There is a famous saying “cleanliness is next to Godliness”. By cleanliness of body, limb and soul, cleanliness of all our articles of use and cleanliness of our dwellings, we gradually move towards divinity. Cleanliness brings us progress and improvement in all fields of activities and in all spheres of life.
We should remove dirt, dust, stains, bad smells and garbage from our house. Purposes of cleanliness include health, beauty, avoiding offensive odour and spreading of dirt and contaminants to oneself and others.
Washing with soap and water is the easiest way of achieving cleanliness. Some simple preventive steps can ensure that dust and pollutants do not pose health risks. We should use floor mats and vacuum cleaners and sweep and mop floors regularly.
The biggest breeding ground for germs in the house is the kitchen. Keeping germs, viruses and bacteria under control requires diligent cleaning of kitchen surfaces with appropriate cleaning solvents. Wash and disinfect dish towels, dish rags and sponges with soap and hot water. Clean the appliances regularly. It is very important to stay clean if you want to stay healthy. You can only encourage your kids to stay clean if you maintain good hygiene yourself.
Always wash your hands and feet once you come home from work, school or playground etc. Never touch your food without washing your hands properly. Take a bath regularly and wash your hair and keep your nails clean and trimmed. Brush your teeth twice a day. Keep your room, house and toilet clean and never make public places untidy.
Cleanliness is a good quality and a man of dirty habits is not considered civilised. If we clean our bodies and limbs, we will be free from many kinds of diseases.
Clean food, cooked in clean pots and served in clean dishes will give us health and happiness. If we clean our bodies regularly, we will be fit and smart and have a cheerful mind. Cleanliness impacts every phase of social interaction, reducing potential profound health related risks and illnesses.
