If you really think about what it takes to take care of yourself, you actually do a lot day in and day out for your personal hygiene. Every morning and/or every night before bed (ideally) there's an unspoken ritual of certain things that need to get done. Brushing your teeth, washing your face, showering, deodorant, all the flossing you're lying to your dentist about - they're all second nature at this point, but add up to a lot of time and many are the absolute worst. Which personal hygiene tasks and rituals do you wish you could skip until the end of time?

We all know they need to get done, proper hygiene is impossibly important. Without it you would get sick more often, smell worse, look worse, feel worse, and generally just be that guy or girl, which no one wants.

But what if you didn't have to? What would you, in an ideal world, avoid doing? Which of these personal hygiene practices would you never do again if you didn't have to? Imagine a world in which your teeth brushed themselves and your legs shaved themselves. Or even one in which your beard grew in exactly as you wanted it to. Which of these personal hygiene tasks do you wish you never had to do again?

Vote up the worst hygienic things you have to do to stay clean and fresh that you wish you could avoid forever!
