The Old Fashioned Kinda Soap

A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, bar soap ruled the personal care cleaning industry. Sadly, liquid soap took over and bar soap was shoved to the back of the storage cupboard. Then antibacterial foam soap ruled in the land. But – I believe it’s time for bar soap to make a come-back. My tots were having a hard time squirting the soap… and hence, were avoiding it all together. Ick!

So our new experiment is trying bar soap. The funny thing is that I had to teach the tots how to use it. Wet hands… rub on soap… lather… scrub… rinse… done. Ok, really, they just needed to know to wet hands. I showed Max the new AWESOME soap bar and he asked me to open it. He must have viewed the bar of soap as a box. Too funny!

I totally talked up the new amazing awesome soap so my kids would actually use it. I kept thinking I was so hilarious by saying how it was the old fashioned kind of soap. Hannah kept saying, “Oh, Mom!” and slightly rolling her eyes at my silliness.

I guess we’ll see how our experiment lasts. Will it scum up the sinks? I know not. I’m loving it already because I know it’s cheaper. Plus, the smell of Lever 2000 stays with your hands forever… or at least for 10 minutes. Which means my kids smell much cleaner. Hallelujah!

I can’t remember the last time I used bar soap, but I’m glad to see it’s found a place in our home. Welcome Lever. I’m excited to try the new Fresh Mandarin Orange and Grapefruit scent.

So – what kind of soap do you use? Bar soap? Liquid soap? Foam Soap?

    We use both liquid (in a pump is handy…) and bar soap. The Dial bars with glycerin are nice, but we haven’t looked beyond that brand for ages. That mandarin/grapefruit sounds nice!

    We mostly use bars. We used to have liquid for washing hands but my kids would pump 3 times per wash and waste it all, so no more liquid for kids.
