Washing with OESUP is simple, retract the foreskin, creat a sizable lather with the soap, and clean. But there are two things that should be kept in mind while washing.
Firstly, make sure to pay extra close attention to the area underneath the head where the foreskin attaches to the head of the penis. This piece of skin is called the frenulum. Pinching two fingers against both sides of the frenulum and rubbing is an effective way to clean this area.
Second, the foreskin needs to be cleaned as thoroughly as the head. Specifically, the part of the foreskin that folds over the head when not retracted. This area of skin is what actually produces smegma so if it is not cleaned properly an odor will remain. Fully retract your foreskin and wash everything you see thoroughly.
Just washing with the OESUP soap will produce odor eliminating results better than any other soap, but in order to completely remove odor you must also thoroughly dry after each use. There are three different levels of dryness and you should try to get to Level 3 after every use of OESUP.
Level 1 is when the skin is wet.
Level 2 is how the skin feels right after drying with a towel. Not completely dry but not wet. At this level water is trapped in the surface layer of the skin.
Level 3 could be described as bone dry. Most of the exposed parts of your skin like arms and legs are at Level 3 throughout the day. The skin is thoroughly dry and not holding in much moisture except for natural oils. At level 3 there should be no friction when touching the skin. This means that if you rub the skin with your fingers they should slide across very smoothly.
Options for Drying:
The extra step you need to take after using OESUP is to get to Level 3 dryness and there are two ways to do this: air drying or blow drying.
Blow drying is the better option for most people because it is much quicker than air drying. It only takes about 1-2 minutes while air drying typically takes 10 minutes or more. After washing with OESUP use a clean towel to pat yourself dry then use a blow dryer on the lowest power setting with the coldest temperature selected. Keep the blow dryer about a foot away and dry around the entire head of the penis and pay extra attention to the frenulum (the part underneath the head of the penis that connects to the foreskin) and to the foreskin itself. Dry until at Level 3.
Air drying also works well but takes much longer. After washing with OESUP towel dry with a clean towel, retract the foreskin completely, and hold for about 10 minutes to reach level 3. This does have to be done in a dry room however, so a humid bathroom full of steam after a hot shower will not work well.
The skin will return to level 2 soon after drying and this is normal. You only need to reach level 3 temporarily to achieve results.
After using OESUP there a few things that can be done to stay odor free as long as possible.
- Avoid sweating
- Make sure to clean thoroughly after urinating and avoid urinary dribbling
- Clean off any foreign material (especially after sex) as soon as possible and dry as much as possible after washing
- Wear underwear and pants that are made from breathable material
- Keep pubic hair trimmed
OESUP takes full effect after about 3-6 uses and its effects will last for a few days even if a different soap is used (as long as you continue to dry thoroughly every time you wash). OESUP will work if you only want to use it on specific days, but the results are much better when the soap is used consistently.
