A clean person appears diligent, pleasant and inoffensive to others. Cleanliness has come to be associated with godliness, because it suggests health, self-care and respect for others who come into contact with you. Being a clean person can enhance your life.
Method 1 of 4:The Power of Washing
1Wash your body daily. Take a shower or a bath every day. Showering or bathing every day keeps you clean, removes dirt and allows you to use fragrant cleaning soaps or gels to add a freshness to your skin. Unscented soaps and cleansers are fine too. You are not a dirty person if you have no smell.
Clean all parts of your body with soap and a loofah, sponge, fennel or washcloth. Don't forget the parts of your body likely to harbour bacteria, such as armpits. Nobody wants to be around a stinky person and you may be judged as being generally dirty in mind, body and habit if you don't look after your personal hygiene.
