If you think you need to shower every day, you're all wet!

According to a study by IFL Science, people who lather up less often are actually healthier, because they retain a greater number of "good" microbes that help fight disease.

Scientist Dan Whitlock is hoping to get people to shower less by introducing a "shower alternative" called Mother Dirt AO+ Mist, which apparently battles human stink by using human stink – boiled down from actual armpit sweat.

While Mother Dirt hasn't found a large number of people willing to swear off showers for a long-term study, Whitlock insists he can vouch for the product, because he's used it daily for 12 years – and hasn't taken a single shower in that entire time. (Metro)
