A social media user has shaken up the streets of Twitter for close to a week now after asking a particularly interesting question about grooming.
Conor Arpwel took to Twitter to pose the question “Do you wash your legs when you take a shower?” to his over 6,000 followers and the responses were hilarious.
I can bet my entire life savings that, reading that question just now, you thought it was as simple as primary school Math.
Because, presumably, people wash every part of their bodies – including their legs and feet and armpits – while taking a shower, right? Wrong!
According to Arpwel’s poll, at least 20% of people out of the over 800,000 that voted do not see the need to wash their legs in the shower; that’s over 150,000 human beings.
According to one such voter: “Don’t legs wash themselves from the soap off the upper body?”
Another even quipped in saying, “You don’t need to scrub yourself head to toe. It’s a waste of time and it’s bad for your skin.”
Below are responses from some of Twitter users who answered in the negative:
Do you wash your legs when you take a shower?

I feel like my legs don’t get dirty 🤷🏽♀️ plus, soap and shampoo run down my legs when Im showering

I’m tired of hiding in the shadows, which is why I’m coming forward to say… I don’t wash my legs. Soap is not good for your skin! I wash all the parts of me that get smelly, the soapy water washes over the rest of me, but I feel no need to scrub all of my skin, thanks

Rarely. The hot water with soap seems to run down them anyway. Leg skin is in great condition. People forget we survived thousands of years without detergent like washes.

I DO NOT (unless I’m shaving) AND I FEEL VINDICATED AND CONFIDENT THAT MY SKIN’S ESSENTIAL OILS ARE IN TACT pic.twitter.com/NcZbPZnas4

FYI-……I have four legs. You open my shower door and I’m on my front paws washing my back legs and then on my back legs washing my front paws😂. Your going to think I’m crazy. So no. I’m not a frequent washer of my legs bc I’m not a circus dog.

Exactly if you’re showering the soapy water falls down your legs , men have hairy legs that sweat more because of it and hold on to the sweat. If you have shaven legs I don’t see why it’s necessary

A majority of Twitter users, however, agreed that washing one’s legs while taking a shower is an essential part of grooming and threw shade at those that opined that it is Okay not to.

WHY WOULD YOU NOT WASH YOUR LEGS (AND FEET) 😦
— K (@youlooklikeamom) May 10, 2019
I wash everything. What is this question?
— Ms.TymberleeChanel (@TymberleeHill) May 10, 2019
It feels like the correct answer is ewww, of course I do!?!

Not only do I was my legs but I had a special foot niche built into my shower when we re-did it just so I could wash/shave comfortably pic.twitter.com/eyFWhaTnSQ

Absolutely, if I drive my car or go to any place where I sit or my legs even touch something that’s an instant shower for me lmao.
