    Bars are just rather messy and unwieldy.

    Bar soap is unwieldy? That smacks of mannered and affected prissiness.

    What do you use?
    Cheapo Softsoap from Costco. The options as far as liquid soaps go are severely limited.

    I use Edwards Green soap. It's proudly made in Great Britian.

    I would like to branch out and buy some quality soaps but can't justify spending the money on them when I smell just as clean using good ol' Irish Spring.

    I have found that many of the more expensive soaps last a lot longer, which brings the price down.

    It's very verdant. Like willow bark.

    Like raw leather, waiting to be stretched and tanned.

    My preference is triple-milled bar soaps that smell good.

    I just don't get that clean feeling when using liquid soap.
    The triple-milled production method is used by the "premium" soap manufacturers to create a much denser bar which makes these soaps last a lot longer than something like Ivory.

    Brand wise I use soaps from Caswell-Massey, Bronnley, Yardley, Vinolia, L'Occitane, Pre de Provence, Claus Porto and Magno.

    At this point I probably have enough bar soap to last me 10 years.

    Dial. 60 cents a bottle.

    Soap is soap is soap.

    Dial is antibacterial and scentless, and that's all I care about.
