Categories: Health and Medicine | Society

Who would have thought that the hygiene rules of the inhabitants of civilized countries can have so many differences! For example, did you know that in the representation of the same French women, you wash your hands and wash your face completely incorrectly? Or are you making a big mistake when you wash the dishes right after eating?

What else in the hygiene of Russian women shocks European women, read in our material.

Washing

"Not like everyone else": what rules of hygiene of Russians shock residents of other countries

Surely, you wash your face under running water. European women plug the drain in the sink, collect water and only then begin to wash. This is done in order to save money. And there are so economical Europeans, in whose houses all family members wash in the same water…

Agree, it's not very pleasant.

Taking a shower

How do we shower? We lather the body, wash the head, brush our teeth, make a face mask, think about life, sing songs and all this with the water turned on. And why turn it off if you need to turn it on again in a minute? Say that to a German, an Englishwoman or a Frenchwoman, and she will call you crazy!

Washing your hair

If in Russia and If you go out into the street with a dirty head, be prepared for sidelong glances and quiet chuckles. In other European countries, this is completely normal. But washing your hair every day is not.

Local women wash their hair about 1-4 times a week (and of course, they do it as economically as possible). They say that it is by clean, styled hair that you can recognize a visiting Russian woman.

Washing dishes

"Our" women wash the dishes immediately after everyone gets up from the table. At the very least, on the same day in the evening, when a decent "slide" will gather in the sink. European women, on the contrary, expect the formation of a whole Everest of dirty plates, and then send it to the dishwasher.It often happens that in order not to drive a car idling, you have to wait a few days… But what if you urgently need a plate, and it's in the sink? Wash with your hands? What are you, why! It is better to go and "borrow" from a neighbor.

Lingerie

In this regard, the Europeans are much more "correct" than the Russians. If an Englishwoman or a Frenchwoman notices a spot or a small hole on her panties, she will immediately send them to the trash. Many Russians, for example, can wear the same "comfortable" bra for months and finally part with it after a few years.

Bed linen

Most of the same Englishwomen wash their bed linen no more than once a month, or even less often. Russians have significantly "bypassed" them in this regard — some are used to changing bed linen every week.

A recent study showed that about 500 thousand residents of the UK wash their underwear three times a year and only one in six women does it once a month.

Of course, the above information does not apply to all Europeans. Every rule has its exceptions. However, the fact that they are much more economical than Russians in terms of hygiene is indisputable!

Do you think this is bad or good?
