Hmmm....: Usually, cleaning of a vagina is not needed. The outside is the vulva and can be gently washed during baths and showers. The inside is the vagina. Vaginas are not meant to be washed. That means washing vaginas is not natural, and can mess up the inner, balanced conditions of a vagina. It's nice to have good hygiene, but know that vaginas are self-cleaning, but vulvas need daily attention.
