Its a nice and simplest way to write about Aloe vera but mam you said to wash the aloe which as per my experience is not true because if you wash the aloe gel after scooping, its mucilagenous part which has therapeutic value will gets washed away.MOreover ALOE gel is well protected by by thin layer over it hence it is free of impurities and you can directly the juice or gel without washing. I hope you will not take my comments in a negative way. I hope you will recognize me.
