I usually just use a bar of soap/body wash and my hands xD I find using a wash cloth every day dries my skin out. Every once in a while I will use a scrubbing brush to exfoliate.
I recently got in a debate with my friend over whether it was better to use a wash cloth or not (3 AM conversation lol). All I'm saying is I smell a lot better than he does lmao xF

None of the above. A watering can so I can water the garden at the same time. Bit chilly in winter. :-81

I make my own loofahs. You can buy a whole yard of illusion netting for less than $1, and that's enough to make 4 or 5 normal loofahs, or 2 loofahs with handles (if you aren't as good at reaching yr back).
I mean... since these homemade loofahs literally end up costing less than a quarter apiece (and take less than 2 minutes to make), I just toss 'em as soon as they start to accumulate the slightest smell.
But, if you reallyreallyREALLY wanted to sanitize them, you could just soak them in a bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach per 1 gallon of water) for 10-15 minutes, and then either put them through the dishwasher (if you have one) or else just wash them with yr white laundry.
You can sanitize sponges, too, although that generally requires puttting them in the microwave after you bleach them. Would I want to use my microwave for food after that? ehhhhh...
In my experience... Not only are wash cloths inferior to loofahs in terms of actual cleansing, but you also have to use WAY more shower gel to get the same cleaning effect. So, wash cloths are also more wasteful of resources overall.1
