I always fight with my partner on this. He keeps saying its more hygienic to fill in the sink with water and detergent and sink in all dishes in there but I only noticed it makes less dirty dishes get oilier from the dirty water of the other dishes. I was raised by a doctor parent always thought you should wash the dish one by one under the tap soaping each on their own. There. I said it.
My (F20) little bro (16) has always been a bit lazy when it came to his hygiene. We thought that it might be his hormone levels that caused him to sweat more or get greasy hair more easily, but he went to get them checked out and they were all in the normal range. So for the last months my parents and I have subtly tried to get him to be more hygienic. He was either oblivious or didn’t care.
When lockdown started it got out of hand. He showers two times a week, while working out and I really don’t know when the last time was he cut his nails. He has literally holes in his socks bc his toe nails are that long. A few days ago I told him he needs to shower/ wash his hair more often or at least use deodorant ( I bought him some the other week but he hasn’t touched it) because he always smells sweaty. He brushed it off by saying it’s not that bad and he‘s doing the environment a favor by not wasting so much water.
Now he‘s been really into cooking lately and actually likes to go grocery... keep reading on reddit ➡
For starters, i am fully supportive of my bfs choice to use feminine products. If he wants to smell like roses, go for it. If he want's his armpits to feel like feathers and smell like tropical fruit, sure. I don't really care what kind of products he uses, but i really think this has gotten to the point where it's an issue.
I work as a waitress, while my bf has an office job. Before corona, we usually just met in the evenings when we got back from work. My bf always showers in the mornings, right after me. While he showers i go to work, so i didn't actually know what he did in there, nor did i care.
I picked up on the issue at hand when corona started and i was laid off my job, while he started to work from home. I'm actually really glad we got to spend so much time together, were both having fun and just relaxing. But about 2 month ago i started to notice that all of my products(shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, face and body cream, body wash, etc) run out pretty quickly, while... keep reading on reddit ➡
There was a similar thread last week with not that much name dropping so: praise the restaurants that have been doing well and shame the ones who have put profit over safety.
In Brazil, it seems like part of common-sense that we are more hygienic than the average European or North American.
Obviously, there are people in Brazil (as in any part of the world) with bad hygienic habits.
But today, having met many Brazilians from different regions, and having met a bunch of people from different nationalities (since i live in europe today), it seems true in most casese.
I don't mean to judge anyone, but Italians, Germans and North Amerticans i've met were kind of shocked by the cultural habit of showering twice a day, even in the winter.
Or also by habits like bringing your toothbrush to the office, for brushing your teeth after lunch.
I would like to know if these kind of habit and cultural elements are similar in other nations around Latin America.
Like seriously, I don’t know how to force myself to shower at least every other day and I alway forget to brush my teeth and wash my face. It is just that I always forget and I don’t know how to build up that routine.
I made a throwaway because this is embarrassing
As title, as a newbie for both CL and Racket, when learning macro in these two languages, I find Racket's macro which deal with syntax-object a little bit annoying comparing to CL's defmacro which deal with plain S-expression. After googling I found this comprehensive answer giving detail information about ideas behind these 2 macro systems.
It says defmacro + gensym can avoid macro code capturing user code, but not the opposite (avoiding user code capturing macro code), I have no idea what "user code capturing macro code" will be look like, and wondering whether there is something that can only be done with only hygienic macro but not defmacro + gensym.
My title pretty much says it all. I grew up in a household where speaking about the female body and hygiene practices was practically forbidden. I was just "supposed" to know. My best friend's mom had to teach me how to put on a pad, and other than that, I've only learned how to take care of my body and be hygienic through the period video we're shown in school as kids. I have never been to a doctor for any of my lady bits because my family "didn't believe in that." So my question is - what are some basics of hygiene that I should know? What are some "tips and tricks" I can learn from other women (like how to remove facial hair or what products to/not to use down there, for example)? What is something major that I might not be knowing about that I should really be doing? I feel like, since I don't know really any of this information or how to take care of my body, that I am not successfully being an adult, and this self-care would be a huge step towards that. Thank you!

People have this little voice in their head that tells them to judge other peoples' character based on their hygienic habits. And i think this is really disrespectful.
Some people are fine just scraping by, using the shower every other day. maybe one day extra on occasion. But a wide percentage of the world unanimously agrees that hygiene is crucial.
But a lot of those people do not understand that hygiene is not a religion. And individuals who may seem hygeinic at first to these people are ostracized when admitting minor gaps between their showers and/or their teeth brushing. people should not feel guilty for taking a shower in increments rather than everyday.
Am i the only one who feels this way?
the mental and vaginal hygienic clinic was a truly enlightening experience. here are the 5 lessons I learnt:
there are 5 menace stages. i was a stage 3.
masking is bad and completely forbidden. i will no longer be working as a LVSS chef - don’t want to encourage such terrible habit.
crystals have amazing mental and vaginal healing properties.
if your tack is over 1 inch, you need to start worrying.
visiting a disinfecting clinic every two weeks will prevent domestic terrorism.
i can’t comment further because HEPA filters mentions of facilities online and it could get me in trouble.
hope you’re all healthy and tack-free.
At the risk of sounding like a gross slob (which I’m not, because I still do everything listed here), I just had to get this off my chest. I mean, really:
Sometimes, it just seems so goddamn daunting

This is an argument for debate that the Christian Bible is a human made text instead of the revealed truth of God.
This mandate could have had a rudimentary germ theory of disease been phrased something like: "Illness is caused by very small creatures you cannot see. To help prevent illness thou will wash your hands after contact with any ill person."

When coughing or sneezing, it is always advisable to cover your mouth and nose in order to avoid spraying an aerosol of your potentially hazardous bodily fluids over every nearby surface. You should ideally do this with a tissue or handkerchief if you have one to hand, but if not then it is quite common to cover your mouth and nose with your hands. However, this is quite ineffective as it often leaves gaps, either between your fingers or where your fingers meet your face, through which the aerosol of your bodily fluids can be propelled with great force, and also because it covers your hands with those same bodily fluids, which will then contaminate every surface you touch until you wash your hands (ideally with soap and warm water for about 20 seconds or as long as it takes to sing Happy Birthday to You twice).
Accordingly, if you are caught without a tissue or handkerchief and feel the need to sneeze or cough, cover your nose and mouth your elbow. This is far more effective at coveri... keep reading on reddit ➡
I moved out in January and don't have access to a dishwasher, so I have to do the dishes by hand every day... and I just don't feel like they get clean at all. I could probably put an entire bottle of dish soap into the basin and scrub pans for half an hour, and they will still be covered in a horrible greasy film of cooking fats. And if I'm slightly less careful one time and wash a greasy plate before washing my glasses, all the glasses will be covered in greasy film as well.
Are there any sort of other tricks that make washing dishes more hygienic and maybe also less miserable?
Most people think that pigeons are just naturally filthy birds, but it's just because the water that they bathe themselves with happens to be dirty.
I've always been well aware and was pretty good at cleaning and disinfecting in a lot of ways prior to the pandemic but I admit I didn't realize how nasty things could be. Before this I would touch poles and buttons in public places willy nilly and wouldn't wash my hands as soon as I got home or off the bus. Most times I didn't even wash my hands before I ate which is so gross but it never was a problem before but now I realize how important it is. When I travel I would do this but for some reason back home in Edmonton I didn't think it was as necessary? To be fair, Edmonton is a lot less dense and a lot less people use public transport in comparison to NYC and San Fran but it's still NASTY.
In the past I would purposely grab handles in areas not as common to avoid germs (opening doors by grabbing handles a lot higher than the average area people grab to open them) but even then didn't wash hands after touching handles for doors and whatnot like I should have.

Fully, logically knowing that the stereotypes are primarily extreme cases brought on by many more factors than meth use alone, and used by anti-drug groups simply for spooks - no naivety to excuse my nonsense here - it still gets me. Congrats, party poopers. Ya fucked with my head after all.
I've used many (so many, too many) drugs since 6th grade - heroin and meth being by far the two most frequent flyers for me. First time on meth was at 12. Pretty sure 4 months is the longest period I've been without meth since. Using almost daily for the last year and a half or more. I binge often. A schedule of 10 hours of sleep every 4 days for several months on end is not uncommon.
I'm 28. Use meth very regularly, somewhat irresponsibly and have a very heavy, long history with iv heroin use as well (quit that one years ago, though). I smoke a pack of cigs a day. I love mountain dew. I love starburst gummies.
And I've never had a God damn cavity motherfuckers, yeeeeah.

I've been using paper towels but i wash my hands A lot. So i feel im wasting way too much paper towels. I'm curious if there is a better way while not having a washer and dryer in my home and not many hand towels.
I was talking about this with my friends and thought the answers were funny.
I wash my ass til it's sparkling clean already but if I think I'm getting laid I wash it til its red raw just in case a tongue might slip past/in it. I also use my strongest deodorant just in case I spend the night as well since I don't want to wake up smelling like armpit. I use my favourite smelling lotion (some lotion I bought in Germany idk the brand but it has jojoba oil in it) and signature scent (philosophy amazing grace, looking for other clean perfume recommendations too if anyone has any) and depending on the guy I'll use this vintage dusting powder that I have that has sparkles in it. I always get complimented on how I smell whenever I go out on dates here (people don't shower here) and meanwhile the dudes come on the date smelling like old laundry, but I digress. What do y'all do?
In Emacs Lisp you have doc strings that are first value in lambda of function. But is there something like this for Hygienic macros? I'm looking for some standard way to add doc strings to my Scheme based Lisp.
(define-syntax ++ (syntax-rules () ((_ x) (let* ((tmp x) (next (+ tmp 1))) (set! x next) next))))
Spec is hard to read, do you think that this will not be compatibile with R5RS spec or R7RS?
(define-syntax ++ (syntax-rules () "(++ n) Macro that increase the variable by one." ((_ x) (let* ((tmp x) (next (+ tmp 1))) (set! x next) next))))
Or is there other way to make doc strings. From what I've seen in example syntax-rules should have list of items in form
(pattern template), do you thing there is a place for doc strings?
In lambdas I just use check if there is single string that string is value but if there are other lists after the sting that string i... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am looking for a list of ingredients which can be classified as permissible and impermissible in cleansers, sunscreens, soaps, shampoos and so on.

Also, any vegan cruelty-free skincare, haircare brands someone would recommend from the subcontinent.
Hi everyone! I'm a student and I'm looking into replacing all my shower products with zero waste alternatives! However, I'm wondering how I can store them in the most hygienic way. I have roommates and we share a bathroom, so I can't really keep them in the shower. Everyone has a little shelve in the bathroom so I have to store them there. Do I use a soap dish and let them air dry? Or do I just use a tin? I would love you hear your tips and advice!
I think we're anticipating a cultural shift once life settles into a new normal. New work from home arrangements, less corporate travel, death of the hand shake, etc- these are the items people already talking about. I think a lot of industry is focused on these items, but I wonder about use of more traditional AV systems.
Will people be adverse to touching things like door knobs, elevator buttons and by extension- touch panel controls, HDMI cables, etc? Is there a way to make these things more hygienic? Does the future look like wireless presentation and either automation or control from voice/personal devices? What is everyone doing to adapt to these new realities?
I am coming out to say that circumcision is more hygienic than being uncircumcised because you don’t have the threat of an infection under the foreskin or your foreskin being stuck from not pulling it back when you were young.
Now yes I am circumcised but I have had friends who have gotten infections under their foreskin and had to have surgery to get it removed. Now I get their is basically no health risk to being uncircumcised BUT it has made my life a whole lot easier and my friend agrees it is better.
But, circumcision is better for the long run and care of your penis.
I'm a high school senior and my brother is a high school freshman. I have a car that I bought with money I'd saved from work, and I pay my own gas. However my parents pay my car insurance, so they said that driving is a privilege for me, not a right.
They said I need to drive my brother to school even though there's a bus. And the problem is that I get motion sick easily; even when I'm driving. Too much driving makes me vomit, and bad smells when I'm in a car make me feel ill too.
I'm not exaggerating, I've always been like this. As a kid, my family couldn't go on vacation without me puking at least once. I always make sure I know where my barf bag is on a plane. I always used to take motion sickness pills, but I'm not allowed when I'm driving because they make you tired.
Anyway, I can handle the drive to school on my own fine, but when my brother is with me I literally feel so sick because of his BO. Even with the windows on my side open

My sister is 22, the oldest living in the family household. My brother is 19. My sister, myself, and another family member, are all immune compromised.
Neither of them have a sense of hygiene. Both of them walk around smelling like she hasn't showered in a month, their hair is usually matted together, and they doesn't seem to understand that you need to regularly change and wash your clothes. My sister refuses to cover her nose or mouth when she sneezes or coughs, and if you ever mention hygiene past washing you hands after you go to the toilet, she throws a hissy fit. My brother sometimes tries to cover seneezes, but I don't even want to think about what could be living in his hands.
My sister refuses to wear pants in the house, and sits on all the furniture and scratches her ass and touches whatever she wants around the house. I find it pretty disgusting to do those things with pants on, especially if you live with people, and more so when you do it Infront of them like she does.... keep reading on reddit ➡
