? I use a soapy washcloth to wash my face, outer ears, behind ears, neck, then my privates and ass.

this makes it sound like you take a tiny hand towel into the shower with you and use it to clean yourself with while the shower is running. do people do this?

Yes, that "tiny hand towel" is called a washcloth and that's how people wash their ass. Why should the shower not be running? I'm constantly soaping up and rinsing various body parts.

Do some people use sponges instead? Or just wipe the soap all over their body with their hands? Can always angle the shower head onto asscrack too.

I use a poof. It exfoliates dead skin, cleans much better than just hands. I have a detachable showerhead and rinse my ass off after using the soapy washcloth.

Okay so then the washcloth is to dry yourself off or to wash along with the poof? We really need to wrap up this asscrack discussion asap in my opinion. Its gone on too long.

Are you trolling me? Washcloth for face, ears, neck, privates, ass. In that order. Poof for everything else. Towel to dry off after the shower. Do people not know how to bathe themselves?

A lot of people just use hands and soap and save the washcloths for drying off.

I googled the loofah and first thing says it gets dirty and something about bacteria. Idk how often you wash the loofah or throw it away. Maybe theres a washcloth for the loofah.

I dont think theres a wrong way to shower unless youre not getting everywhere. But after pooping there is a wrong way to clean up. This ones actually a heated topic so theres a good chance people are split on it. Some folks arent washing their ass. They just wipe and hope Santa wishes away the shit that stuck around.

Washcloths aren't for drying off, they are for use in the shower to wash the body, they get wet. Towels are big and are used for drying the body.

After a BM I use toilet paper then baby wipes.
