But as the fibers were stiff and harsh, they are not normally used now-a-days, but are replaced by fibers that softens when soaked in water.
Facial Cloth is the most popular tool used as face cleanser. After you get them wet, they lather, as soap and moisturizer are embedded in these facial cloths. It is not necessary that all facial cloth have a lathery soap but work more like a moist towel.
Cleansing Pouch is another type of face cleanser which is variation of facial cloth. These pouches have holes of various diameters and are made of two open weave lothes. In between the clothes, cleanser is fixed and how much of the cleanser gets to the skin depends upon the size of the holes.
