My apartment only has a shower. I have a couple of vacation days coming up, and I'm tempted to rent a hotel room that has a nice bathtub. Difficulty: I am 6 feet tall and like 240 lbs, which means that a standard size bathtub is really unsatisfying. I want a big bathtub, ideally with some kind of heating element so it doesn't get cold after twenty minutes. How can I find such a thing? [more inside]
I saw a massive vase in the Pillowbook where it was used as a bathing vessel. Any ideas where I could buy such a item? I suspect it would be 40 - 65 gallons. Wooden barrels don't count.
My 14-year-old daughter has trouble sleeping. Recently she had good results after a long bath with a bath bomb from Lush, so she is after me to get her a bunch of them. But at (up to) $9 a pop, I'm wondering if there's something more cost-effective. [more inside]
Along the same line as this post that inquires about bath houses in Los Angeles, I'm looking for a place to get clean in The City! [more inside]
We are in the middle of buying a house that has no bathtub - just a shower. I have two smallish children. Give me some bathing solutions, please! [more inside]

Help me keep the 10 month old safe in the tub with her big brother. I went to buy a bath ring and... apparently those are now verboten. So what do people do? [more inside]
My house came with a plug like this. A few weeks back my wife unscrewed it to remove some hair and now it won't go back. It won't screw to the threads in the drain. It seems like the drain threads are slightly larger than the one in the plug. Maybe some adapter was there that fell into the drain? No idea. I bought another plug from Lowes that looked slightly larger, but it didn't thread. How can I fix this without getting a plumber to visit?
I'm cheerfully ensconced in a dorm room with its own bath. Yay! But it's one of those showers that just sits off in the corner of a tiny stall, with no real separation from the rest of the wash area. Ergo, water everywhere! So where on earth (OK, in London) can a traveling American get a cheap bath rug? If it helps, I'm right next to Victoria Station. Assume that I can navigate the Tube just fine (but would really prefer not to wander all of London looking for a cheap bath rug).
My Mom used to love using bath beads, but we haven't been able to find them for ages (We used to get them at a little red shop instead of a bigger store; I think it was a body shop inside of a Sears or Bay or something like that?) Anyway, I figured I would get her some for mother's day. This is turning out to be a lot more challenging than I anticipated. [more inside]
I am lucky enough to be going to Berlin for a week in September, and would like to know if some recommended public baths are okay. [more inside]
We are having bath trouble. The bond between the structure of the bath and the acrylic surface has broken, and when you step in the bath, the acrylic warps/bubbles. The acrylic is definitely going to crack at some point! What can we do? [more inside]
I love taking showers. Do you have any tips, tricks or ideas to make my shower experience even more enjoyable?
I want to take more long hot baths in the bathtub. How can I make this activity even more relaxing and indulgent? [more inside]
What do I do about this shower situation? The step down shower floor is a mess and has tile sticking up from it, it's lumpy and uneven. I'm in charge of getting this bathroom put together, and I want to make sure it's done correctly. Tools don't scare me. A long explanation with a SLYT. [more inside]
Foreign Movie Filter: I need help remembering the name of a movie I saw at the Verzaubert festival in Berlin in November 2006. I know that it involved a wedding where the Bride did not show up and it ended with 5 people living in a polymorous relationship. Massive details below the fold. [more inside]
Have two days to kill before we can get into our rental apt in London. Thinking of going to Bath or Salisbury. How do we get there and where do we stay? [more inside]
Do you have a whirlpool/jacuzzi type bathtub? How do you clean its guts? [more inside]
Please recommend hotels in the San Diego area with luxurious bathtubs! [more inside]
How do I get a new more comfortable bath? What is involved? How much would it likely cost, once I factor in labour and any other things it affects (in the UK)? I've never done this sort of thing before and haven't a clue. [more inside]
Totally girly but unique bath and body products. Who makes 'em? I mean besides Bath & Body Works, Sephora, The Body Shop, and Lush. [more inside]
