Rabbits do groom themselves, so it’s unnecessary to bathe them, moreover to submerge their bodies in the water since it can be traumatic for them and even harmful.

Then, you need to brush their hair once in a week; also trim it as needed. Claw clipping might also be necessary once in a while.

P.S. While you can’t bathe your dirty rabbits, spot-washing them using a wet towel will be enough.
