Superheroes and Villains of Bathroom Britain in Lockdown
Pandemic Showering Profiles
With almost all aspects of daily life being altered amidst the unprecedented Coronavirus pandemic, Big Bathroom Shop has conducted some research into the effect that lockdown has had on the UK’s bathroom habits.
Who’s washing more? Who’s washing less? Who’s keeping everything from their bathtub to shower mat in tip top sparkling condition with constant cleaning?
Read on for an insight into the profile of the superheroes, average Joes and supervillains of bathroom Britain in lockdown…
Bathroom Britain Superhero Survey Stats
To start with, we take a look at the profile of Britain’s bathroom superhero since lockdown, zoning in on their showering and cleaning habits, as well as some of their general lifestyle traits and routines.
First things first, where does this beacon of bathroom greatness hail from?
Well, from the survey we conducted (1000 people), we gleamed that 39 per cent of the Northern Irish contingent were cleaning their bathroom more often than previously – significantly up on other regions.
So it’s only right that this 23-year-old, accounting for a portion of the 29% of 18-24 year olds also showering more regularly since lockdown, shares the same nationality as George Best and Liam Neeson.
Our knight in glistening, gleaming, ultra-shining armour is currently working from home, but takes a shower first thing in the morning and late in the evening. Plus, they often use some of their lunch break to squeeze in some exercise, so it’s not out of the ordinary for them to make use of their shower system three times in a single day!
Proprietor of the ‘Bubbly Bicep Cleanse’, this bathroom king is among the 27% of those surveyed to clean his bathmat on a weekly basis, and in the 28% that washes their bath towel at least twice a week.
He’s included in the 8% surveyed demographic that cleans their toilet daily, as well as the 25% that does the same with their shower. Furthermore, this super scrubsman is in the 14% that will tend to their shower screen every few days, and the 12% that cleans the bathtub after each and every use.
A cool coconut scent radiates from this powerfully pristine master of cleanliness as he wages war on gruesome grime!
Overall Sparkle Factor: 99
Bathroom Britain Average Joe Survey Stats
Iiiiiin the neutral corner, hailing from South East England, a part of the 32% of inhabitants from the area to clean their bathroom more often during lockdown…AVERAGE JOE!
He might be a tad old for a professional boxing bout at 65, but is among the 65+ age demographic of which 66% have failed to adjust their shower habits at all throughout the pandemic.
Recently retired, our super generic soapster participates in light exercise two to three times a week in the form of walking and gentle jogging. The ‘Foamy Face Scrub’ is the coup de grace with regards to their washing antics.
In terms of bathroom cleaning, our Average Joe is among the 13% to tend to their bathmat on a monthly basis, and part of the 39% that freshen up their bath towel weekly.
They count among the 29% to tackle their toilet every few days, and the 27% who clean their bathtub each week. Meanwhile, zoning in on the shower itself, AJ is amongst a 26% portion of those surveyed who’ll clean their shower weekly, and of the 21% that will scrub their shower screen with the same regularity.
When life gives this guy lemons, he makes his favourite shower gel out of it!
Overall Sparkle Factor: 60
Bathroom Britain Supervillain Survey Stats
Finally, our Scottish supervillain will strike fear into clean freaks around the globe with their lockdown showering and cleansing routines.
At 32 years old, she sits within the four per cent of the surveyed audience who are actually showering less since the introduction of various government restrictions.
Like our superhero, this hardly clean crusader is working from home but doesn’t view a morning shower as an essential kick-starter of their day. She also indulges in little exercise and rarely leaves the house at all barring essential shopping trips.
This mistress of cleansing malpractice is among the 15% of people asked who admitted they don’t use a bathmat, and of the lowly three per cent that said they wash their bath towel bi-monthly or even less frequently.
She’s in the 8% that will only tend to their toilet monthly, and the 6% that clean their bathtub equally as infrequently. The shower is even more neglected cleaning-wise though, with the tarnished tyrant of the three per cent to clean the system every few months, and the 5% that clean the shower screen about twice a year.
On the rare occasion she does hit the shower, expect this lethargic leg washer to be armed with her favourite lavender shower gel.
Selecting the perfect basin waste is actually more important than you think. In this guide we look at this often overlooked bathroom item in more detail.
