That's your wife's problem. Let her figure out what to do. Whatever you attempt to do to resolve the issue won't ever be good enough.
Based on the thread title, I thought Thunderbrick had some more in-laws visiting.
I wholeheartedly agree. The wife has issues......IT is the worry and metal issues about smelling that are the real problem.
+1 If your wife/partner is sensitive to someone who has bathed daily, the problem is not your mother. Air out the house two days after cooking bacon??? I seriously hope this is hyperbole. I mean, a hound dog would have trouble with that.
No, this does NOT belong in the Karma Circle, we are NOT giving away anyone's mother.
And I would say it is your wife's internal problem, not yours.
I think you mean say twice per day, mainly before sleep.
Nope, twice per WEEK. The elderly skin and scalp (age 80 and above) produce less oils and can dry out from excess bathing/showering, plus the concern for slips and falls associated with baths/showers. This issue came up with my 96 year old mother in-law who is discharged from a nursing home today and was their recommendation. Healthcare workers routinely complain of skin drying out and breaking down from frequent hand washing, thus one of the big reasons for development of hand sanitizers that include lotion.The amount of bathing/showering needed depends on activity level, social acceptance, diet, age, and racial background (some simply sweat or produce more oils than others).In general we've become hyper sensitive to body odors in the past few decades. Growing up on the farm we bathed weekly, unless the work was particularly dirty/strenuous. Oh how time have changed.
