I have enough time to either take a bath or a shower.

Can I quibble over where you placed the "either"?

If you place it before the verb I usually expect to see two verb choices.

Either speak up or shut up.

In your construction I think that "I have enough time to take either a bath or a shower" better defines the choices.

Yeah....I know...I'm affraid my writings are full of such mistakes (both English and Spanish)...thanks for the lesson.

tomar un bañarse

Poli, esto son dos verbos.

...tomar un baño
...de bañarme

Estas dos posibilidades tienes.

"Tengo suficiente tiempo para un baño" is perfect; "tomar un bañarse" makes no sense at all.
