I read a report that said the average American only baths once every 6 days and only brushes their teeth once a week. Yuck! Are people really that nasty? I brush my teeth no less than twice a day. If I'm home or where there is a clean bathroom, I brush after every meal. I bathe every day. In the summer, if I get sweaty after taking a bath, I'll take another one before I go to bed. I clean the kitchen every day, sweep and mop the bathroom and kitchen once a day, clean the bathroom once a day, and wash my hands after using the restroom every single time and before cooking and eating and after handling raw meat while cooking. The study said that we could cut communicable diseases by 68% if people would just wash their hands after using the bathroom.
