  • What Hygiene Habits Are You Embarrassed to Admit?

  • I am not a clean freak, but I can get super intense over certain bad bathroom behaviors. In the kitchen, I seem to be laid back -- I'll do the occasional double dip, drink out of the carton, prescribe to the ten-second rule, etc. But when it comes to the bathroom, my switch flips.

  • The bathroom in general freaks me out. It's a warzone really. Think about it: A small enclosed space where you poo just a foot or two away from where you brush your teeth (*shakes*).

  • If you've ever shared a bathroom with a roommate (someone you aren't intimately involved with, or love, for that matter), any clean freak thoughts you had before probably took a turn for the more intense. "Is that my hair in the sink?" "Do they pee in the shower?" "Did they use this towel to dry … down there!?"

  • These questions I believe to be inevitable, which is why I love companies making hygienic health and beauty products for people like me.

  • For instance: The "True Clean Towel", $19, which has a graphic design of a body on the towel, designating a specific portion of the towel for certain parts of the body. A.K.A., you will never wipe your freshly washed face with the part of the towel that wiped your ass, or someone else's, a day earlier.

  • And the VIOLight ZapiPOP Za-Za Zapi Toothbrush Sanitizer, $29.95, which kills 99.9 percent of germs that come in contact with a toothbrush, including strep, staph, H1N1, e.coli, salmonella, and others. Essentially, this contraption makes it so that you never have to worry about who is pooping next to your toothbrush again.

  • Am I the only one thinking about these things? What personal hygiene habits freak you out?

    • I don't like bathrooms! They are an unwelcome necessity! I really try not to think about it too much or I do get grossed out. I can not stand wet floors, toilet handles, and the bathroom smell...no matter how clean it is it is subtly there...blegh! I live with someone who showers and leaves the floors wet, and it drives me bananas! I absolutely do not go in the bathroom without flip flops on. Just grosses me out.

    • I'm so glad I am not alone! I'm the typical bathroom clean freak! I am really tempted to purchase one of those nifty towels :)

    • These are two of my big bathroom freakouts as well!!! I have a face towel and a body towel, I have two cases for my toothbrush, and I always close the toilet lid before flushing!

    • i agree with misspurple!!!! ewwwww i can't imagine brushing my teeth while showering! and im also weird about keeping the toilet lid closed (i hread somewhere what when you flush, all the bacteria and poo particles fly into the air) whether thats true or not, i always shut the lid before i flush!!

    • I get freaked out when people take a shower AND brush teeth at the same time, because that is just nasty!!!
