There's nothing suggesting that the in-laws don't shower "regularly" themselves. A shower everyday can seem excessive. Depending on what type of work the OP does, come on, how dirty can you get? Some deodorant, a sink washed face and a bidet (to wash your booty) should be acceptable to skip a day in between. If a shower is needed daily, then try to take quick ones so less water is wasted. Nothing wrong with help being an environmentalist.
I'm sorry, but having smelled the people that come into my store every day, whether you work a labor intensive job or not (and some of these people with this issue are lifetime freeloaders, so they don't have one), some people NEED to have a shower every day. Not everyone perspires the same or have the same level of body odor issues.
I can't believe that taking a shower every day is considered bad. I guess it depends on the culture. My family considers it gross if you only take one shower a day (they take 2- in the morning and at night) and I get talked shit to sometimes for only showering once a day. I'm sure you'd be OK not showering every day, but no matter what you do you still sweat some every day. Unless you're literally sitting on your ass all day long from when you wake up until you sleep.
There's nothinng wrong with taking a daily shower. Some people need to shower everyday. I have oily hair, and if I don't wash it daily it looks horrible. Every weekday I either exercise or clean people's houses for work. so I will either be sweaty or smelling of cleaning supplies and covered in other people's dirt and germs, there's no way I am going to bed like that. Unless I plan to stay inside for two days I have to take a shower to look presentable.
There was a water crisis here in West Virginia last month. Some stupid chemical company poured tons of chemicals into the water supply so several counties, including my own, were unable to drink the water or bathe in it, or use it for laundry or cleaning. Some places are still having issues with their water.
Yep, #95, and also kids that grow up in households with pets are generally healthier and have stronger immune systems because their immune systems have to work to keep them healthy from the bacteria from the dog/cat/chickens/farm animals, etc. If kids grow up in an environment that's too clean, their immune system won't have anything to do and they end up being sick a lot because a sterile environment is unhealthy and they need a good amount of germs.
I think your in-laws have yet to escape medieval times and come to the present, OP. FYL
For a present, give them some body sprays and deodorant. Let them know they need it. Revenge
