It seems like a simple question until you realize how many people have a surprising answer to it.
Jenna Bush Hager and Savannah Guthrie weighed in on the debate that has divided the internet when they answered the polarizing question Wednesday on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna: Do you wash your legs in the shower?
Wait, is this really a serious question for people? It's not like it's trying to figure out the color of a dress.
Apparently so, as a Twitter poll by writer/editor Conor Arpwel about the issue has received more than 800,000 votes.
In the same vein of the question of which way you face in the shower being surprisingly divisive, 20 percent of the respondents to the leg-washing question said they don't go below the equator when cleaning themselves.
Do you wash your legs when you take a shower?— Conor Arpwel (@Arpwel) May 9, 2019
The leg-washing community was aghast.
?!?!?!? are there people who do not feel the need to.... wash their legs.......— ?100% valley mally ? (@malloy_online) May 10, 2019
I'm not gonna speak on the proper interval for bathing one's self. That can be variable on a personal level. But once you're IN the shower... why would u skip your legs??? If you wash your car, and skip the doors... did you really wash it?!— Ty (@MFN_Ty) May 10, 2019
I don’t just wash.. I scrub e v e r y part of my body (with exfoliating gloves and a wash cloth), everyday in the shower. Including behind the ears, belly button and every other place your mind can imagine. https://t.co/BpnZKiFnVe— Titianna. (@ForeverTitianna) May 10, 2019
That is an approach Savannah can get behind.
"First of all, I think I'm all stocked up on embarrassing confessions this week, but when I shave my legs, like Taylor, I think that counts as washing because I put soap (on my legs),'' Savannah said. "I don't even use shaving cream."
The argument against washing your legs while taking a shower is that the soap from your upper body will just run down your legs anyway and that your legs have a protective layer of natural oil so they don't need to be cleaned every day.
I missed the debate yesterday but I feel like you don’t really need to wash your legs, you wash your top 3/4 and the soap and water runs down. Unless you’re just extraordinarily dirty for some reason,— PAPI BLANCO ?? (@PizzaAndWhiskey) May 10, 2019
"I do scrub with a lot of soap,'' Savannah said. "I think some people don't wash their legs because they're soaping all up and they figure it's gonna trickle down."
The argument in favor of washing your legs is ... you're seriously not going to take a few seconds and just clean your legs?!
Damn imagine you found the love of your life...then you see her tweeting about not washing her legs— Robby Valentino ?? (@RobbyRav) May 10, 2019
We certainly know where TODAY's Al Roker stands on the issue.
"How much time does it take to wash your legs?" a fired-up Al said on the 3rd hour of TODAY Monday, before later adding, "Unless you're Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and you're 18 feet tall, in five minutes you can wash everything!"

Taking it a step further, does that mean people like Savannah don't wash their legs if they don't shave them that day? Sure sounds like it.
"I do not shave my legs every day, and I'm not sure I shave them every week,'' she said. "I'm kinda hairless."
"You feel like a hairless cat, soft and smooth,'' Jenna said.
Savannah has reasons why she doesn't bust out the razor on her legs daily. Jenna, meanwhile, says she often shaves her legs twice a day, including before bed so that the sheets feel smooth against her legs.
"One of the reasons I don't shave every day is first of all, laziness,'' Savannah said. "But I hate putting lotion on. I hate touching my legs. If I shave, I feel I must put lotion on. And if I don't, then I don't."
"I think you might need some sort of therapy,'' Jenna joked.
For the 20 percent of people out there neglecting their legs, Dylan Dreyer had some simple instructions on the 3rd hour of TODAY.
"You start from the top down. ... Set aside a good 10 minutes for a shower and you can wash all your parts."
