It is a debate as old as moms, kids, summer, and swimming pools.  In fact, I can hear my mom and I going back and forth now!

Mom:  Time for you to take a bath

Me:  Mom, I just got back from the pool, it’s got chlorine, I couldn’t be more clean

Mom:  You need to wash that off of you with Dial Soap

Me:  UGH!!!

Well, apparently my young mind was not crazy.  According to a CDC study, 51% of Americans surveyed use swimming as an alternative to bathing.

How do I KNOW that NONE of these are moms! <g>

Swimming instead of an actual bath has a name, it’s called SummerBath.  Yes, some people seem to think that chlorine is more sterilizing than soap.

I still believe this?  You?
