    I actually don’t take baths, but I would never hesitate to take one in my apartment.  In NYC, everyone rents.  It’s not a temporary thing.  So giving up sitting in your bath seems random.

    I do. I don’t see it as any different than if you buy a house (unless its brand new). Do you sleep in sheets in a hotel? How is that any different?

    I see a rental as “my” place as long as I’m in it, so if I wanted to take a bath I would. But I never take baths so this is totally theoretical

    @WillyNilly:  exactly what I was thinking! 

     

    I clean the hell out of any home I move into, so I would and do and have for many years.

    @mattsgirl813:  scrubbing bubbles solved this problem for me!! I had tried every trick and chemical to no avail. Bought this stuff and it just wiped away.

    I don’t really like baths, but, if I did, I wouldn’t mind taking them in my current tub. It was well kept when we moved in, and I’ve thoroughly cleaned it. It would have been a completely different story in the rental before this though. It was too far gone. No amount of Clorox would have made me feel like it was really clean, and, trust me, I went through a lot of Clorox before determining this.

    i remembered having this exact conversation with my old roommate. we lived in a beautiful apartment with 2 bathrooms so she had her own bath and was very adamant that she would NEVER take one in the apartment.i thought it was beyond ridiculous!

    I think if you are a clean person who properly cleans your tub on a regular basis you can take a bath in a rental just fine. 

    Fiance drew me one the other day after a rough time at work, and i lived to tell the tale 🙂

    As long as it’s clean why not.

    Not taking a bath in a rented apartment seems so strange to me!  If it’s clean, it’s clean!  Especially after living in it for years!  I grew up in a rented apartment, so I guess that’s where I’m coming from.  That said, I don’t really take baths.

    I take baths all the time. I’ve lived in my condo for almost 6 years though.
