Why do some people refuse to shower/bath?

This person lied to me when he moved into a rented room, say he would get up at 4:00 am to shower and in the past 5 month he has only bath twice, and his body odor is starting to stink the house.

Be honest and gentle and firm and tell him to bathe... its not easy to tell someone to bathe.

Well this may not have happened to him but this one girl doesnt take one because when she was younger she always was abused and showers were the only thing to calm her and if she took one know it only reminded her of the bad times when she was younger im not saying this happened to him but sometimes you never know about their past thats why somone should never judge.
Maybe talk to him about it but be nice about it

You need to invite over lots of people. This person sounds like a 'recluse' ... look it up......have barbeques, and gatherings for any good reason, tea parties, bake sales, whatever. church people just love to invade homes, so have em over as often as possible. As for showering at 4:00am ( LoL ) you may have to modify that 4:00am rule. Its probably better to have a clean smelling house than a 4:00am rule .... ;-) good luck...

Sounds like the person must be depressed. Try being kind to them and asking if they need help. Just speak with them.

I would imagine why may not be as important to you as - What you can do about it. If you can rule out the possibility that he is not showering or bathing because he is elderly and has a fear of falling in the tub( a real problem) then you could tactfully approach him and tell him you are aware he is not bathing often and you are noticing an odor that is permeating the home and you are sorry but this is not acceptable. If he cannot bathe regularly he will have to move out. Good luck.
