This is another question I have received often, and according to the amount of people that land on my blog after doing a search for "how often do the Amish take a bath" it is a subject that makes a lot of people curious.
As usual I can't speak for every Amish community out there, but I can share from my own experience of growing up Amish.
When we were little children baths occurred on Saturday evenings, but as we grew older they happened much more frequently. And no we didn't have some ancient tub we had to drag out and fill with water. We had a normal bathtub and nice hot running water.
LV once met an Amish man from a nearby, yet very different Amish community. During their course of conversation the man mentioned how life changes when you have teenagers, his daughter had a boyfriend and now thought she has to take a bath every week!
Not being able to have a bath at least once a week was a little mind boggling to us, but also a perfect example of just how very different Amish communities can be.
