Happy Bathtub Day!
In the age-old argument of showers versus baths, it has to be the latter that wins out today on National Bathtub Day. The hot water and the scented bubbles allow you to relax and destress from a day on the go.
Is there anything more luxurious than sinking into a hot bath, filled with decadent bubbles or essential oils? Perhaps with a glass of wine and a scented candle. You can even read a chapter of a book or watch a movie or television programme, or listen to music. Or simply lock the door, turn off your phone and enjoy a rate moment of solitude and peace.
Plumbing systems date back to 3300 BC, with the earliest bathtubs around 1700 BC, which were found in Crete. It is believed that the modern bath was invented in 1828. They can be built-in, sunken or free standing and are made from bonding porcelain enamel on cast iron, a process that started in the 1880s. The clawfoot bathtub was wildly popular in the late 19th Century, having originated from Holland but it lost its popularity to the built-in version.
National Bathtub Day is celebrated on October 7th of every year. Spend some time on your bathtub, relax and enjoy taking a nice bath. National Bathtub Day encourages people from all over the world to enjoy a bathtub soak.
