A new study conducted by Splashdirect has revealed that more than half of Brits (53%) admit to forfeiting a wash in the morning for extra time in bed. You might wonder what could possibly tear people away from a hot shower – well, here are the reasons:

– 1 in 5 (21%) of Brits admitted to avoiding the bathroom due to wanting extra time to ‘cuddle’ the person they’re sharing with

– More than 1 in 10 (14%) admitted to sacrificing a splash in the bath or shower due to being hungover (this is the one we find most shocking – who doesn’t love a bath to clean off the alcohol smell?)

Appallingly, according to this grimy study, almost 1 in 5 (19%) of us don’t even wash every day! 

There were other reasons given for grabbing a bit of extra snooze time, with a quarter of Brits leaving their make-up application for the Tube, and men avoiding a shave altogether.

If you can stomach it, here are some other fairly rank statistics…

– 13% of men and 6% of women don’t brush their teeth before work

– 16% of men wait to use the loo until they get to the office

That’s it. We’re getting taxis to work from now on.
