We realize that not every culture practices the same hygienic care, so we would like to let you know ahead of time how Americans practice hygienic care. In the United States, Americans like to smell fresh and clean and are offended by natural body odors that are produced by the human body. It is essential, especially in our hot, humid climate, to bathe daily and wear underarm deodorant in order to combat the natural body odors. It is also a custom to wash your clothing often to prevent them from harboring any of the odor-causing bacteria that may attach themselves to the inside of your clothing.
