Saturate your Cactus Cloth with warm water then squeeze out the excess. The cactus fibers will actually expand as the cloth softens and shrinks. Next, pour a small amount of Bioelements Comfortably Clean Daily Showering Gel onto the wet cloth and gently massage over your body concentrating on dry, flaky areas where skin is thickest (soles of feet, knees, elbows). Avoid delicate or sensitive areas. Use your Cactus Cloth once a week to sweep away dry flakes and smooth skin. Rinse out after each use and hang to dry.
