Cleanliness, hygiene and personal hygiene habits have an extremely important place in maintaining and developing an individual's physical and spiritual health. In contrast, it has been observed that research on student behaviour for cleaning and hygiene applications has been limited in the literature. In this case, "What are the cleaning and hygiene habits of students?" It has emerged as a necessity to answer the question. In this study, mixed blending method has been used. The study group consisted of 1300 students, studying in 12 different secondary schools in the city of Kars. In order to collect data, personal information form, "Personal Cleansing and Hygiene Habits Scale" developed by the researcher and open-ended questions were used. It was observed that the general cleaning and hygiene levels of the students were not statistically significantly different according to gender variables (p>0.05). In terms of the personal hygiene and hygiene habits of the students' significant differences have been found according to their parents' education status, the number of individuals in their families and the level of their education. Significant differences have been found in terms of the personal hygiene and hygiene habits of the students according to their parents' education status, the number of individuals in their families and the level of their education (p<0.05). In addition, the students' answers to open-ended questions have been seen to consider that they are largely used for cleaning and hygiene concepts, and that dirty-stained non-polluted is hygienic.
