Hit the Showers…with Strangers

Untitled drawingFollowing in the footsteps of popular rideshare services like Uber and Lyft, Three Men in a Tub, Inc. is introducing a new shower/bath-sharing service called RubADub. With the app, the company hopes to reduce water usage and energy consumption while increasing the amount of clean backs and bathroom backup vocalists.

“I take a bath every night,” says avid RubADub user Jasmine Limpio, “and I always find myself looking around and thinking, ‘Man. There’s so much room in here!’ RubADub makes me feel like I’m really doing my part to save the Earth, ya know? Plus, with my small arms, I have a lot of hard to reach places.”

Here’s how it works:

  1. Open the app.
  2. Immediately see people in your area who are planning to bathe soon.
  3. Tap on their icon to alert them you’re on the way.
  4. Grab a towel and head out!

RubADub costs $3.99 and is compatible with Android and Apple devices.

Note: Just before this went to press, Newsicles discovered a top secret project in the works at Three Men in a Tub. While we haven’t uncovered any specific details, we do know the service will be called WeeWillyWinky and is slated for release in Spring 2015.
