How to Clean Yourself Up


Practicing good personal hygiene can improve your emotional and physical wellbeing. Daily showering, shampooing and brushing your teeth are a few of the basics you should make part of your personal hygiene routine.

Things You'll Need

  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush
  • Fingernail clippers
  • Toenail clippers
  • Pumice stone
  • Clean underwear
  • Cotton swabs
  • Shower every day. Use soap and a washcloth over your entire body. Use a pumice stone or loofah to remove dead and callused skin from elbows, knees and feet.

  • Shampoo your hair in the shower every day, and follow with a detangling conditioner if you have long hair.

  • Brush your teeth with toothpaste each morning and night for at least 2 minutes. Follow this by flossing in between your teeth to remove food particles. Consider brushing more often if you have bad breath.

  • Apply deodorant before you put on any clothing and use cotton swabs to clean your ears after your shower.

  • Dress in clean clothes. Clean undergarments are an especially important part of personal hygiene.

  • Choose shoes that match your outfit and are also in good repair. If you have foot odor, apply a foot powder to the inside of your shoes each night. Allow it to sit overnight and discard excess powder into the trash.

  • Cut your toenails weekly and do the same for your fingernails. Clean under your nails as needed, such as after working in the garden or making repairs on a car.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not wear clothing more than once without washing it again.
