The difference between 洗澡 and 冲凉

Hi ChinesePod team, my question is this:
Hi, I would like to know the difference between 洗澡 and 冲凉. Is it can interchangeable use?

Hi Eddie,

洗澡 [xǐzǎo] is a more common saying for showering but 冲凉 [chōngliáng] can be used interchangeably. 冲凉 is a slang that originated from GuangZhou so it is not as common as 洗澡.
