"Only one-in-10 of our continental cousins regularly uses soap and one-in-25 never takes a bath or shower.Troubling, to say the least.
To make matters worse, one-in-33 never brush their teeth, according to a special report by the weekly magazine Le Point, which quizzed 10,000 people.
Rather than have a good wash, many French people simply use perfume and cosmetics to mask their smell.
Despite this, adults manage to spend between 48 and 56 minutes in the bathroom every day.
Of these, 14% make telephone calls, 8% sing and 6% smoke - and 1% admitted to eating there."
