Cleanliness is something that is considered of great importance by almost every living being on Earth. Even a feral cat and stray dog try their best to maintain this by grooming themselves. We humans, a highly evolved species, consider cleanliness as an utmost priority.
To be clean is involved in every crevice of our being. When we talk about cleaning we don’t just talk about keeping our bodies clean. Cleanliness is a wider concept which involves the cleanliness of all the things we use, like clothing and tools. It also includes keeping our private and common areas clean.
The primary reason for this cleanliness craze is derived from us staying healthy. It has long since been proven that diseases are more likely to spread in unclean environments. Many believe that some of the major epidemic breakouts that took place in our history could have been avoided by simply washing our hands before eating.
Other than health, cleanliness also appeals to the aesthetic sense of the man. A clean man, living in a clean house and wearing clean clothes is always more appealing than an unclean man in a dirty surrounding. There are many ways to keep ourselves and our home clean which could, in the long run, help make the world a safer place.
