Clean at last! Clean at last! Thank God almighty, I am clean at last!

Asian Nylon Wash Cloth 

My mom introduced me to these washcloths over a decade ago when I still lived in Hawaii, and I used them ever since… until we moved to Colorado.  There’s no Longs Drugs here to buy them at, and the asian markets don’t have them either, so I finally decided to hunt them down on the Internet and… guess what?  I ended up buying a 10 pack from a distributor in Hawaii!  How funny is that!

I’m going to make a bold statement here:  if you are using anyting other than these specific washcloths, you are probably not as clean as you could be.  Cotton wash cloths, sponges, and those nylon poofs from those specialty bath stores are not abrasive enough, and they don’t always do a good job of holding the lather.

So what makes these so special?  They hold a LOT of lather, and as we all know, it’s the lather that does the cleaning, not the soap; i.e. smearing a bar of soap on your hand and rinsing it off is less effective than lathering it up really well.  Also, they are ABRASIVE.  I warn you, if you want to try these for the first time, be prepared: you will feel like you are rubbing sand paper across your body.  I had to get used to it again after not having used them for 2 years.

But after you finish your first shower with them, you WILL be able to tell the difference.  Your skin will feel softer and smoother, and you will feel cleaner.  It’s kind of like using a Sonicare toothbrush for the fist time and noticing how smooth and clean your teeth feel compared to a regular toothbrush.

Man, that’s two plugs in one post!

    OMG…that is too funny! I use the same washcloth and I can’t live without it. I never take a trip without it either. I actually forgot to pack it on one of my trips and I felt dirty all weekend. = ) Just let me know when you run out and I can send some over.

    Oh…and Lana is such a cutie! Too bad you guys live so far. Have any plans to visit LA? If so, I would love to meet your little one and you too Peter! = )

    Hi Shirley! It’s good to meet another CLEAN person! I’ll email you with some details on our next trip to LA… By the way, the place I order it from is actually cheaper than it was buying it in the stores (about a little under 3 bucks each)!
