Recently, over at the Peacefulwife Blog, my wife ran a guest post entitled “101 Ways to Show Respect for Your Husband.”  This was an awesome list, so the Peacefulwife asked if he could come up with 101 Ways to Love your Wife.  After working on it a couple of weeks he came back with a great list.  I can say for certain that after the Peacefulwife read it she thought each way was spot on.  I decided that the whole 101 was a bit much to swallow at one time so I am going to post it in a series by the categories.

101 Ways to Love your Wife: Cleanliness

They say cleanliness is next to godliness. I’m not sure how that plays out in marriage, but there are some things a husband can do to show his wife he loves her in this area as well. Here we tackle cleanliness and how you look.

  1. Make sure that you’re clean– get that shower.

  2. Find a signature scent that she likes, and wear it often.

  3. Seat up or down doesn’t make a difference as much as whether or not you’re having      trouble with your aim!

  4. Clean shaven or full beard, let her have a say.

  5. How’s your hairstyle, does she like it?

  6. When’s the last time that you’ve cut your nails?

  7. How much of your clothes do you still wear from when you were in high school?      college?

  8. Have her look through your wardrobe for what she likes seeing you wear.

  9. Get rid clothes that she doesn’t like.

  10. Clean (or at least organize) the areas you are responsible for: your office, desk,      garage.

  11. Help clean up the table.

  12. Help clean up after dinner.

  13. Help train the children to clean so she doesn’t have to do so much.

  14. Don’t make more work for her by trying to be helpful and clean something and then do a bad job at it!

  15. Refill things that you see need filling (soap dispenser, toilet tissue, etc.).
