You should brush your teeth at least twice a day.


Hygiene and cleanliness prevent diseases. Hygiene is about keeping our bodies and clothes clean. If we don’t stay clean bacteria can build up and cause illness and disease, spots, smells and bad teeth. Hygiene is also important when preparing food.

There are thousands of products on the market to do with hygiene claiming all sorts of things - but water is the best cleanser of them all! However, we do like to smell nice and plain water has no smell so we use soaps, shampoos and shower gels with added scent. When you've finished playing this quiz, go and wash your hands - a computer mouse and keyboard can be full of bacteria.
