    Okay, so this is a little bit gross, but you know those shamefully satisfying TikToks where people remove their dead skin in icky-but-gratifying rolls? Well, I knew I had to buy the product behind the manky magic – enter these genius washcloths!

I couldn't get over how easy it was to install, and I *still* feel like I'm in someone else's much fancier bathroom whenever I use it.
