I've been having a huge problem lately. I change my clothes for every salat, take 1 or 2 showers a day, and spend 20 minutes in the washroom cleaning myself. I feel that I have to be extremely clean for salat, EXTREMELY! I have to do the laundry 3 times a week. I am almost 13 years old. I know I am not doing good at all, but I'd just like to know how clean you really have to ve for salat? What should I do?

Beware beware brother. This is one of the common tricks of the shaitan with which he tries to cause distress to the believing men and women.

Allah says: "Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship" (2:185)

While cleanliness and wudu is important, we must be careful not to go to extremes with it.

By the way I am very very happy to hear that Allah has enabled you to pray your salah. May Allah protect you from never ever missing a single prayer of the 5 obligatory prayers, brother in Islam.
