Do you wash your legs in the shower?

For some of us, showering is the perfect time to unwind from the stresses of the day.

But the shower is also a place where you are supposed to clean yourself.

So, when a guy asked a question about a pretty common shower habit this week, he was genuinely astonished when the internet had more than a few things to say on the matter.

Conor Arpwel, a graphic designer from Washington DC, posed a burning question to the Twitterverse on Friday.

He even created a handy poll, giving the world seven days to submit whether or not they clean their legs along with the rest of their body in the shower.

But Conor was not prepared for the overwhelming response his simple question would elicit.

It sparked fiery debates, spin-off polls and forum discussions dedicated to understanding whether people invest time and effort in the hygiene of their pins.

Within 24 hours, Conor's poll had gone viral — It was even added to that day's Twitters Moment.

The leg-washer poll has recorded almost 800,000 votes and revealed 81 per cent of respondents wash their legs, while 19 per cent do not.

As the poll's founding father, Conor clarified his stance on the issue, stating "for the record, I do wash my legs but lots of people apparently don't".
