French/Mexican Shower

Posted by S. on February 19, 2003

My understanding is that "taking a French shower" is slang for applying a heavy dose of perfume or deodorant in lieu of taking an actual shower, while "taking a Mexican shower" is slang for washing what one can in a sink in lieu of taking an actual shower. Am I incorrect on either count? Thanks for any replies.
