Neglecting to wash and take care of some parts of our body can lead to serious health problems. If we don’t wash our hands, we can end up with respiratory diseases and diarrhea. Besides that, there are other body parts that require better hygiene than we thought.

1. Your belly button hides more bacteria than you think.
Try to analyze now how often you clean your belly button. In reality, it probably stays dirty even after showering. It may be a bit scary to hear this, but researchers say that there are 67 different types of bacteria in the average belly button.
How to take care of it:
- Try to clean it at least once a week.
- Use a cotton swab to clean your belly button. Dip it in rubbing alcohol and gently rub the surfaces inside. Use a fresh cotton pad dipped in water to rinse the alcohol out.
