I'm not quite sure if you're aware, but the puff that is hanging in the shower is what I have been using to cleanse my body when I shower. This has only been the case for the last decade, so I can understand the confusion. It is not to be used to scrub the shower fixtures, wipe down the mucky tile or scrape soap scum from the door. We have sponges for that specific purpose in this house but you may have to actually open up a cabinet or check under the sink to locate them. While they are not as convenient as my shower puff that hangs at eye level, they really do serve a purpose and do a much better job of cleaning. I apologize for not bringing this to your attention earlier. However, I think we may have solved the mystery of that weird skin rash I've been getting from time to time.
