A young woman has sparked a heated debate after revealing the ‘correct’ way to shower.
Alexandra Lee, who goes by Lovey Lee on TikTok, was stunned to discover not everyone showers the same way.
‘I’ve just been informed by my mum that there are two ways people shower, and we just realised we both do the opposite thing,’ she said in a TikTok video.
‘Now I need to know, what is the normal way to shower?!’
The short video quickly caught the attention of the masses as many shared their opinion on the topic.
Alexandra Lee was gobsmacked after realising the different ways people shower – either facing front on or away from the shower head
‘Now I need to know, what is the normal way to shower?!’ she captioned a now-viral TikTok video which ignited a debate among thousands
In the clip Alexandra explained she faces away from the showerhead, so the water trickles onto her hair then down her back.
‘Of course I’ll turn around occasionally and move around,’ she said.
But her mother primarily faces the water to let it flow onto her face and body.
The realisation shocked both mother and daughter as well as thousands on TikTok.
‘I feel like the normal way to shower is with the shower head behind you.. is anyone else surprised by this?’ Alexandra continued.
‘It all started when I was asking for her advice cause we’re redoing our shower. I was like where should we put the shower bench?
‘She was like, “Don’t you want the shower bench behind you so you can put your leg up while you’re showering?”’ But Alexandra was left confused.
