Bathing in warm water on Shabbos


The Sages forbade bathing one's entire body - all at once or limb by limb - on Shabbat in warm water, even if it was heated before Shabbat. This is due to concern lest one heat water illegally on Shabbat. (Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 326:1; Mishneh Berurah 326:1)

This includes any water which is warm enough that people would normally bathe with it.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:74: Rechitzah 1)

Have a great day,
