Do’s and dont’s of General Hygiene

General and Personal Hygiene are important. They do not become a part of your personality and personal grooming, but they also ensure that you are healthy and on the path of preventing numerous diseases. Few points listed below should be included in your life and routine. You should also sensitize the people around you, especially children, to adopt the same.

  • Keep your hands clean.

Our hands touch a dozen things a day and come into contact with a million germs. 26000 different bacteria can be found just on a single currency note. Drying your hands after washing is also very important. It removes the residual germs to a great extent.

  • Improve oral hygiene

Apart from brushing your teeth every day, flossing is also needed daily to remove the plaque between the teeth properly.

  • Regularly clean

You could use cotton buds and soapy water to make your belly button germ-free. Don’t forget to rinse it with water at the end. For stubborn dirt, use oil to clean.

  • Your feet too need attention

Change your socks daily and sun your footwear frequently. Also, do soak your feet in warm water, once a week, to get rid of toxins collected in the pores. Add lemon juice or tea tree oil to the water for more benefits.

  • Maintain menstrual hygiene

Have a separate set of panties to be used at that time of the month. Wash blood stained clothes in warm water infused with a disinfectant. Also, wash properly every time you change your pad. These steps can help you keep infections at bay. 

  • Avoid eating uncooked food outside

Eating salads is healthy but only if the fruits and vegetables are washed properly. Otherwise, it can lead to stomach infections, diarrhea and food poisoning.
