No, seriously, be meta-clean

Your purification* is the purification of Horus, your purification is the purification of Seth, your purification is the purification of Thoth, your purification is the purification of Dwn-‘nwy, your purification is the purification of your double, your purification is the purification of your purification, and this purification of yours also is among your brethren the gods.

The Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts, trans. R. O. Faulkner, Utterance 36 (partial)

* translator notes that “censing” is also acceptable as a translation as the associated offering is a pellet of incense
