Better to stink: Every third German doesn't put on fresh underwear in the morning
Be honest, put on new underpants in the morning or just use the old ones from the day before? Those who belong to the second group are in larger company. According to a survey, not many Germans take hygiene seriously. Some even refrain from brushing their teeth every day.
Not every German takes morning hygiene exactly
An international team of researchers reported last year that the smell of sweat due to certain chemical substances can make other people happy, but most are more likely to share the opinion that sweat smells harsh.
To prevent the smell of sweat in summer temperatures, many people use deodorants. However, experts believe that deodorant users sweat significantly more on other parts of the body. In addition, the Stiftung Warentest reported that only half of the deodorants they tested actually protect against the smell of sweat. The best remedy for "muffle" is still adequate personal hygiene. But not all Germans take it too seriously.
Many start the day without fresh underwear
In a survey on morning rituals, the institute "myMarktforschung.de" found that personal hygiene on working days and working days after getting up is the highest priority for Germans, but for almost half a morning shower is not routine. According to the information, more than a third of the respondents do without fresh underwear (around 37 percent) in the morning, almost half (over 46 percent) do without fresh socks. And: "A small percentage of just under five percent said they did not brush their teeth before or after breakfast," says a message to the survey.
Muffles or bad breath could possibly be prevented if not so much time was used for the smartphone. 37 percent of those surveyed stated that checking their cell phones was part of their morning rituals. Work colleagues and neighbors would certainly be happy to pay more attention to morning hygiene. (sb, ad)
