I heard that liquid is cleaner and doesnt dirty the tiles in the shower as much, so I changed years ago.
I recently found some olive oil soap that I had used for felting, and I have been using this lately.
However once this is finished I will use only liquid as have dispensers for this built into the shower as well as hand washing dispensers.
Yes liquid definitely more hygienic in the toilet area. People lather up all the germs with the bar of soap, put it back onto the vanity side or container, then rinse the germs and suds off their hands and leave the germs drying onto the soap bar for the next person to lather up with.
It doesn't really bother me either way, but I prefer liquid soap in the kitchen and bar in the bathroom/shower. As long as the soap is cruelty-free, that's all that matters to me. I use Velvet Sorbolene soap bars in the bathroom and BX Earth liquid soap in the kitchen. Both are available at Coles.
I haven't heard this before, but I've been using liquid soap for as long as I can remember. I think it's more hygienic than having the soap sit there all day accumulating everything's that happening in the same toilet on its surface.
Yes I've heard the same claim and generally found it to be true (i.e. that liquid leaves less scum etc). I use whatever and wherever, but my preference would be bar in the shower and liquid/gel elsewhere.
liquid, creates less scum, halving your bathroom cleaning time and is less difficult to manage than squiggy bars of soap. You can also refill dispensers if you find your fave health shop or bulk supplier.......
I use liquid soap in the shower and kitchen and in the bathroom I have both for hand washing. The only reason I have bars of soap is that they are all presents which I am trying to use up so that I can get to use the liquid variety.
In Kitchen, always have used 'Sunlight' soap bar, & now also, Dettol Medicated Liquid.
In Bathroom, soap 'remnants' from Shower, & in Shower, a variety, eg Pears', Country Life, Cashmere Bouquet etc etc etc!
Have Medicated Liquid Soap at Washbasin, as well.
In Laundry, now, just medicated liquid soap. I my original house, at laundry tub, had both Sunlight & Solvol Soap bars, as it was downstairs, so came in from Garden or Car Maintainence, so needed those soaps there. Toilet & shower downstairs, had their own soap bars'.
I have been using liquid soap in the bathroom for the last thirty years since the birth of my first child. It was great. No scum. No more hard scrubbing. Now I have a second husband who is now a paraplegic and he only likes to use soap, so now I have a huge scummy bathroom to scrub. Oh well, it is helping my muscle tone.
It is true. Liquid soap is the winner in shower and on the basins and spa. When I turn the shower off, I wipe dry the tap handles and shower head and use a rubber blade wiper on the tiles and glass screen before stepping out to dry myself. It certainly does require far less maintenance than using bars of soap.
Handwashing - We use the foaming liquid ones and buy refill bottles from Aldi. Very economical. I have found much less mess and easier clean up with the liquid soap.
Shower - We have shower gels mostly but other half did buy me 24 bars of goat milk soap a while back. He keeps a bar of Solvol in the main bathroom and it is the pits . . . oh, the mess. It should be in the laundry but it must have legs because it keeps getting back to the bathroom (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
Sorry meant to add - my late husband was like yours - he always used Wright's Coal Tar soap. The smell was awful but he loved it. He also used the Coal Tar shampoo so the bathroom smelt unbelievable at times.
I use liquid hand soap in the kitchen, bathrooms and the laundry. I use Victoria's Secret "Amber Romance" or Tabu shower/shampoo gel as I love the perfume they leave on my body, hair and in the bathroom.
