It is recommended to remove pubic hair on a regular basis. For men, every 40 days. For women, every 20 days. And the recommendation is to use noora over shaving over anything else.

Further more it is recommended to do so from the neck down.

See the farsi site Cleaning of pubic hair for details.

By keeping it short, you will not need to be concerned about the question being made.

However, if choose to not remove pubic hair, you should first remove the najasat completely and then wash it with the water from the bottle twice over. Squeezing would be by simply pressing it on to the skin.
