Cleanliness


Introduction:

        As we clean our daily use things at home or office when they are dirty in the same way cleanliness is very essential for our body. There are small pores on our skin which bring sweat out from the body. Dust and soil particles cover those pores of the skin. Hence, regular bath becomes very essential. Taking bath with cold water is very necessary for getting healthy and beautiful body. Many people take bath with hot water. Circulation of blood becomes slow by taking bath in hot water. Nervous system becomes strong and blood circulates in the body properly if bath is taken in cold water daily.

Many people take bath by dipping in the river or they take bath in bathroom in hurry. They call it bath but it is not a complete bath. Doing so is not good. Bath means to cleanse the pores of the skin. Hence, body should be washed properly with soap after wetting it with water. People who don’t use soap for bath can rub the ubtan made from gram flour, milk and turmeric all over the body and then remove it by pouring water. Mop your body properly with the help of towel. Objects for taking bath are tub, mug, hairy towel, dettol, ud colon, soap, scrubber, lua (pumic of torai), powder, moisturizer and small wood plank for sitting.
