Women are too hung up on their genital odor. They spend thousands a year trying to mask what nature bestowed on them. The female secretions have an odor because they are meant to! They contain pharemones that are attractive the the male species. Most men detest the smell of feminine hygiene products and prefer clean and natural. Imagine being the poor guy wanting to pleasure his partner orally and getting a taste of FDS power?!
Shower daily. Wipe from front to back. Wash the genitals with mild soap and water twice a day and that's all you need to do.
Well that's true that the natural smell of a woman can be a good thing. But there are a number of women out there who could benefit from some scent control. Not to be gross but have you ever gone to a public bathroom after a woman with strong feminine order has just been there? YUCK!
And what surrealmeal was talking about is not masking the sent but deodorizing and cleaning. And backing soda once it's mixed with warm water is not that harsh.
I agree with you that staying clean is all you really need. But some women have stronger scents, or need more deodorant down there then others. I say as long as it does not cause any irritation that there isn't any problem with it. It's not like she's covering up bad hygiene with perfume or taking a brillow pad to it.
