Switch from Bar Soap to Liquid Soap

   By Cathy Green

Are you still using the old fashioned bar soap?  If so, why?  I will get straight to the point and say that you honestly should throw out every bar of soap that you have in your home and the reasons are as follows:

a.  Bar soap collects bacteria and when shared, the bacteria passes from person to person. It’s not hygienic

b.  Bar soap creates a gummy mass which sticks to the soap tray and is difficult to clean

c.  Bar soap is out of style

Bottom line is this. You need to switch over to liquid soap. It is hygienic, easy to managage and does not add to the cleaning time.  It can be stored in pretty bottles to ultimately help decorate your bathroom or any other area where you use it.  You should keep some liquid soap any place where you have a sink, including your kitchen sink.

From the perspective of one who owns a cleaning company, I can tell you that clients who have bars of soap in their homes typically end up paying more to have their homes cleaned than do clients who use liquid soap.  Why, you might ask?  It boils down to time.  For first time cleans, we charge by the hour. Soap scum takes a good deal of time to get off and when bars of soap stick to various soap dishes, it may take two or three sessions to get it fully off…or it may never come off.

Why use bar soap? There actually is no good reason.  Where is your nearest trash can?  Go ahead and dump it!
