Another Quickie shower challenge check-in

It’s time for another check-in on the Quickie 5-minute Shower Challenge. We’re up to 100 participants now! Woohoo! Thank you to everyone who is giving this challenge a try and to those of you who’ve linked to it on your blog. :)

So, how are you doing with it now that we are almost a month in? Those of you who were struggling to decrease your shower time, has turning off the water while you lather up or shampoo your hair helped? Or turning off the water while you shave? At the last check-in post, a couple people mentioned the “no ‘poo” (no shampoo) technique and, for those of you who are interested in learning more about it, I might have a guest blogger write about it while I’m on vacation.

I confess I was getting lazy and had been pushing the 5-minute limit (or going over) the last week so I started turning off the water while I shampoo my hair and lather up my body and that makes such a huge difference. Now I get done in under 5 minutes easily.

Two more months to go. You’re doing a great job so far! Hope you will hang in there with me. And if you haven’t signed up yet, but want to give it a go, leave me a comment and I’ll add you to the list. :)
