We have an enormous Victorian clawfoot tub. That is one of the few advantages of owning a house that's over 140 years old. I don't use it often, but last night I steeped myself for about 30 minutes along with a Geo Phyzz bath bomb from Lush.

My sympathies go out to Donigan, who lost his tub in a tragic plumbing accident.
