when you need a reason to avoid bathing, make up some health reason like this woman. is she just nasty

When Barbara Ward was in her early 20s, she took a bath and it sent her into anaphylactic shock. Doctors concluded she was like the aliens in "Signs" in that she is deathly allergic to H20. Ward says that she hasn't drunk a plain glass of water in 20 years, only small sips of milk and tea, and that she only takes two two-minute baths a week -- which also cause her body to writhe in unimaginable pain.

It affects one out of every 230 million people. Ward isn't the only known case, however. There's a teenager out of Utah named Alexandra Allen who described aquagenic urticarial as a feeling "like your skin has been sandpapered down until there's only one layer left and it itches, but you can't itch it or it will break and burn and bleed."
