Remove your clothes and carefully get into the bathtub. If you are weak, ask someone to stay close by while you bathe. Ask this person to wash and rinse your back if you cannot reach it yourself. Use soap to wash your body and rinse with water. Let the water out of the bathtub and carefully get out. Sit down and use the towel to dry off after the bath.
