    Personal hygiene is very important.

    No one should leave their home without brushing teeth, washing face, or having on clean clothes. A persons bad hygiene can affect others around that person so I wouldn't give no one something to talk about. Some have problems with breath even after brushing so heres when chewing...

    Don't stink! I said,

    don't stink! Nothing so poor in human behaviour than a stinky person. You may have your reasons, but even in the desert they can take a bath!

    Ok so I thought it was common sense to be clean

    and to try to make yourself smell good. But when you have a perfectly good working shower and a beautiful bottle of soap, you shouldn't smell like you rolled in **** to be clean. Nor should you smell like you don't even use water or soap to wash, instead you use SAND. Just stop

    Just a quick shower and clean clothes can

    improve your mood a thousand fold. Why must some people ignore that?

    Myself I bath once or twice daily.

    ..I make it a point to make sure I'm clean and don't stink...Seems like everywhere I go I get bragged on me how good I smell. Even at work coworkers tell me that also. But I work with a guy that stinks...He is a large guy and I think maybe once a week he baths..That's a big maybe...

    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.

    Tedious as hell but effective.

    I'm trying to convince my gf to be more hygienic but she's kind of forgetful.

    I shower an average of three times a day.

    I use a strong salt based soap, from a Dead Sea spa supplier, and I have a bath everyday during my 'awkward week'. I shave regularly. I'm meticulous with it.

    This topic is very important to me.

    I shave weekly to cut down on the hairs between my legs. I am in a bikini and do not want hairs showing out the sides of my suit.

    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.

    What's with today's world!

    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?

    Washing yourself multiple times week,

    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...

    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.

    Seriously, brush your teeth,

    take a shower, and put on clean clothes. There was this one girl at my college who wore the same hoodie every day for weeks and weeks. It had food stains, cat hair, etc. on it, and it smelled like a mixture of "off" odors from five feet away. There's no need for that madness...

    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.

    and it seems as if every time I do I see an EP that says "I Love pooping my Pants" or Just real nasty things people do to themselves. Last time I checked This site is called Experience Project, not Poop-My Pants Project. What is going on..? Lol

    Angry does not cut it.

    I don't appreciate having a very large man who stinks sit at the side of me on the bus and take up HALF my seat and then fall asleep and doze off into me in which I almost ended up with a stinky man practically snoring in my lap! wake up and get a bath!!

    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.
