  • When showering or bathing, wash your vulva with warm water and mild or unscented soap. Make sure the water isn’t too hot and remember to rinse off all the soap.
  • Separate your labia and let the warm soapy water clean all around the clitoral hood and between your labia. This will rinse off any secretions that get stuck in between skin folds.
  • Rinse completely and pat dry your vulva with a soft dry towel.
  • While on your period, change your tampon/pad often.The vagina cleanses itself naturally. The cells in the vagina keep it at a normal pH so you should NEVER douche or use any sprays in your vagina
  • Use mild soap and warm water to clean around the opening to your vagina. Do NOT place soap into your vagina.
