You’re Showering Wrong

– Are you showering perfectly? – Let's talk about that (groovy electronic music) – Good Mythical Morning

– If you wanna be the first person you know to acquire and read our novel, The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek, you can pre-order it today It's scary, funny, and really good we've been told by our close friends and family members who we don't think are lying – Yeah – Get it at BleakCreekcom

– Now Rhett, it's my humble opinion that there's a wrong way to do something and there's a right way to do something but even more importantly, I believe that there is always a better way to do something – I'm family with your position on this – So today are you and you ready to receive the blessing? Good because I've prepared a presentation that is going to revolutionize and streamline one of the most important things that you do every single day Disrobe and grab the soap because I'm about to reveal to you A Better Way To Shower Now for most people takin' a shower is simple: you strip down, you soap up, you rinse off and you get dry, sounds like the right way, right? – Very straightforward, yes

– Mm, well just because it's the right way doesn't mean it is the best way (thunder crashes) Okay, that was lightning – Was that really necessary? – Well that was for dramatic effect and it also symbolizes the great rains our ancestors harnessed in order to shower Easel! – Oh, you're gonna use the easel to, oh– – Yeah buddy – And you have a pointer

– Look at me, I got a pointer! All right, there are three stages – Your pointer has a brush on the end of it – That's right – Let me say, that's potentially more annoying than my pointer – That's good, that's good

All right I'm helpin' you out Three stages to taking a shower: prep, wash, and dry The first step of prep is collecting all the hair from your drain to optimize drain flow Hold out your hand I collected this this morning

Now it may seem gross but you know what, you're about to take a shower – It may seem gross? – You're about to take a shower – This is house guests as well, I mean, there's nobody in your family– – That's Christy, that's me– – You have a red-headed uncle? – [Link] That's Lily, Lincoln, Lando – That uses your bath? – I got a curly-headed red-headed Irishman who just uses my shower and he pulls his hair really hard – Is that beard or pubes, that's my question

– It's best not to ask any questions – It got on my face – So what are you gonna do with that? – Well I'm gonna quit holding it soon I'm gonna toss it in the trash– – No no, do not What you need to do is you need to take that, put it out on your hair dryer, it's that rack on your back deck

We're gonna come back to that at the end, so just pretend that you're putting that to dry on your back deck like I do Right there, we're comin' back to that Next you're gonna want to start the water and you're gonna crank it all the way up the hottest so that it gets hot the fastest and while you're waiting, you're gonna wanna drape your drying towel outside of the shower but in a location reachable from inside of the shower – I respect that – You get that? And by the way, if you realize at any point while you're showering that you forgot to pre-drape your towel, you need to stop what you're doing, exit the shower and get that towel

It does not matter how cold you get or how wet the floor gets even though those are two keys to a perfect shower All bets are off if there's no happy ending, right? You do not wanna end your shower session shimmying naked and freezing on the bath mat across the room to fetch a towel (crew laughing) A wise man once said the moment of nakedness should always be minimized – Well he was moving pretty slowly – So as the water is approaching its optimal hotness, that's when you know that it's time

– Time for what? – Time to get naked (suspenseful music) And time for a new chart – Oh, come on (crew laughing) – Now, I, I didn't necessarily have to have a diagram of nakedness and it didn't have to be you They put so much detail right there and it is accurate in every way I think

– Yeah yeah, smooth as a baby – Look at the detail in the feet in comparison – [Rhett] Yeah I'm really lookin' at the feet – All right, would you prefer more generic diagrams as we move forward? – Please, yes – Okay

All right – Oh – So you get the– – Well we used all our blurring budget on the previous diagram – [Rhett] Well you might wanna blur that anyway – That's not accurate, that's just so we didn't have to blue anything

All right to get nekkid, remove your pants but hey, at the same time, loop your thumbs into your underwear waistband so that you remove your pants and your underwear at the same time – [Rhett] Why are you already in the shower with your clothes on? – That's not– – That's not part of it? – That's not part of it – Okay Just checking – I don't know

And also when you remove your shirt, you can remove your hat at the same time – [Rhett] Okay – Never pull your pants down starting from the bottom of the middle of your pants, otherwise, you'll end up lying on the floor like a grown-ass man gettin' his diaper changed Now it's time for stage two Easel! (suspenseful music) Washing

Washing – You didn't have to– – Washing – Necessarily need two easels for that – Washing – And this is an actual different easel

– Yeah – They could have just put new cards – Okay Rhett, at this point, the water should be hot You need to dial it into the right temperature and jump in, now if you gotta pee, this is the time to do that – Done

– Does that make you thirsty? – [Rhett] Mm-hmm (crew chuckling) – And now we wash Washing should happen from the top down, okay? Now I recommend standing on your feet and shampooing your hair first and make sure you don't grab the conditioner first If there's someone who has shampoo and conditioner in one, please stop, I don't believe in that I do however believe in Finland

– Oh, you're wrong about that – The best way to keep your shampoo and conditioner straight is with a simple song ♪ You put the shampoo-poo on the right ♪ ♪ And you'll be-be-be all right ♪ ♪ Put the conditioner-ner on the left ♪ ♪ And you'll make your head so blessed ♪ ♪ Poo-poo on the right ♪ ♪ Ner-ner on the left ♪ ♪ You'll be all right ♪ ♪ Your head'll be blessed yeah ♪ – Well they have labels – It's hard to read the labels and they look too similar – Okay

– You can't read in the shower, dude Discrimination So sing with me ♪ Put the shampoo-poo on the right ♪ ♪ And you'll be-be-be all right ♪ ♪ Put the conditioner-ner on the left ♪ ♪ And you'll make your head so blessed ♪ ♪ Poo-poo on the right ♪ ♪ Ner-ner on the left ♪ ♪ You'll be all right ♪ ♪ Your head'll be blessed yeah ♪ And then you're grabbin' it, you put it on there (crew claps) – Really? – Now let the shampoo rinse down your body

This is what I call the pre-wash body wash and then you'll add the conditioner but don't rinse it! – Right, you leave the conditioner in – I know (slapping Rhett's leg) I know you do some of this right already Proud of you – Could you not touch my knee? – Proud of you

(slapping Rhett's knee) Proud of you Next I wash my face with a dedicated face brush Try that out Feels good, doesn't it? It's my dedicated butt brush This is my dedicated face brush

So you just wash that thing around Now when you're washing your face, don't close your eyes for too long because shower monsters (woman shrieks) Close your eyes You see what I'm talkin' about? (crew laughing) I guess you don't 'cause your eyes are closed All right you can open your eyes now

You made it – What just happened? – Shower monsters (woman shrieks) Next you're gonna wanna suds up your loofah and yes, you have to use a loofah, do you use one? – No I don't believe in those – So you suds up and then you turn the water off entirely No water

– Okay – You don't need it and though you may want it, not having it will make you much more grateful when it returns, plus, this maximizes your sudsability, saves water in the process Then you're gonna wanna scrub it all, neck down If it hides, expose it If it flops, lift it

– Oh God – And there's no shame in takin' a knee to wash the bottom of your feet But make sure you get everything And then you're gonna wanna re-engage the water to hotness and commence the glorious rinse Of course that's top down

If it hides, expose it, if it flops, lift it – What are you, what do you have that– – If it flops– – That flops that big? – Lift it I'm speaking for grandmas here too Everybody needs to have the perfect shower And please do not rush this rinse moment

This is the climax of your shower (thunder crashing) And it should be close to the end if there's the lightning storm (both chuckling) Now you're ready for the third and final stage Dry! Dry! Dry! Step one, do not grab your towel Did you know that you were born with two shower squeegees on your body? – No

– They're on the ends of your wrists, Rhett Use your hands to squeegee off your body Right there, right there, right there – Show me what happens with the parts that flop – Lift it, squeegee it

– Oh on the, wow – Arms, arms, body, I do this every morning, and then when I grab my ankles, I shake my head – Oh God – Grab my ankles and shake my head – He's not lying

– Every morning – He's not lying – Of course I'm not lying! I've figured this out All right you might say this is ridiculous – Yeah, I would say that

– Does this look ridiculous to you? The average American family washes 300 to 390 loads of laundry per year That translates into $600 US per year of cost associated with that, now, the American Cleaning Institute recommends using one towel three or four times before washing it I say every person can just round that up to a week, okay? But remember, you have squeegees on the ends of your wrists and using those squeegees, you can reduce the amount of water that goes into your towel by 50%, thereby doubling how often you can use a towel to stretch one towel to last for two weeks, so that means, assuming that you're doing towels as their own loads, that's 52 loads a year reduced to 26 loads per year

So a savings of 26 loads of laundry at 30 gallons used at $150 cost per load, you're saving a lot of water, plus $39 a year And if you stretch that out over the average lifespan of 72 years, you could be a millionaire (woman shrieks) A millionaire – I mean, 39 times 72, I think that's less than $3000 actually

– Less than $3000 closer to being a millionaire – Okay – Remove these (suspenseful music) (Link sighs) – Now you wanna grab your perfectly pre-placed towel while letting little to no steam escape from your shower and you wanna dry it all, again, top down If it hides, expose it

If it flops, lift it, and while you're drying, this is when I take the opportunity to encourage myself out loud I am the shower king I am a sweet peach who knows his worth I like me And then you've done it, you've showered well and you may exit

This is where the rest of your life begins Now you might wanna say that out loud as well Rhett, you can say it with me – [Both] This is where the rest of my life begins – You can have you butt brush back
