Scrubbing the middle of your back

It seems I can never quite get enough scrubbing power to exfoliate the upper middle portion of my back. I have purchased a number of "back scrubbing devices" but I can never seem to make them work well enough.

Since I live alone and have no love life, am I doomed to forever be in need of exfoliation?

I was thinking maybe installing something like a cat scratching post on the shower wall that would allow me to rub my back up against it like a bear scatches his back on a tree. Maybe I will make millions of .

Don't tell me to go to a spa, I'm not into that kind of thing.

Anyone else have a solution?

Stand in line, guys

(I've seen a loofa attached to a 'handled' thin towel--almost rope-like, but still a terry cloth)

That actually sounds like a good idea.

I have a fairly long scrub towel that I pullback and forth across my back, one end in each hand. Probably similar to the use of what rewebster discribed.

I suggest working on flexibility:

I've tried all of the different scrubbers, I can't get enough pressure going for them to be effective.

The very best thing, though, without a doubt, is a shower mate.

"something like a cat scratching post on the shower wall "

have one installed and see if it works

Best suggestion so far may be Danger's

How would that keep you from needing exfoliation???

Because a significant other could scrub my back and wouldn't go "eeeewww, are you kidding?"

LOL, I've got an idea! Attach a large brush like you'd use to wash a car, or the type you use on horses, to your shower at mid back height.

A large piece of the scratchy side of velcro stuck to the shower wall?

I never bother touching my back since I can't imagine it getting that dirty.

Better add a no-slip cover to the shower floor.
