In brief: Douching itself
Douching is not necessary to "clean" the vagina as it is like a "self cleaning oven".
The more you disrupt the normal vaginal fluids that keep the ph(aciditiy/alkalinity) balance constant the more you set yourself up for serious vaginal infections or worse. So, please stop the practice.
