What Do You Use When Bathing?

What Do You Use When Bathing?

Wicked Wahine Wicked Wahine
My previous discussion was, What Body Part Do You Wash First? Some people mentioned using a washcloth & I realized I had completely forgotten to address this! I do not use a washcloth; I just use my hands because washcloths were always too irritating for me when younger, so I never got in the habit. (When I need to exfoliate, I use a modern, stainless steel, strigil, sometimes with oil.)

I remember reading an article that Europeans favor using their hands, but North American's with their Puritan roots, started using a cloth when bathing as a barrier between the hands & body. This is supposedly the reason when first trying to market shower gels to North America they didn't become accepted until they were offered with a bath poof.

Regardless of all that, what do you use to bathe with?

I just use my hands - I have very sensitive skin.

I use a loofah. I can't remember the last time I used a wash cloth or just my hands.

I have KP, so I am often using Japanese nylon cloth from Daiso to exfoliate. But for daily showers I use nothing.

I just use my hands. I'm pretty sure my skin is too sensitive to tolerate much else.

A poof every time and a loofah about twice a week.

Loofah, it really removes excess skin and cleanses well.

I use a poof or loofah and I start with my face first with a wash cloth.

We have an oversized washcloth and a loofah in the shower. I use either one. I usually use the washcloth if I'm really dirty, like from working in the yard, because it's more abrasive. When I'm in a hurry, I just use my hands.

I love the exfoliating gloves, but haven't had them in years. I dispose of them, but think they're great. I just use a wash cloth & a pumice rock on my feet. I have been wanting one of those handled back loofah things. Lol. I nearly break my arm trying to scrub my back.

I prefer the mesh poofs and my 2nd choice is a washcloth. Living up to my North American upbringing I guess!

I exfoliate my underarms and feet with a poof or textured washcloth. My skin is very dry and sensitve and I have a tendency to scrub too hard with anything other than my hands anywear else.
I like those nylon Japanese clothes though...they're great for stretching over my shoulders and back. Loofas creep me out, they smell bad even brand new.
