How to properly clean your vaginal area ?

How to properly clean your vaginal area ?

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.

It's nice to have good hygiene, but know that vaginas are self-cleaning, but vulvas need daily attention. ...Read more
