Use Mild soap: Try using a mild soap, like a facial soap, such as Oil of Olay, for delicate mucosal tissues. I would not recommend using lots of soap inside your anus or vagina.

Not inside: Mucous membranes are not meant to be exposed to soap and thus it is usually not a good idea to use soap inside your vagina or anus. If there are unusual odors coming from these areas, then one will need to get checked for abnormal conditions such as infections. Just think how your eyes would feel when soap, even mild ones, got into them.
