I Think Personal Hygiene Is Important

    I’m a clean person now

    but definitely wasn’t when I was young. Until I was 13 I would often wear the same under for weeks because they were my favourite at the time. That changed at a friend’s birthday party when his sister and her friends pulled my pants down so they could see what was there.

    Honestly, you don't have to be a perfectionist

    when it comes to personal hygiene. Just do the everyday things like brushing your teeth, groom yourself, be presentable. Wear clean clothes and deodorant. It's the basics. Simple basics.

    It is, who wants to be smelly?

    I take a shower everyday, sometimes two. I brush my teeth twice a day sometimes three. I use deodorant, lotion, perfume. I make sure I smell good, but not overbearingly good.

    I think and feel personal hygiene is very

    important. Because personal hygiene is so important to me, this is why I shave my long legs, underarms, facial hair, and between my lets so that I am bald for my personal enjoyment and male friend's pleasure as well.

    and grooming are a deal breaker for me. I want no man next to me who smells bad or isn't groomed!

    I believe personal hygiene is very important.

    This is why I am a shaved and bald between my legs. For the most part, being shaved eliminates some disease and a poor smell down there.

    I'm a freak about staying clean.

    I shower everyday, brush my teeth like a mad man and always wash my face and hands. I always smell really good and it's surprising how many people notice that and mention it.

    Just looks around men and women digging their nose openly, men scratching their armpits and crotch. Like seriously what's with the continuous touching of ur crotch in public? What ever happened to hygiene , cleanliness, etiquette, manners?

    I was taught as a child

    that cleanliness is next to godliness, it's so much easier now to keep clean , I didn't have a bathroom or hot running water when i was young , it's so much easier now , there's no excuse for not being clean.
