Scots are soap-dodgers, Aberdonians are the worst

If a survey says so, it must be true.

Scottish people have been hailed as the dirtiest in the UK, according to a new study.

Aberdeen was named as the most unhygienic city, closely followed by Edinburgh and Glasgow, with the average Scot only washing three times a week.

Soap dodging is so rife north of the border that a stinky 30 percent admit to sometimes going a week or more without washing themselves.

Naturally the study comes courtesy of a firm flogging shower equipment. The firm polled visitors to its website and apparently 2,000 people responded – which is not only very scientific, but it also means that there are 2,000 people in the UK with sod-all better to do than hang around a shower accessories website. I think that’s scarier than the survey results.
