1. Scrub behind your ears.

“As someone who used to be a hairstylist, please scrub behind your ears! More people than you think forget to clean the crease behind their ears and have yellow/white/sometimes green if it hasn’t been cleaned in a really long time gunk in the fold behind their ears! It’s really nasty and smells.”


2. Wash your arse crack in the shower.

“Wash your arse crack in the shower. It’s one of the sweatiest parts of your body.”


3. Scrape your tongue, all the gunk off.

“Scrape your tongue, all the gunk off. It’s what causes bad breath. Eh, srsly! Daily.”


4. Piss on your feet every time you shower.

“If you’re prone to smelly feet, piss on them every time you shower. The urea kills bacteria. Remember to wash them afterwards, though :).”


5. Wash your mildew-ridden towels!

“Wash your mildew-ridden towels!

There are a ton of people that seemingly can’t smell mildew, and they’re clueless as to how bad they stink. I meet a handful of people each week that reek of it. If you have a towel that you use each day after showering, and haven’t changed in weeks, chances are high that it’s covered with the stuff.

Wet and damp areas are the perfect breeding ground for mildew, keep your towels dry, and swap them out/wash them regularly.”


6. Swish some coconut oil around in your mouth for a few minutes every morning.

“Swish some coconut oil around in your mouth for a few minutes every morning. It’s called oil pulling and it’s very good for you.”


7. Clean your feet thoroughly when you shower.

“When you shower, really clean your feet. Get in between your toes, underneath, etc. Make sure you clean them thoroughly!”


8. Use a washcloth.

“Use a washcloth. You will notice a difference in how clean you smell at the end of the day versus just soaping yourself with the bar. Cloth removes a lot more grime and dirt than just water running over you.”


9. After showering, dry your undercarriage off with a fan.

“After a shower, I stand or squat over my fan for a minute to air dry my undercarriage, especially in the summer. It’s a glorious feeling.”


10. Cut your fingernails every Thursday.

“Cut your fingernails every Thursday, so they’ll be dull by Friday night.”
