With soap and water.

The foreskin of a baby adheres to the glans, it's nature's way of preventing foreign bodies, urine and feces, bacteria, etc, from building up under a baby's foreskin (which is why it makes no sense for parents to circumcise "because it's easier to keep clean when they're babies"). A lot of parents unfortunately don't know how foreskin works, and forcibly retract it before it naturally loses the adhesion.

There really isnt anything to clean...just wipe the same as you would with a circ'ed boy (as when wearing diapers they get dirty too ) Otherwise, yes, you give them baths and let soak a bit, same as for any baby.

There's no real space/opening between the penis/foreskin to speak of, so fecal matter doesn't end up there. You wipe the penis off just like you would if the baby were circumcised.

ETA, they were way faster typers

Noo... I've never met a man with a UTI. It's very uncommon. Very uncommon indeed.

What is urinary tract infection?

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is defined as the presence of multiplying micro-organisms (bugs) in the tract through which urine flows from the kidneys via the bladder to the outside world.
UTI is 50 times more common in women, with about 5 per cent per year developing symptoms.
UTI is uncommon in men below 60 years of age, but the frequency is similar in men and women in older age groups.
http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/menshealt...yinfection.htm

No mention of foreskins I'd see it as a valid argument for carrying out circumcisions if it actually had a factual basis, but it reeeeeeally doesn't.

It is tradition, plain and simple. Especially when you consider the chance of getting a UTI in early life for boys is like... 1%.
