How To Use A Feminine Wash Properly

If you're hoping to use a feminine wash to improve your hygiene, there are some simple steps you can take to get the best results. Picking out a good feminine wash is the first step to using it safely.

Avoid soaps with fragrances or chemicals in them, and instead opt for simple, gentle soaps. 

1. Choosing a Feminine Wash

While it’s not necessary to wash female genitalia using soap because this area is already self-cleansing, many people choose to do it anyway to feel extra clean. If you’re going to use soap, make sure you choose the simplest one possible. Look for white varieties that have the fewest ingredients in them and that don’t contain chemicals.

2. Washing Yourself Safely

It’s easiest to use feminine wash while you’re in the shower. Use a dime-sized amount of soap—since you’re washing such a small area, you barely need any soap at all.

Use a small amount of mild soap with warm water.

  • Avoid using water that’s too hot.
  • Pick a basic, unscented soap.

Use a washcloth or your hand to clean the area with soapy water. 

Create a lather with the soap and warm water either with your hands or using a washcloth. Splash the soapy water around your vulva, or use the washcloth to gently pat the area clean.

  • Avoid using the washcloth to aggressively rub the area or you might cause irritation.

Avoid putting soap or sprays in your vagina. 

Your vagina is self-cleaning, meaning it doesn’t need to be cleansed with any products. Putting soaps or sprays into your body to wash your vagina can actually mess up its natural pH balance and get rid of important healthy bacteria.

  • While douching and other internal cleansers are heavily marketed, avoid using them to keep your body safe and healthy.

Rinse yourself with water thoroughly to get rid of all of the soap. 

Splash clean water around the area several times to ensure all of the soap is rinsed off of your body. Continue using water that’s not too hot to avoid any irritation.

Pat yourself dry with a soft towel. 

Use a clean towel to gently pat yourself dry after getting out of the shower. Avoid rubbing the area to prevent irritation or redness.
