I've been reading that a lot of you use coconut oil to help get dirt and grime off. Coconut oil is the best!! I use it for everything, but surprisingly, I haven't tried it pre-bath on Arias. But I'll be trying it out next bath for sure! have any of you tried using those exfoliating gloves when you bathe your fur-less babies? The breeder suggested it to me, and it takes the dirt and grime off so quickly! I also notice that it helps w/ blackheads. Arias doesn't seem to mind using the glove on his body (those of you who have little boys, don't use the gloves on the private bits! but actually, i guess the same goes for little girls too!) I get the gloves at Target but this is what they look like: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Exfoliating-Gloves-exfoliate-exfoliator-polishing/dp/B000660MQU"]Amazon.com: White Exfoliating Gloves Polish Spa exfoliate skin exfoliator Bath @@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21reJRXefvL.@@AMEPARAM@@21reJRXefvL[/ame] I usually wear one glove, so the un-gloved hand can wash the sensitive parts. let me know if any of you try it and like it as much as i do!
