Do germs live on bars of soap?
The question: Are bars of soap covered in germs? The answer: Germs can and most likely do live on all bars of soap, but it’s very unlikely they will make you sick or cause a skin infection. Generally, those with a compromised immune system are really the only ones who should be extra cautious and stick to liquid soap.
Which lasts longer bar soap or liquid soap?

Why is bar soap better than liquid?
Both liquid soap and bar soap are effective against bacteria and viruses, but they have slight differences. Liquid soap can be less drying, since it tends to have added moisturizers. But the friction created by rubbing bar soap against your hands can be more effective at removing visible debris like dirt.
Why do people not like bar soap?
The consumer-research firm Mintel found that nearly half of U.S. consumers believe bar soap to be “covered in germs after use.” Less than a third of those ages 65 and over reportedly believe this negative perception, as opposed to a whopping 60 percent of those ages 18 through 24.
How dirty is bar soap?
It’s dirty, but that doesn’t make it a health hazard. Soap can indeed become contaminated with microorganisms, whether it’s in liquid or bar form. According to a series of tests conducted in the early 1980s, bars of soap are often covered with bacteria and carry a higher load than you’d find inside a liquid dispenser.

When should you cut soap?
