I agree that she needs to establish better hygiene habits!!
I would start by connecting something she wants ( some type reward) could be allowed more game time or trip or privaledge within reason (no bath or shower then NO TO BEING ALLOWED TO GO TO POOL FOR EXAMPLE)
Personal hygiene is essential to her long term success and acceptance in the real world!!
So I would connect positive reinforcment to her improving her behavior with regard to bathing or showering ...
Failure to observe reasonable habits should be met with unpleasant consequences ...
Show her out discussion if that may in your opinion be helpful...
I agree that this behavior is in need of positive change!
