George Washington's Rules - Rule #15

Today's rule relates to personal grooming.

15thKeep your Nails clean and Short, also your Hands and Teeth Clean yet without Showing any great Concern for them.

The translation is barely a change from the original. Our first President, as a boy, believed that a person's nails should be kept short and clean, that hands and teeth should be kept clean, but that a person should not obsess about them or become vain about them.
