You'd think spending your whole life swimming around in water would negate the necessity for a spruce up but without hands then cleaning your teeth, cleaning wounds, removing parasites or simply exfoliating are all a bit of a challenge to say the least. This is where the legion of little helpers come in. It's a competiti [...]
