Use both body wash and Dial bar soap. Depends on my mood at the time!

I used to use body wash and liquid soap all the time but last Christmas someone gave me a bar of hand made all natural soap that her daughter makes and now it is the only thing I use.

Olay makes a nice smelling bar soap that I've taken to using lately. I think it's better for the septic system, too.

Body wash makes me break out, it doesn't matter what brand or type. Bar soap is all I can use. Dr Bonner's Almond scented works great. I have oily skin, so it doesn't dry me out and it isn't overly scented. It's $4.50 a bar, but it's a once a month purchase.

I rarely use bar soap for a shower. Most of the time, i use shower gel when taking a shower.

Hey fellas, quick question. I was just wondering if its OK to use bar soap while washing my hands. We ran out of hand sanitizer and need to keep our hands clean. Is bar soap a good substitute for 1 day.

Are you serious?

Bar soap is a surfactant, it is far better at cleaning hands than hand sanitizer. Look at surgeons, they typically use a anti microbial bar soap, and never just a hand sanitizer.
