After trying this for the first time, I absolutely loved it. Every time I use it I like it even more. What attracted me to it is the naturalness of it. I don't know how long it is supposed to last and haven't had it long enough to comment on that, but I can say that it is very exhilarating and refreshing. If you do not like roughness on your skin you probably will not like it, but my skin tingles when I'm finished showering, making me feel very clean and good. I don't ever want to go back to shower puffs. I have already bought two more to stock up so I don't run out. Not sure if I can give them as gifts as some people only like soft materials touching their skin. This does not scrape at all, but it isn't soft either. For me, it is perfect. When finished, I rinse it well, stretch it out, fold it in half, and hang over the shower faucet to dry. It retains no odors and looks just as good as when I bought it. I recommend it.

Love this product
Have bought 6 of these already to give as gifts, I have been using the same one for months now. Works wonderfully just lather up and wash. When I purchased this I also got Nubia Raw shea butter soap with soy milk frankincese & myrrh and I love the way it lathers with the washcloth. I would recommed this to a friend and everyone I have gifted these to also loves them.

This cloth feels wonderful! It scrubs great without being too rough.
I ordered just one...for myself, because no one else in my family wanted one...they said they were fine with the other cloths and the brushes. Well, as soon as it arrived, my sweet daughter could not resist...she tried it out before I had a chance to, and she loved it. I let her keep it and I ordered another one for me. I have the feeling I will be ordering some more too.

I love these cloths! I make and sell lotions, soaps, etc. and do up gift bags. I always include one of these cloths with my Lotion and Soap bag.

This is a wonderful way to remove dead skin cells and lotions from my body during my showers. It leaves me feeling freshened, softer.

This is the best
I love the Ayate washcloth. I have been purchasing these in bulk for 2 years from another website. I use them in my massage business and gift them to my clients. I have clients coming back for more for their family members. This website offers the cloth for half the price of the other website and I think I have switched to Swansons for good! The lower price makes it possible for me to sell the product for much less to my clients that want additional cloths. The cloth is so soft when wet yet provides great exfoliation in a gentle fashion. The cloth is wonderful for scrubbing your feet and continuing up the leg for a great lymphatic effect. You feel so good when you shower with the Ayate washcloth coupled with Dr Bronner's peppermint castile soap. The best of both worlds, soft yet great exfoliation. They last forever. I am still using the one I purchased 2 years ago.

Seems good for gently scrubbing
This is based on one week usage so I cant comment on the product molding or mildew. As the package says, the fibers shrink after first use which was good because it brought the original size from a small hand towel down to approximate 8 x 8 inch cloth. I am a runner, and after doing so,(not sure how to describe it) I feel like my skin emits toxins which leave my skin uneven and in need of a gentle scrub. This product does a good job. Sure I could use the nylon shower balls to do the same thing, but I am trying to remove artificial products as much as possible. I did have a little loofah facial scrub, which ended up with black imbedded in it (assuming mold here). Will now see if this product lives up to its reputation of "no mold"

Better than loofah
My skin feels so soft after using with my shower gels and soaps. I find this cloth beneficial as a facial exfoliant - not too harsh when wet. I would suggest hanging someplace outside of the shower/bath as my first one got a little mildew-y. Other than that, have purchased repeatedly since I love it. Lasts me around 2-3 months with proper care.

Every time I use this cloth, I notice the before and after effects every time I get in an out the shower. The first time I used it, it was a bit rougher, but it softened up a lot afterwards and every time I get out of the shower, it leaves the biggest dirt ring in the tub, no matter if I was out exercising or just loafing around the house, so that's another reason I know it works. I may buy another one for my face. I'm extremely satisfied with it!

The best for less
I just can't bring myself to use other washcloths.

AYATE CLOTH IS THE HANDS DOWN BEST SCRUBBER
This is the best bath scrubber I have ever used. I have been using these ayate clothes for many years and I would not even consider changing to anything else. Ayate clothes are gentle enough to use on your face and scrubby enough to exfoliate well. I have used sponges, natural or artificial and they are too harsh for my skin. Have also used bath "flowers" which are made of artificial plastic of some kind. I would never use those bath flowers again. They are too harsh for my face and don't feel good on my skin. Ayate clothes are the best scrubber on the market today.

This cloth scrubs my skin well, and makes it so I use less of my soaps and other products. My skin feels soft and fresh after I wash. It certainly exfoliates, but it's not too rough. Plus, the price is right!

I have used Lufa products to exfoliate. This is much better than a lufa! I love it and I recommend it to all my friends.
