I was inspired to ask this question by @paulina528. I know this is going to sound kind of gross but I only shower once a week and I only change my underwear once a week as well. (I'm poor so I don't have a lot of money to buy new underwear so I need to wear the ones I have to make them last. Besides this, I always put on scented lotions and perfumes and I brush my teeth as well as put on clean clothes. But could now showering for a week be the reason people tell me I smell bad? My parents also smoke cigarettes in the house so people say I smell like smoke too but I put on perfume :( why doesn't it work? Besides showering and changing my underwear, what else can I do? I obviously know these two things are essential to smelling good but what else?

Yeah you need to shower more than once a week. If you're too poor to run the water for a long time use a washcloth, a bar of soap, and the sink.
Goodwill also sells underwear.1
