Why you should shower before you swim
Do you shower before jumping into the pool? You will be after you hear this!
The choking chlorine smell that you notice only at some pools is caused by people not showering. The nasty smell is caused not by the chlorine but by the chlorine mixing with the dirt and oil on your skin.
This chlorine by-product can get so bad, that it can damage the airways of your lungs.
So please remember to shower before you jump into the pool.
