Introduction: Clean and healthy living behaviour can be done anywhere, such as at home, work, health facilities, or in public places. Maintaining a healthy and clean home environment is very important because the home is a place for family members to fulfil each other's needs and build relationships with each other.

The results of the bivariate analysis to see the relationship between housewives' knowledge of PHBS using SPSS obtained a p-value of 0.005 < sig 0.05, meaning that there was a significant relationship between housewives' knowledge of PHBS behaviour, as well as the bivariate test of the relationship between attitudes towards PHBS and obtained a p-value of 0.015 < sig 0.05, which means there is a significant relationship between housewives' attitudes towards PHBS.
