I should use dental floss and mouthwash.

I should brush or comb my hair.

 Mrs. Park reads Ben and Pete’s paper. She smiles at the boys. They forgot one important step. Mrs.Park writes on the paper. Then she takes out something from the bag. Ben and Pete look at it.

“Please use deodorant every day,” Mrs. Park says.
