  • Take your clothes off, take a shower, then after you get out and your skin completely dries, smell the clothes you took off. Compare that to the way you smell after cleaning yourself. If it smells good then you didn't stink. If it smells bad, then you don't stink anymore because you bathed yourself.

    As for your breath, grab a spoon and scrape the insides of your cheeks. Smell the spoon and that's what other people smell when you talk to them if you're close enough.

  • Shower every morning and, if needed, every night.

    Put on deodorant.

    Put on a pleasant smelling spray.

    Have mints on hand.

    Wash clothes in a pleasant smelling laundry detergent.

    Air out your room every day.

    Keep your room clean.

    Keep shoes smelling nice.

    I feel like you can't smell bad if you cover all the bases, even if you can't smell yourself.

  • You can't because your nose gets used to smells when exposed to them for a long time. Since you are stuck with yourself 24/7 your nose will be used to it. The brain stops noticing the smell.

    Best way to tell is walk around other people and if you notice any face expressions changing to unpleasant looks. Probably should assume you don't smell to great.

  • Seriously you have to bathe first, then check your used clothing and bedding. You'll find out. It ain't pretty sometimes. :)

  • Rub some cloth on typically malodorous parts, wait a bit and then smell it. To check your breath lick your wrist, wait a bit then smell it.
