Way back at the beginning of the blog, I wrote an article about making liquid hand soap. I did make it a couple of times, but then I just thought actually it is a whole lot less effort to just use bar soap. Also I read an article saying that the soap can go off and it probably needs to be kept in the fridge which isn’t ideal when you need it in the bathroom. So I bought a whole load pure olive oil bar soap and we have been using it ever since.
The problem with soap is that I keep wondering whether it is actually doing more good than harm, doing more harm than good or doing nothing much at all. Soap takes energy to make it and it uses up resources. It needs to be packaged, transported, sold and bought. If it is not necessary then we can all save ourselves a lot of time, effort, money and precious resources by quitting it altogether.
