Sharing Bar Soap Cannot Make You Sick
Sharing Bar Soap Cannot Make You Sick and is Way Better for the Environment
Bar soap does not spread germs, is way more environmentally friendly, and way cheaper.
Liquid hand soaps have replaced bar soaps largely because of unfounded fears that bar soap is “covered in germs.” Study after study has shown this is not true. If all Americans switched back to bar soaps and shampoos, we could make a HUGE dent in plastic waste.
The average American household has at least five plastic bottles of hand soap, body wash and shampoo. If we say these soaps and shampoos are replaced every three months, it seems fair to guess the average American household goes through at least 20 plastic soap and shampoo bottles a year.
