1. Washing It

Before you say anything, we aren’t saying you should never clean it under the hood. What we are saying is, cleaning there is not like cleaning your armpits or your back — scrubbing and lathering with soap. Scrubbing it is out of the question as it can make the area very raw and uncomfortable. Using soap can also lead to irritation in case you are sensitive down there.


Instead, a splash of water is enough, and if you must use a cleaning solution, go for an unscented, hypoallergenic one, and just apply it using your hands, avoid using a washcloth or a loofah.
