Yuck. I really loved this new cleansing routine, except that I didn't have enough washcloths to last between laundry days. I could never find new ones I liked--I tried different terrycloths, bamboo, organic cotton flannel, muslin, microfiber, you name it. They were all gross, clumsy, scratchy  squares.
