You may be confused by the feminine hygiene products that claim to keep your vagina smelling like “springtime.” Caring for your vulva and vagina is actually very simple because you don’t need to buy fancy soaps or liquids. In fact, these products can be very irritating and can cause vaginitis.
Recommended mild soaps include Cetaphil®, Basis®, Aveeno®, or Neutrogena®. Do not scrub vulvar skin with a washcloth. Wash with the hand or with running water and pat dry.
