Q Which should I use to apply body wash— a washcloth, a loofah, or my hands?
A Your clean hands are safest. Washcloths and loofahs harbour bacteria, which can lead to breakouts and infections, says NYC dermatologist Carin Gribetz. If either is your tool of choice, follow these tips: use a clean washcloth with every use, and disinfect a loofah once a week ( Dr Gribetz’s solution is to soak it in three cups of water and a cap of bleach for 10 minutes), plus replace it every month.
