For an Excellent Bath ...
... try these enhancements:
- a Deep Water bath overflow cover enables a nice, full tub, as opposed to a wimpy halfway-up water level with annoying drain-gurgling sounds.
- if your home water heater cannot get that deep-water bath scalding enough, turn on the kettle while the bath is running, then add hot water as needed. (Be careful to keep the hot kettle away from bare skin though! This may seem obvious, but it's a mistake that is easy to make, and one you will never forget.)
- once I had a dream that I took a bath in a tub full of pink grapefruit, and for that reason this pink grapefruit shower gel makes a nice bubble bath. Add it near the end of the bath to avoid excessive bubbling, unless you like that sort of thing. Lots of bubbles look pretty, but I think they get in the way.
- if you can get a clawfoot tub, they sure are nice.
