A patent has been issued for a skincleansing method that uses cleanser, water and a skin cleansing aid knitted from a yarn. The skin cleansing aid has a number of acrylic fibers that use a garter stitch to form a number of parallel ridges. Each ridge has a plurality of outwardly facing yarn loops and a number of generally parallel voids. Each void is between two of the generally parallel ridges, and each extends from a first cleansing aid edge to a second cleansing aid edge. The edges are use for applying a cleanser and water to the skin cleaning aid to at least partially fill the number of parallel voids in the skin cleansing aid with a lather formed by the cleanser and water. One must rub an area of skin to be cleansed with the skin cleaning aid to apply the lather from the plurality of voids to the area of skin. This is meant for scraping lather and dead skin cells from the area of skin. It is also ideal for carrying dead skin cells and lather away from the surface of the area of skin that is being cleansed and into the plurality of voids. Another use is for applying additional lather to the area of skin that is being cleansed following the scraping of lather and dead skin cells from the surface by at least some of the plurality of acrylic fibers. The last step is rinsing lather and dead skin cells from the area of skin to be cleansed and rinsing lather and dead skin cells from voids in the skin cleaning aid.
