The best way to keep your vagina and vulva clean is to wash the Labia Majora (outer lips) and the outer portions of the Labia Minora (inner lips) with water alone or a mild cleanser as needed when you’re in the bathtub or shower.

Never put soaps or other cleaners in between the labia minora or up inside your vagina, also known as douching! This can mess with the balance of healthy bacteria inside. Your vagina cleans itself automatically, so just let it do its thing!
