National Shower with a Friend Day

National Shower With a Friend Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to taking a shower with your friend. This unusual day is celebrated on February 4th.


The holiday was established thanks to the American company New Wave Enviro, which has been developing and selling water filtration systems for more than a quarter of a century.

The company’s devices aim to improve overall water quality, in particular to correct the problem of high chlorine content. This substance has long been used to purify tap water, but it can have a negative effect on humans. Researchers note that chlorine more actively penetrates through the skin and lungs (during the shower) than when drinking tap water.

In 2014, a large-scale advertising campaign was carried out by the filter manufacturer, which later turned into National Shower With a Friend Day. The goal was quite simple – showering with a friend at the same time would save water and increase the life of the filter (because less water would pass through it). In fact, the effectiveness of such a company is highly debatable, but the initiative was massively supported by various environmental organizations as a great idea to save water.

Interesting facts

  • Many people sing in the shower. Psychologists associate this feature with the relaxing effect of warm jets of water. They help to feel harmony with oneself and remove unnecessary psychological clamps.
  • Experts recommend taking a hot shower for no more than 15 minutes, as prolonged exposure to high temperatures leads to loss of moisture from the body.
  • After a shower, it is recommended to wipe yourself with a dry towel only. The towel should be changed 2-3 times a week.

How to celebrate

Take a shower at the National Shower With a Friend Day with a friend or girlfriend. You can also refuse such an undertaking and just enjoy the relaxing effect alone. Celebrate this day as you wish!
