We all take showers and use either a wash cloth or a loofah. Right? We love having an extra scrub and to get all of the dirtiness off from the day. I am hear to tell you, taking a shower can either make me sleepy or wake me up depending on my mood. But one thing for sure, I love my loofah and do not know what I would do without it. I have been using loofahs for as long as I could remember. I basically used one as a baby and we have been inseperatable ever since. I wanted to write to you guys about my research on loofahs since I love them so much. I know you guys are wondering what could be so interesting about loofahs. But, what I found out I HAD TO TELL THE WORLD.
Loofahs can actually be a bad thing for you in some cases...
But... I am here to tell you that you can use loofahs as long as you:
1. Let it dry completely. Leave the bathroom open so that mositure won't cause bacteria.
2. Replace the loofah every four weeks.
3. Regularly hang the loofah outside the hot moist shower itself, on a daily basis and then occasionally microwave it for 20 seconds while damp, as they recommend for synthetic sponges.
4. You should use 5% beach to clean it.
I think we all should be thinking about whether to use a cotton washcloth, always replacing loofahs or using our hands. I recently read as well that using your hands is actually the best way to go because its not as harsh on the skin and people usually overly clean or scrub their skin when its not needed. I already change my loofah every 30 days but now I am wondering if that is even enough. I am deciding what would be the best route. What is your loofah cleaning routine?
