    Use bar soap instead of liquid to save money and packaging waste. To salvage those little scraps that are so difficult to use get a netted soap saver. This will allow you to practically make a whole new bar of soap, without the waste

    I use liquid soap. A long time ago I bought a few of the foaming pump bottles and found that I could refill with the soap I already have at home with just adding water to it.

    I do keep a bar soap in the shower and hadn't seen the netted soap savers. I did try crocheting one last week but that didn't work out so great.

    I use both for different reasons.

    I think that bar soap is more economical, and I do turn the scraps into liquid, but in the kitchen I do use liquid dishsoap and I put it into the foam pump to save a bit.

    I use bar soap or the most concentrated form of a soap (or other product, deoderant for example) that I can find. Why should I pay Proctor and Gamble (or whomever) to add water to something?

    I feel liquid soap is more sanitary

    I use liquid soap (and prefer it over bar soap) most of the time. I do have some bar soap but it is tucked away in my stockpile.

    Liquid soap for me.

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links, but just google (or whatever search engine you use) on 'staph infection sharing soap' and you will get plenty of hits. No more sharing bar soap for me.

    I use bar soap in the shower since it is only my husband and I at home now. I use the Kirks Castile soap and it has a nice clean old fashioned smell but I use pump soap at the sinks for the grandchildren.

    Thanks for the info. I like bar soap in the shower but I have often thought about the sanitary thing with it.
