Mr. Lasamana and I have a teenage son who likes to work out. The problem? Son 16 yrs doesn’t like to shower afterwards - eewww.

He works out usually in the late afternoon after other after-school stuff. He goes to the local gym and then comes home and does his homework and goes to bed - all without showering. He has to be at school by 6:30 every morning for jazz so he showers around 6:00 am. I find this completely disgusting. His argument is that he doesn’t sweat too much and he doesn’t smell (which is true - we have an older son who stinks after 5 minutes and a younger one whose hockey bag could kill). I need a valid argument to combat this with. Our main concern would be what is he bringing home from the gym but I really don’t know actually what that could be. Is this just our cleanliness problem or could it be potentially truly nasty?
