Personal hygiene includes personal habit choices as how frequently you take bath, wash hands, trim fingernails, and change clothing. It also includes awareness to keep surfaces in the home and workplace, including bathroom facilities, clean and pathogen-free.
Parents and teachers must educate and create awareness among the school girls about the proper usage of napkins and how to properly dispose of them. The following are some of the ways that girls must be educated:
1. As the sanitary pads and tampons can spread infections, they should be wrapped properly and discarded.
2. Do not flush a sanitary pad or tampon down the toilet.
3. For proper disposal of used napkins, napkin incinerators should be utilised.
