The people that I used to nanny for only used white sheets and I loved them. I still haven't convinced hubby to get those yet, but I'm trying. Maybe I'll just go out and buy some and not tell him. LOL

Don't take this the wrong way, but can I call you Mrs. Clean? IIRC, you're very very picky about how clean the rest of your home is, too. Not that this is bad, I just don't know how you keep up!
If I can keep the kitchen and bathrooms spotless I'm generally satisfied.

Does makeup (foundation) bleach out of white wash clothes well? I've had problems with it staining them, so usually use beige ones to wash my makeup off.

Mine have always come clean. Occasionally I will wear makeup and then take a hot shower that night and forget to wash my face. The now wet makeup will wipe off on my towel. I have never had a problem with it coming off.

I rinse mine out real good after I use it, and I make sure it doesn't sit in the tub where it'll stay wet afterwards. It also goes in the wash at the end of the week along with everything else.

I actually have 3 of them that I rotate, and I've never had one get funky-looking and/or smelling.

Nope, I just use my hands and soap. And I also have a poof thing that I use.

Im not Hazel like Susan (Rosiemac) but I do like things clean, but I wouldnt say my home is spotless, but with 6 animals and a guy living here, I do try my best to keep it clean.

Yes foundation comes out of wash cloths. I do rinse them first, though.

Just soap, no washcloth, and sometimes a face scrub and/or body scrub.

I use a pouf too, only use a washcloth on my face every morning.

I use a poof in the shower. I can't use washcloths anymore, it just feels weird. If I forget to pack my poof, I just use my hands.

well, i don't take showers, i take baths. i use a washcloth to wipe my face after washing my hair [1st thing i wash] to keep water out of my eyes. i also use one to wash my face. for everything else, i use one of those nylon net sponges - they exfoliate better.

Hands do just fine. I use a sensitive soap for my face, and a bodywash for the rest of me. If i want to exfoliate i have a long handled natural loofah. I find those plastic fluffy ones don't do the job as well for me.

Wash cloth and pouf. Bath & Bodyworks used to advertise that the poufs they sell don't collect bacteria??? I don't know...that doesn't sound right, does it?

Am I the only one who uses those shower gloves? They're very textury and stretchy, they go through the wash just fine, and although they're nowhere near as rough as a washcloth, they do a great job of exfoliation.

I don't use them on my face, though -- just my wonderful, lifesaving Burt's Bees Soapbark & Chamomile cleansing cream, and then a washcloth just in order to rinse really well... no scrubbing.

I prefer the long-handled brush thing, and since I prefer body wash (a little bit goes a FAR lot longer than soap, in which the lather runs out after just one arm), it works great for me. Feels to me that the bristles work a lot better than one's hand or washcloth in dislodging dead skin cells. And heck, a washcloth, poof, or a hand just can't reach all the hard-to-reach places on your back. And the scrubby brush feels sooooo good on your back. However, I have decided that using soap makes the skin feel like all the crud was removed properly. Or maybe it's leaving behind a scum that makes the skin feel a little drier or tighter, which could be mistaken as a clean feeling.

I use a washcloth on myself and the poofy things to scrub the shower and washbowl.
