It has been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Ok, we are very flattered and very frustrated. They can imitate, but they just can't duplicate.  The counterfeit cloths, aka knockoffs, range from very bad to horrible.  Sorry, nothing in between.

How To Use The Salux


Q:  How do I use the Salux?
A: (1) This Japanese washcloth is used with soap and water. Wet it and place your choice of soap, bar or liquid, in the center, massage it into a luxurious lather. It can also be used  without soap and water for dry brushing.  No need to rub hard; let the cloth do its work. The authentic Salux cloth is easy to incorporate into your skin care routine.

Washing Your Back


(2) Stretch it across your neck and upper shoulders and shoe shine down your spine, all the way to your tailbone. Now, reach behind and get that often missed spot called the small of your back. Next, drape it over one shoulder diagonally down your back scrubbing again with a back and forth motion.  You now have a clean back devoid of oil, dead skin cells & dirt that can block pores and cause bacne thanks to the authentic Salux cloth.

Washing Your Body


(3) Fold your Japanese washcloth into a loose ball or square wash your body with gentle circular movements.  Make sure you get the back side of your upper arms, continue washing the hips, buttocks and legs. Concluding your shower with an all-over scrubbing of your feet. Wet or dry massage the dry dead skin away. Your feet will thank you.

Q: How do I care for the Salux?

A: Your Salux will rinse very clean with just water after each use. Unlike a washcloth or loofah, they will not harbor mold and bacteria. They can be put in the washer. DO NOT put in the dryer, they dry very fast just hanging.

Q: Can you use on the face?
A: No, they are made for exfoliating the body not the face. Facial tissues are delicate and much different that your body tissue.  Salux in Japan says "Please do not use on the face."

Q: What is the difference between the regular cloth and the Super Hard?

A:  The Super Hard is a thicker weave and is 4" longer. As with both cloths it is the amount of pressure used that determines the hardness. Basically, if you like the regular cloth you will love the supper Hard, It has more of a luxurious feel.

Q: How long do they last?
A: The authentic Salux cloths are durable and will last a long time (that is if you can keep yourself from giving them to family and friends).  Some people use them for years and some replace them every 6 months. You should notice a difference in the texture when you think it needs to be replaced 

 Q: Is there a difference in the texture between the colors?
A: There is no difference in the exfoliation texture in the colors or numbers of our Japanese washcloths. #100  #200 and #300 only refer to the color group. 100 is classics blue, yellow and pink- 200 is white and 300 is the pastel group green. peach and powder blue. All colors and numbers are the same Japanese normal (most popular) texture. 

Q: Can the Salux help control KP- keratosis pilaris?

A:  Yes, using the Salux cloth to gently exfoliate and unclog pores will help manage KP. The Japanese washcloth is a great addition to your skin care routine.

Q: Will the Salux cloth help prevent bacne? 
A:  Yes, bacne forms when pores become clogged. Exfoliating with an authentic Salux will remove dead skin cells, oil and dirt that block pores. Exfoliating your back regularly will control bacne. If your skin is irritated do not scrub too hard at first, or you may increase the irritation.
