Everyone has a different definition and quotient of hygiene as an individual,agreed.But having agreed upon this I’m sure there are basic hygiene habits which everyone MUST know of and exercise daily.
I’ve come across people who don’t think that washing their hands with soap is important be it after coming home from outside,or before eating the meals or even after using the loo. Yes,I’ve come across such souls and it sucks to even think that you would be in their home,eating what they cooked et al !
Also, there are people who would not want to clean their house on purpose-reason being they’re tired and are no enthusiasts to do such chores-better option is it to let the house be on it’s own and chillax ! And by cleaning I mean simple cleaning like changing the bed sheets regularly-at least monthly if not fortnightly …but these types would not mind sleeping on the same bed sheet for say around 2-3 months ! Sigh !!! If this is the case what do you think about dusting the house?? No brownie points there folks..these people don’t even want to disturb the dust !!! They’re so generous,yeah right,huh !
Another types are the ones who would not rinse their mouths more than once a day-meaning just once in the morning they’ll brush their teeth and shall repeat this exercise exactly the next day morning ! Yes go on say eeks and all that…I’ve done that too on knowing and seeing people do this!!!
I’m astonished to see people who just don’t believe in self wellness. How could they just let their own body rot like this? Moreover, what are they going to teach their children? Sorry to say this but I doubt what their parents taught them in childhood…. did they taught anything or no?
As far as I’m concerned sometimes I’m rated as extreme case [read: gone case] of cleanliness and perfection in everything. Okay agreed that this habit of mine not only makes my life miserable at times [as per others!] but also of those who live with me. A small incident to share here- When I lived in hostel, in 2 years of that life I had 4 room-mates. No, not because their term ended and they left the hostel but because they found me very fussy about keeping the room clean and such things and hence requested a change of room 😛 Okay I know that’s not funny but it’s at least better than the examples that I gave above…
It’s always better to be fussy and make others stay clean than remain unclean and let others overrule your otherwise clean room/house and turn it into as if hurricane just it !
In my house and my life everything has to be perfect-perfectly cleaned,perfectly placed and perfectly handled. Initially my MIL did find it a bit irritating and difficult to adjust to my habit but now she has fallen into the line 😉 But hey the best part in my system is that I don’t expect people to arrange things and such that…I like things to be done my way and by me ONLY. Yes,again it’s a bit strenuous for me but that’s the way I’m.So, because of this at least others have a sigh of relief that they don’t have to run around to clean the house every now and then 🙂
But any way case in point here is not me but the people I’ve come across who compromise their hygiene in the name of laziness,saving water,feeling at home in unkempt house.. I pity them,the ones who live with them and their next generations !
What about you? Have you come across such souls in life ? Are you fussy or an easy going home-maker ?
