Paragraph 1

With the cost of living, many people are making cutbacks. In the UK, millions of people can no longer afford hygiene products. This has been termed "hygiene poverty". A report from the Hygiene Bank states that up to 3.2 million are affected by this. Britons are foregoing basic goods such as soap, deodorant, toothpaste, shaving products, toilet paper and products. They are facing the decision of eating and heating their homes and not buying hygiene products. Hygiene Bank described the problem as a "hidden ". It said the situation is "much more than we feared. It's increasing, and it's disproportionately impacting the most ".

Now go to   Paragraph 2.
