Frog You Shower, Bath But Still Think Dirty?

Have any of you ever taken a shower, bath, shaved the whole works, felt great afterwards, then changed and went about your day, then the following day you were thinking of going out to the store, library, the park, out for a walk etc. And thought well I just took a shower or bath yesturday, so I am still clean right?

Then you changed and went out, only to return home and felt that you were dirty and those clothes are covered with germs, even though you took a shower or bath the day before?

What would you do, if you showered or took a bath today, and then wanted to go out the following day, would you shower and bath again or pass it and just change and go out?

What would you do and how would you feel?

I know wat you're talking about. Not worried about germs really, but feeling dirty? Yeah... Also, I wash my hands way too much...
Anyway, what I do is have a routine. Like, every evening, around 9 pm I exercise, and take a shower and wash my hair after that...

I shower at least once a day. But then, I can`t go out without having a shower or starting work. And if it was one of those days where I`m dirty and sweaty at the end of the day, then yes, shower number two happens.

However, on my days off, I don`t bother shaving the neck beard. Usually I can go about two to three days without shaving and then it`s clean up time. During the work week though, I prefer to shave before going out as I feel cleaner.
