I had questions on Monastic hygiene in Theravada:

1) Do monks/nuns brush their teeth and put on deodorant etc

2) If monks/nuns are only allowed to bathe every 2 weeks, how do they deal with the health concerns, or are there none?

3) Do monks/nuns wear the same robes for long periods of time and if so, are there any health concerns to doing such a thing?
