showering daily was last December (2021), due to typhoon we didn’t have water supply. Hence, the no-shower experience lol.

Approximately 3 days. Haha!
That was the time when we were sailing somewhere in Murnmask, Russia (few nautical miles from the North Antartica). We all know that a ship is built in metal (no argue with that) So the extreme cold weather outside can easily be transfered inside. Although we have a heater and warm water onboard, i really can’t help myself to take a bath (or i am just too lazy that time) I remember i am using 2 jacket and 2 t-shirt the whole time. Imagine your body starts to feel itchy and you can easily smell your own body. But of course i also managed to go to the bathroom the next day. 🙂

A week, I was depressed after losing a loved one.

About a month. I was camping in a national forest for a Rainbow Gathering (bunch of traveling hippies and vagabonds living in the woods without money). I did take a dip in a river/swimming hole a couple times but I wouldn’t call it a bath. Once I housed up I took a shower and had to wash and shampoo my hair multiple times. It seemed like I was never going to get clean, lol. I was mostly dirty from campfire smoke. Just about everyone at the gathering hadn’t showered for close to a month and kinda surprising but most people didn’t smell that bad. I think that was cause we all mostly smelled like smoke from campfires, which I personally think smells pretty alright. I also don’t mind body odor much, but it wasn’t overbearing really.
There were about 500+ people in the woods for the gathering (a relatively small one)
Outside of that? I’ve gone over a week without showering while just being at home. Not super common, but not super uncommon. I’m bipolar so I’m usually depressed and for some reason when I’m depressed I don’t want to take showers.
