Washcloths - Useful or Trash?



Washcloths...take them or leave them...
I had the most interesting conversation with a friend the other day. I wanted to share it with you, and give you something to think about. Who uses a washcloth? I have chatted about washcloth use with other friends, and just have some interesting thoughts. Okay, I don't think we really used a washcloth growing up - you just put the soap on your body with your hand. I now use a washcloth for my face, only. So, I don't know if you think this is strange or not. But, let me tell you something that will crack you up. I was talking to a very smart friend the other day about this washcloth issue. She told me she uses a washcloth for her body and for her face...I thought for a minute and said, "Uh, you use the same washcloth on your body that you use for cleaning your face?" And then, here comes the wisdom...she said... "Yes, THE SIDE THE TAG IS ON I USE FOR MY BODY AND THE SIDE WITH NO TAG I USE FOR MY FACE." Dude, that is crazy smart. I thought that was like the most clever thing ever. Who thinks to do that? I never have. I promised I would not use her name because she thought that would be embarrassing to share on here - but let me tell you, I think it's awesome! She is obviously a smart cookie.
Also, let me just share this about bar soap while we are on the subject of washing and washcloths. Even if I use some kind of body wash, I have to use bar soap first. So, basically, I wash twice - always have, always will. I love Dial bar soap (but not the spring water kind - because that's the kind we had in Louisiana when the hurricane came and it brings back bad memories). But, we've been shopping for soap at Costco, and Landon wants us to buy the bar soap in bulk there. They don't have Dial. We have been buying Irish Spring, which is okay, but not the greatest. I just need Dial. At my work, some of my friends have Sam's cards, so guess what? I bought Dial there the other day!!! And, not the spring water kind - the classic gold kind. I love how Dial smells. I can remember my dad always smelling like Dial at night and me sitting on his lap before I went to bed. Dial is just home-y to me. I also have been using this new Caress body wash stuff...I love it! Usually, I don't consistently use a body wash, but I have been using this stuff for a while, and it is awesome!! You should definitely try it - it has made my skin really soft...

  1. I have views about washcloths that I just cannot put on here, but I am a big fan of bar soap!
