    Regular cleaning daily using a wipe. When you bathe, you can douche with a mild solution of bit of vinegar, warm water, and your favorite bubble bath soap.

    Wash the outside of it daily, keep the hair trimmed or shaved, keep it dry, and sleep naked so it can breathe at night.

    I’m really glad Lady Merton said what she said!

    This myth that vaginas need to smell like a garden because of products like Summers Eve makes my blood boil, as someone who has a passion for women’s health. Yes, vaginas shouldn’t be malodorous; that would be indicative of infection or pH. Balance. But they definitely have a unique smell that’s not the MOST pleasant but simply isn’t bad either. That’s a healthy, well balanced vagina.

    A vagina should smell like a vagina- a Musky type of smell

    It is Advertisers that Try to tell females we are to smell "Fresh"- that is Nonsense

    The advertisers just want your Money- Get the Facts 

    It's typical for the vulva to smell a little bit musty, not unlike sweat smells (and all the more if you're someone who does sweat a lot or who find that your overall body scent tends to be strong), or, around the time of your period, even a little bit metallic. If you've been sexually active with your boyfriend, you might have noticed that around his genitals there is likely also a similarly salty or musty scent. 

    Vulvas are a part of your body, and a part that's mighty warm and often doesn't have the kind of air circulation that, say, your face gets.

     They don't smell like pine forests, rose gardens, or air freshener

    : they smell like human bodies do, and like genitals do.

     It's likely that why you didn't notice your scent until you were 13 is that puberty changes our vulvas and reproductive systems, and those chemical and physical changes leave us smelling differently than we did as pre-pubescent children.

    The vagina is a self-cleaning organ. It's also an organ that doesn't tend to respond well to soaps, douches, and other cleansing agents, because those things can knock off the delicate balance which the vagina tries to maintain to stay healthy. This is why we see higher rates of bacterial vaginosis -- a bacterial infection of the vagina caused by imbalance of bad bacteria to the good stuff -- in people who douche. It may well be that if there is a strong or unpleasant scent present, it's due to a possible or borderline bacterial infection or imbalance because of all your compulsive washing. 

    So, the very first thing I'd suggest is that you cool it with the scrub-a-thons. 

    The way to take care of your vagina and vulva when it comes to hygiene is just to wash the external vulva -- your inner and outer labia, your mons, around your clitoral hood, perineum and anus: all the bits you can see on the outside -- very gently, either just with warm water or water and a very gentle,un fragranced soap (certainly not any kind of deodorant or antibacterial soap) no more often than you wash the rest of your body. To wash, you can either just use your fingers or a soft washcloth: you don't want to be rough with the delicate tissue there. You don't want to try and wash inside the vaginal opening at all: leave that be, as it both takes care of itself and needs to be left alone to do that.
