    bathroom hygiene

    • Wash your hands after you use the restroom. Scrub with soap for 20 to 30 seconds, and be sure to clean between your fingers, on the back of your hands, and under your nails. Rinse with warm water, and dry with a clean towel.

    • If you don’t have running water or soap, hand sanitizer will also work.

    Shower Hygiene

    • It is recommended that you shower everyday.

    • Showering with soap helps rinse away dead skin cells, bacteria, and oils.

    • You should also wash your hair while showering. Shampooing your hair and scalp helps remove skin buildup and protects against oily residues that can irritate your skin.
