This was a discussion on a mommy forum I belong to. It started with several women saying they used mild soap and hot water. Then it was one or two women saying they only used hot water. Then finally someone immature said, “eww! How could you only use hot water!? That’s nasty!” then it turned into a google link battle.
So, without being immature and starting a google link war, how do you clean your lady parts? Just warm water? Mild soap? Douching? Whatever?

I’m interested to see what the other responses are to this..because I just wash them like I do everything else in the shower. Sometimes I pull the shower head down and spray them with a little extra water but nothing too special.

Are we talking inside or just outside? 🙂

@blu77: all of it! Well, not like inside inside. You aren’t supposed to do anything with the inside inside parts! That’s self cleaning.

Mostly hot water and a tiny bit of soap on the upper areas. I stopped soaping up my entire area b/c I was getting weird burning feeling. Vaginas are self cleaning, I clean my thighs really well though. So far no odor with only water!

This is going to be way Too Much Information so brace yourselves:
I wash the outer bits with soap like I do everything else, then I sort of stick my butt out into the shower stream so that everything down there kinda, um, “spreads”, and let the water rinse everything off.
You’re not supposed to wash the pink parts with soap. The only time mine ever get soap on them is when I’m shaving down there and soap inevitably gets everywhere.

@Kant: That’s kind of what I do too.

I normally use this Summer’s Eve feminine wash. I loved the way it smells. They usually have a drugstore brand of it, too. You just reminded me that I should go get some! I haven’t had any in a while, though, so I’ve just been doing soap and water. I wash it like I wash everything else. Normally, I will lather the area up and use my fingers to really clean everything out. I don’t like douching. I do it occasionally, but don’t find that it makes a lasting differnce. Plus, it dries me out, so I really can’t have sex the rest of the day when I do it (well, I can, but it is a lot more work and requires lube).
I don’t know about other women, mainly because I’m embarrassed to bring it up, but I have to work extra hard to keep myself smelling fresh. When I go pee, I have to wipe like twice, then, when I stand up, a little more leaks out. If I don’t wipe again (after I stand up) before pulling up my panties, that little drop of urine will produce a horrible smell in my underwear. Those little Always wipes smell good and they will keep “it” smelling good between showers.

@Kant: thats exactly what I do too!
I have never used anything but water and normal soap or bodywash…I’ve never had any issues

I was def raised that the vagina is self cleansing and it has a special balance of bacteria.
I do not use soaps (specifically on that area) because I am extremely sensitive. Daily warm water suffices for me and I don’t think that I smell and have never had any time of UTI or yeast infection.
I guess its a personal preference along with mental security.

I just wash it with soap and water just like the rest of my body in the shower.

@Pinksapphire: does that stuff really do anything different from normal body wash?

Spread then warm water “inside”.

Soap and water, but not too much soap. I think too much soap can cause irritation and possibly infections? And nothing ‘inside’ but water as soap on the inside can definitely cause infections!

@beekiss & @PitBulLover: HAHA and I thought I was weird for doing it that way! It’s such an odd position to stand in that I always think, “God, I must be the only person to be weird enough to come up with this” haha.
