    Bar of soap

    No real reason other than me doing so for years

    None I don't use soap.

    Liquid Soap- Much easier, and doesn't slip out of my hands

    Liquid Snake or Solid Snake?

    Bar

    Bodywash doesn't make you feel as clean as a decent bar of soap.

    Definitely liquid. I don't like the idea of "transfer."

    I use liquid soap, I've never liked the bars as they are too slippery.

    Solid. We have some liquid in the downstairs bathroom but it leaves my hands really dry, and we've been through many brands over the years.
    I loves me some coal tar soap.

    I use both. I really like bar soap for the shower, but use liquid soap for the sink. All would be bar, but liquid is neater at the sink.

    Mark another one down for both. Liquid soap at the sinks, and bars of soap in the shower. Just always been the way I've done it...

    Same. I like liquid soap in the sink because I find it easier to use with really dirty hands and it makes more suds more easily, but a bar of soap in the shower works for me. I tried body wash but went through it quickly and it left my skin feeling tight and dry...a bar of soap lasts for a long time and is dirt cheap comparatively.

    Liquid in sing, bar in shower although use body wash sometimes. I'm thinking I should use liquid in the shower so it goes down the drain easily, like my pee. :D

    I prefer liquid when washing my hands. When in the shower, I use shampoo soaked (? right word) in a wash cloth. :rolleyes:

    Hi,
    I prefer a bar of soap to get me feeling clean but it does leave my skin a bit dry so I usually finish off with some moisturising body wash to leave me feeling soft and smelling nice. :)

    My favourite bar soap is Palmolive as it smells really nice and I usually use Lynx shower gel or pinch some of my wife's Dove shower gel.

    Craig.

    The one thing I noticed with liquid soap, or body wash as some are sold as is that they are more expensive then regular bar soap and they do not last as long as soap.

    My gym was giving away samples of body wash and I used some. What I noticed is that I had to squeeze a good size goop onto my hands and even then, a lot of the stuff ran down the drain.

    I'll stick with bar soap, because "body wash" is a scam to spend more for less.
