Prince Charles: take short showers and avoid tub baths

Take showers instead of baths. Oh, yes … and make the showers shorter.

That's the advice from the Prince of Wales (pictured). You remember him; he's the husband of the Duchess of Cornwall. The 61-year-old British Monarch-in waiting.

From a report in the London Daily Mail:

Prince Charles has told British families to take shorter showers to help protect the environment.
The instruction came at the end of a list of 20 lifestyle changes recommended by the Prince of Wales for his new green campaign called Start.

He is urging people to "snub the tub" -- give up tub baths in favor of 'short, refreshing' five minute showers - once a week.

Once a week? Are you kidding me?

That should be welcome news to body deodorant manufacturers.

Staff (servants) at Clarence House, the residence of Prince Charles, would not comment on Charles' bathing habits.
