Cleaning The Penis
How To Clean the penis
Pull your foreskin fully back so that you can see the whole the head of the penis and the coronal groove behind it. Wash away all the waste product called smegma from in there using soap and water. Water alone does not do the job properly since smegma is oily. Use a wash cloth to remove stubborn deposits. Rinse off the soap well with clean water. Release your foreskin which may re-cover the glans. When drying yourself, pull back the foreskin again and pat the glans and inner foreskin dry without rubbing it , then replace your foreskin over the glans. Make sure that you wash under the foreskin at least once a day.
