Got your back
As a pregnant woman, scrubbing my back has become really difficult. I really wish I had made this sooner because I'm pretty sure my back has turned green just because it's so difficult to reach around and wash it now. You could use an actual wash cloth for this but there seemed to be something very sensual and pampering about using a chunky cotton knit fabric instead.
