Do you use a washcloth in the shower?
Those puffballs from Walmart for 99 cent is the best. They make sooooo much lather
Nope...just a little baking soda and an old corn cob...lol!
I sure didn't, even after numerous comments implying that I stink.
I wonder if anyone changed their vote after reading these comments.
I know I didn't!
Lmao! No wonder you people stink when I'm out and about! Dear goodness, there ought to be a law! Lol. Scrub yourselves people! At least a couple times a week!
If you just stand there the water is not going to pellet the filth off your skin.
Do all of saying that no washcloth is gross, use your hands to wash your hair? What's the difference?
How do you wash your back?
Just think what the loofah is growing the next time you rub it on your body after it has been used - even once, and even on areas that aren't used on your "private bits".
For my private bits, yes. For the rest I use a loofah. I toss it in with a load of whites (bleach) twice a week so it doesn't grow anything funky.
Wash cloths are also so easy to clean! Just throw them in the washing machine. Loofah and sponges can't be washed and collect bacteria and germs. Yuckk
Seriously, this question and subsequent % of answers has really messed up my head.
No other question in the past years on SOH has caused me such thought and reflection.
I thought a washcloth was the norm.
If nothing else, I gotta go buy a loofa and try it now.
washcloths. grew up with em whole family uses em
My "washcloth" is more like a scrubby towel thing. It is rough and scratchy. I love it! I take it with me when I travel. Exfoliation :-)
Loofas ftw! :D
That's the weirdest thing I've heard in a long time.
I grew up using washcloths, my grandparents used washcloths (I know because I inherited all of them). I used washcloths until those net pouffy things came out; now I use a washcloth if I'm just washing my face at the sink. Oh, and I'm white.
Thanks for the tip!
I don't know when I've laughed this hard reading a thread. You guys are hilarious.
That would soak up too much water.
I've never heard of using baking soda instead of soap. Nice tip, I will try this.
One tip, SusanR, you can use it on your face but use very little and barely rub it because it can chafe if you aren't careful. After a while the right amount to use will be intuitive.
Face and body!!
There often IS a film on your skin, TDaddy - those darned "moisturizers" they put in everything. I don't like my skin getting all dried out so I usually use something like that, but honestly sometimes I can't tell when to stop rinsing.
Also, rip the tops off a couple boxes & put one in the freezer and one in the fridge to absorb odors. Good stuff. I haven heard of using it Instead of soap before, but sounds reasonable.
Gtgconfused, yes, it is good for many things: brushing teeth, mouth rinse, shampoo, washing dishes, cleaning smooth surface kitchen ranges, shower stall water spots, lots more.. Check the Arm & Hammer web site or just google baking soda.. Oh yeah, baking too! (;
Most of your body is covered with clothing protecting it from germs. The areas needing the most cleaning would be the pits and bottom. Forearms and face. I start at the cleanest area and end at the dirtiest ... No wash cloth. Soap, friction, and a shower spray.
Nope! I call it a scrubby poofy thing too!
I have this feeling that you're mocking me... :P I couldn't remember the word. xD
We use washcloths and sponges
Wait, you think wash clothes stay wet until laundry day? They dry after a couple hours, I just throw mine down the laundry shoot when I get home from work, and it's always dry from my morning shower.
We use baking soda for a ton of stuff. Including laundry.
Haha I heard this too from my brothers friend. But I'm white and use one.
I'm white and I use a washcloth.
Sea sponge. They make me feel clean haha
Having been using baking soda for so long I actually feel dirty if I'm in a motel shower and have to use soap. I feel like it leaves a film over me. Also, with baking soda I feel clean all over, much cleaner than I ever felt with bar soap or shower gels.
I use my hands and baking soda. People say you'll ruin your skin with baking soda but that's not true if you use a light touch and not much baking soda. I've been using it for 10 years now and save a ton of money on soap. A pound of baking soda is less than 60 cents and lasts several months.
My next door neighbor once told me that white folks don't use washcloths. I guess she's right. I thought that the Dial soap bar is contoured perfectly so that you do not need one.
Who dosent use a rag/washcloth?!?!
That's gross you can't clean yourself with just soap people you have to you know actually scrub.
Jokes aside, I like bath/shower gloves.
Somewhat abrasive surface and they fit like - well, a glove :)
I just use hand to soap unless I did something to get like real dirt on me or feel dirty then I break out the wash cloth but on a day to day basis I don't get near dirty enough to need a cash cloth. Plus when I scrub with it it turns my skin red in that area
I... I had no idea being a washcloth user made me a minority. O.o Mind = blown.
I thought everyone was using washcloths like me.
They have washcloths in hotels! How off could I have been?
I thought I was normal!
If I'm not normal in the shower, what else am I screwed up on?
My life is a lie!
My whole life I've used a loofah. My whole life's been a lie.
