I usually start with chest/stomach, but if I'm planning to wash my hair I start shampooing first.

Top to bottom makes it easier to make sure all the mint jelly rinses off.

Hands to be exact, then the arms, then neck and ears, and then I go down to the legs. It's pretty odd. Then I wash my face and hair, those are the last.

hair, neck (back then front), left shoulder then right, left arm then right, chest, back, face, right leg then left (was that more than any of you wanted to know *laff*

Hair and face, that way the filth from up there doesn't wash down onto the already clean rest of you.

I take the top-down approach to showering. However, I tend to wash my face, neck and back before my hair, as I prefer not to have (bar) soap be the last thing in my hair before rinsing (my hair goes down to my waist).

Hair first. Then left arm, right arm, chest, stomach, right leg, left leg - I wonder why I do the legs differently than the arms? anyway, etc. etc. etc.

I start with the head so the rinsing process is more efficient, but I get the butt even before that so I can start feeling clean right away. The efficiency is critical when you haul your own water to a mountain cabin, and take quart showers.
like Hunter, I brush my teeth first.

I did wonder what had happened to your plaque! I liked that it was replaced with a picture of scenery - does that imply that you're in the ascent, or over the hill?  * wink *

Nine years since I replied, and my procedure has not changed much. I add a third shampooing because the winter climate I live in now makes my hair oilier.

I have since come to realize that the difference between one-hour and three-hour baths comes down to what I am contemplating at the time.
An additional change is that I no longer have a bathtub window, a parrot next door, or much sun even if I had a window. I can no longer readily pretend to be lounging at the beach during my baths.
