Forms and Methods of Purification

I've been thinking a lot about the concept of purification lately and I thought I'd pick some brains. I think we all know about the use of water or herbs, but what else do you use for purification? Is purification something that your path practices or requires?

Also, is there a differentiation in your purification practices between purifying the body and the spirit/soul? Do you use different methods to purify a ritual area than you would for a person? Or a ritual object? Why?

I've also been thinking about the concept of confession in Catholicism- I'm not sure if Catholics would agree, but it seems to me to be a form of verbal purification; by confessing ones sins and repenting them, the sinner cleanses the soul, correct? Would you disagree with this thought? Is verbal purification something you've practiced or considered?
