    Ok so my teeth are semi-yellow,

    I brush them every morning and brush them really well at night with whitening toothpaste. I value my teeth but I didn't when I was younger (I'm 15 now) so my teeth are yellowish. I also use some whitening strips by a company called family wellness but it's only recommended 4...

    I'm going to have a rant now!

    I can't stand smelly teeth. Many people havent discovered Teepees, those tiny little brushes that come in different sizes that can slide between teeth cleaning in a way that nothing else can. Cleaning teeth is fine, but it wont dislodge the rotting food smell. So get...

    Personal hygiene is extremely important

    for both men and women. I always make sure I have had a daily shower and am shaved between my legs at least twice a week.

    This is 2014 and still in America

    and in other countries personal hygiene is not taken seriously. People take a shower and brush your teeth before leaving home, hotel, or other places.

    I knew somebody at college

    who showered once a week. How? If you have the means to do so, then do so. If somebody refuses to take care of themselves, they aren't coming anywhere near me.

    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 feel personal hygiene is very important.

    It not only gives you a fresh appeal to yourself but others too. It may also slow down infection and disease for women more then men. This is why I take long showers daily, or more often that, shave my body hair on a regular basis, (usually twice a week), I wear deodorant and...
