How to Have Good Hygiene

  1. Wash your bedding regularly - when washing your sheets use the hottest water possible, and aim for every other week.
  2. Wash your hands often - washing your hands keeps you healthy and prevents the spread of illness. Wash before and after contact with contaminated surfaces, food, or interaction with others.
  3. Brush and floss your teeth - remember to brush twice a day for two minutes to decrease the amount of bacteria in your mouth!
  4. Sleep - Get 8 - 10 hours of sleep per night so you are refreshed and also keep up your body’s natural defense, your immune system
  5. Trim your nails - finger and toenails that are trimmed and in good shape can prevent hangnails and/or infected nail beds
