    On behalf of the klal:

    Summer is around the corner and already the heat kicked in, with the sticky weather, I would like to ask a request from every person;male and female, there is something called PROPER HYGIENE.

    When everyone is having a great time playing in the sun and enjoying the warm weather, people tend to forget they sweat more and for kavod habrios, its not bekavodik to walk around smelling up the streets.

    So please, again, on behalf of the klal, please take extra care of yourself when you enjoy the summer heat!

    Some tips:

    * shower atleast once a day.

    * deoderant is very essential atleast twice a day.

    * brush teeth more regularly.

    Looking forward to a refreshing summer.

    Thank you lgbg.

    Another VITAL point about summer is to remind all to insure that everyone must be give their utmost care in insuring the proper Tzinius befitting and demanded of Klal Yisroel.

    This needs to be posted because showering once a day and putting on deodorant during the non-summer months is out of the question?

    My Rebbe once said that we should shower two times for every slice of keegel that we eat on Shabbis. Barich Hashem I shower a lot. I always shower eriv shabbis. I also go to the mikve every day so I am pretty good smellin. Everyone should make sure to wash their feet well after being toivel. Barich Hashem the mikvas are mutch cleaner than in the old days.I dont really use deoderint 2 times a day like the poster before me sujests. Ihope that its ok.

    Klerr, I’m sorry, but we will need to refer your case to the YW committee on hygiene for failue to twice daily deodorize!

    But your daily mikvah habit is a mitigating factor, and so we will all forgive you!

    good point. By the way, some people think that if they wear perfume they can skip deodorant but they’re obviously wrong.. (in yiddish it’s called oiven pitz inten shmitz)

    willi, I presume in your comment about using perfume, you are referring to women…

    I realize everyone is making jokes about it but this isnt a joke. Just remember (especially all you from new york) if you take public transportation there are nonjewish people there too, and it can cause a major chillul hashem. (Although basic hygiene should be enough of a reason to take showers every day and wear deoderant.)

    aussie- I use public transportation all the time. More often than not, it’s the goyim that need these hygiene reminders…

    In addition to regularly showering and using deodorant, I would say the next important step is to wash your clothing regularly, especially in the spring and summer.

    Deoderant AT LEAST twice a day? Isn’t this more like OCD?
