Cleanliness is next to Godliness or so we’ve heard from various sources over the years, and no matter your religion, most of us don’t like to stink. Remember the smelly kid in class when you were young? Nobody wants to be that kid, and nowadays you don’t have to be as there are plenty of soapy choices to choose from. One thing we didn’t have when I was growing up was the miracle known as Body Wash, but now it’s everywhere and the old Bar Soap is slowly going the way of the dinosaur. That brings us to this article and our reasons for going with Body Wash over Bar Soap. Are you a non-believer in the Power of Body Wash? Are you still stuck in the 80s with Soap on a Rope? If so you’ll want to keep reading and check out our Top 5 reasons why Body Soap is better than Bar Soap…
1. Body wash lowers your Chances of Dying in the Shower
I’m sure at some point and time almost everyone has slipped and almost fallen in the shower. It’s a scary event that will jolt you out of your lovely shower concert in about 2 seconds flat. Sometimes you just zone out, maybe you’re thinking of the day ahead or that hot chick that works in the next cubicle. Other times something far more sinister is at work, and that something is Soap. It may seem innocent, but it’s really lurking on the shower shelf waiting for the right time to “slip” onto the shower floor and send you to your doom. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
2. No more Soap Scum
You know what really grinds my gears… Soap Scum! We’ve all seen it in the shower, and no where not talking about Soap that’s turned to a life of crime. We’re talking about the slippery colored substance that lives on shower shelves and in shower caddies all around the world. The point of actually getting into the shower is to get clean, and it sucks to look over and see a slimy substance right next to you. Well, we hope its soap scum as it looked like it had moved a few inches to the left last week.
3. Sharing Soap is Nasty
We’ll turn away from evil soap conspiracy theories for a minute to discuss the nastiness of sharing soap. It’s something I had actually never thought much about until a friend of mine brought it up recently after noticing his soap vanishing week after week. Was it a soap ghost? Nope, it was just his lazy roommates that ran out of their soap and started using his. Why’s that nasty? Well, when you think about how nasty some of us guys can be and the fact that the soap you use might have just been on someone else’s… well you get the point. If you use Body Soap no worries there…
4. RIP - “Drop the Soap Jokes”
If you’re ever watched a prison movie or have been to the big house yourself you’ve more than likely heard the phrase “Don’t drop the Soap” once or a thousand times. It’s always good for a laugh when you’re in the locker room horsing around with your crew, unless you’re on the receiving end of the joke or someone actually drops the soap. Well thanks to Body Wash you’ll never hear that joke again, as “Don’t’ drop the Body Wash” just isn’t near as funny. Body Wash will save you from the joke, but it might not save you from getting popped with a towel for having a fruity type of body wash at the gym which brings us to….
5. Variety is the Spice of Life
Sure, there are countless brands of Bar Soap out there, but have you ever seen how many types of Body Wash there is? Practically anyone who’s anyone in the Soap world has a brand of body wash or few hundred in some cases, but some that we like are Wash With Joe (coffee and mint), Kyoku for Men (ginger and tree root) and Baxter of California (orange and pear).
