    I restored it for you. I saw the crumb earlier, but wasn't sure if you wanted it deleted, so I left it.

    Phone was almost dead, thumb pressing on screen to hold it keeping the phone on. First time for me. Usually it's hubby doing that.

    Normally I only delete duplicate posts and tag why

    I do strange things on the phone when I use it. That small screen and so many things to touch. Suddenly there are links EVERY WHERE! lol

    Spouse refuses to use any kind of deodorant. Only showers occasionally (Aspergers traits), and yes....he needs to use something under his armpits. :sick:sick:sick
    It makes my eyes water sometimes.

    I'm always shocked at the number of women who do not wash after using the toilet. I think the generations who were taught to do this are aging out and the newer generations were just never taught, maybe?

    When I was in grade school there was a sink in each classroom and we were required to wash our hands prior to going to lunch, wash our hands when coming in from recess, etc. When my older siblings were in grade school, they were had to have their hands inspected when they arrived at school...nails had to be short and clean, each child had to have a clean hanky, all girls had to have dresses or skirts on instead of pants.

    How far have we come from these hygiene standards for our children?

    Making eye contact with them in the mirror as I wash is effective intimidation. Probably helps that I usually have a look on my face like I just smelled something foul.

    I can't say it's the younger generation over here. I've seen all ages do it. The intimidation works better on the older ones. Younger ones don't make eye contact often

    Back to personal hygiene since I derailed this.

    I prefer apple cider vinegar rinse for my hair. Makes it feel clean and light and I don't have tangle issues with it.


    I quit plastic combs. I found the oriental wooden and horn combs work much better and don't cause static. Wide toothed wood comb gently and easily removes tangles. Fine tooth horn comb for styling.

    I use a body brush. It's supposed to help prevent patchy skin by spreading oil and removing dead stuff. I admit I use it because it feels really good.
