I'm sort of disappointed in poofs.
I've gone my whole life using bar soap. Rarely have I employed the scrubbing power of a rag. Only when I have been super grimy. Which is rare. Because I avoid grime at all costs.
But I've always been somewhat fascinated by the shower poof, and the idea that one would use that in lieu of a bar of soap. First, am I getting comparable cleaning power from a tiny bit of liquid soap, worked into an almost endless supply of lather? Or does rubbing the actual bar of soap on my body act as a far superior cleaning mechanism? Is there sufficient germ/odor killing power in the lather?
I always hate it when I am visiting someone's house, and all they have is body wash and a poof. I guess I feel less violated sharing a bar of soap, than using a hunk of cloth that has been rubbed who knows where, and has consequentially stored who knows what bodily filth. So I always end up using half of the host's bottle of body wash, since I can't use their poof. It's like washing oneself with pump hand soap. Ridiculous.
I was at Andre's house in Reno, and they had this Dove body wash. Really, the only time I have ever not been pissed about having to hand wash myself with body wash; it smelled really really great. So I decided to give up the bar, and go with the poof and the Dove body wash.
I'll have to say that overall, I am disappointed. Washing my armpits with lather from a poof, rather than with the actual bar of soap itself feels rather sub par. I don't become as slippery. I like feeling slippery, and then not. I feel like if I become slippery, and then rinse the slipperyness away, the ensuing post slippery feeling indicates cleanliness. Lather just isn't as slippery.
What the hell am I even writing about.
