Never. It's been probably ten years. I like my bodywash; either Old Spice or Zest.

Oh, I am very sorry. I never knew that. I only use it very rarely. I will stop using it from now on.

BTW, I usually use Nivea body wash for men. If I am unable to get it, then I settle for axe.

Never.

I clean houses. Ive seen up close and personal what bar soap can do to a shower over time.
I used to have a monthly ex client with a family of 7 and one shower who all used bar soap.
Some of them twice a day. Every month it would take an hour or more to get their shower clean.
An the the next time I would have to start from scratch.

Notice I said ex client. I asked them nicely to quit. Explained about soap scum problem.
No? Okay. Fine.
Then you can spend an hour cleaning a months worth of soap scum out of your only shower.
I didnt actually say this but I did drop them.

I use Yardley bar soap every day.

Default I have some liquid soap

but cannot gauge the amount I need and there always seems to be waste. I like Yardley's lavender soap or Pears in the bar form.

You can make your own soap out of hog lard and left over grease and Red Devil lye.
