My sis and I both work night shifts.
She says its better to shower before work. She thinks its gross to go to work without showering.

Me,I shower as soon as get home. My reasoning is its gross to lay in the bed dirty with work germs.

She works at the post office,and I'm a nurse.

My husband showers before he goes to work. He used to have a job where he got totally filthy and he had to shower when he got home.

I like to do both sometimes. (1) If I'm going to spend a Saturday outdoors I'll take a quick shower in the morning, then another one that evening.

(2) If I'm dirty in the evening I'll take a shower, and if I have to go to work the next morning I'll take a quicker one before work.

(3) If I come home after a long day of work I like to take a good rinsing shower so I'll be somewhat cleaner to go to bed, then take my normal shower the next morning.

It depends on the "day" I had. It also depends on how much energy I have once I have gotten home.

Both. I always shower before work. 100% of the time. I am going to be running around and being up close to people for 10+ hours. I better smell good. Then when I get home, I shower again to get hospital nastiness off me.

You *both* have good points on your respective reasons to shower either before or after work.

I'd say it can depend on the type of work one does.
My ex-husband worked night shift stocking grocery shelves, and he chose to shower right before work,
then come home & decompress, and go to bed-then he'd have shower when he got up to go to work in evening.
