Part of being a human being is trying to keep ones self as clean as possible. However, in scouting sometimes personal hygiene takes a back seat. If you’ve ever met a trail crew coming off the trail from a weeks worth of hard work you know exactly what I am talking about. Otherwise, yes, we do our best to be as clean as possible.
Personal Hygiene isn’t the only clean that is to be considered when addressing this part of the scout law. There’s also a mental cleanliness that does need to be considered. To water this down and to avoid any arguments what I am basically saying is that a scout knows the difference between right and wrong and does their best to walk the path of the straight and narrow.
