ĉu ĉiu matene, aŭ nur iam ajn?

And I've been known to joke (in English) about folks taking a bath, asking that it be returned once they're done.

¨Do you usually bathe mornings? ¨was not accepted, whereas ¨Do you usually bathe in the mornings?¨ was a suggested option which to me is not correct. Reported.

What I'm wondering is: would anyone else out there use ¨bathe mornings¨ or is it just my personally bad grammar?

Bathe mornings sounds a bit odd to me, so I think you would need "in the"

I think it is one of those things which looks odd written but is perfectly understandable when spoken.

I would say "bathe mornings" I would also say "bathe in the morning," but I normally shower.

I think it's probably fair to say that it is Americans who say "mornings" and English people who say "in the morning". (In this context it doesn't matter which morning; it's just describing a general habit.)
