Ewww .

Sorry for the reaction, but I was taught that asking such questions to random strangers is outright nasty.

Dial soap (sorry, I love the way it smells!) and my hands. I use an exfoliant cleanser on my face, applied and removed with my hands, in the shower.

I think it's a valid question. Those who wash with just their hands should enlighten us.

If they've said they wash with their hands, then you clearly have your answer. Unless for some weird reason you want to belabour the point. So why is that?


When I saw the thread title, I could tell it was going no place good.

Aveeno Lavendar body wash (or shampoo in a pinch) and just my hands. Once a week I use St. Ives apricot scrub on my body coupled with body wash.

I wash my privates with my hands - oh the humanity! Get a freaking grip people. No offense to anyone that does use wash cloths or sponges (it's a personal preference) but there is nothing wrong with washing your nether regions without these things. Talk about first world problems...

And what kind of soap do you use? Please be specific. Bar of Soap? Body Wash? And which kind? Dove?
I use whatever soap that has moisturizers in it that is on sale.

I had the same reaction. I don't understand how you can get clean using your hands.

I use a loofah at least once a week.

Two separate washcloths - one for privates and one for the rest of me.


As for bodywash - whatever I pickup at Dollar General.
Do you know how soap actually works?

It is a surfactant, which means it literally slides dirt, body oils, etc. off of you.

I work in an especially "dirty" job in the summer, and everything still gets clean with soap. BTW, over exfoliation can lead to a host of skin problems, including increased acne for some and extreme dryness for others. Oh, and fyi, washcloths are usually loaded with bacteria, far more than what are on your hands.

Are washcloths and other body scrubbers bacteria factories? | Go Ask Alice!

Are you really that afraid of your own body?

Did you know that a washcloth is dirtier than your hands?

You are honestly making me puke at this point . Please, I just slurped up Canadian float and want it in my tummy.

BTW, my shower system has an option for cleaning this with water, but dad paid extra money to get it installed.
