Don't ever spank it with anti-bacterial soap. Feels good at first, but its bad news.

Well, you can believe whatever you want, but I know for a fact that I have not seen a single camel in my house since I started using it

Using it in the first place is using it improperly.

Soap doesn't need antibiotic chemicals to work.

You mean I'm not supposed to slather myself with it from head to toe in the shower, twice a day? Woops.

Carbolic soap is good. Although many lamer chemists will shout "Danger! Benzene rings!" and run away for a number of reasons too hard to explain. Man up you whooses!

You don't have to kill all the microbes, you just need to scrub them off of your hands.

We've switched back to non-antibacterial soap at home. There's like one brand available unless you go with the "tea tree and badger's pubic hair" natural shiat that costs $30 an ounce.

/ apologies to Mr. Connolly

There's only one brand of non-antibacterial soap where you live?

We use Method soaps at Target for hand washing and Dove soap for the shower (sometimes we splurge and i pick up a slab of L'Occitane soap because those soaps last forever and smell great).

You're supposed to dip your balls in it.

I don't use that stuff, I need bacteria.

So in the Andromeda Strain in 1969, there was this flash sterilizer that you stood under and it burned off the outer layer of your skin (and everything on it).  Just turned it to ash.

Did that ever exist?

This.

Not to mention that there is good bacteria on your skin and using this soap will kill that as well. The only place this stuff should be used is hospitals.

Also, don't use Vick's Vapo-Rub...feels good at first--and at second, for that matter--but it's bad news once you finish.

I actually do that. Well, once a day. It's not that I really feel like I need the triclosan, except for the old armpits, but bar soap creeps me out, and the only soap I really like the feel of is liquid Dial. Most, if not all, liquid Dial has triclosan in it.

For once I'm glad to be female as it is socially acceptable for me to cleanse my face with a soap designed for that purpose alone, a soap that goes nowhere near my ass. Zero confusion.

Besides, if you use a washcloth and mix up which bar you used first, you just smeared ass all over your face anyway.

I discovered in college that soaps with triclosan in them given me a crazy rash.  So I guess I've avoided becoming one of those people who breeds triclosan-resistant bacteria, since I don't use products with triclosan in them.

I'm a woman also, and while I do wash my face in the shower, I use a dedicated soap for it (Neutrogena) and that soap doesn't go anywhere else on my body.  Similarly, one wash cloth is for face only and no other body parts.  Cleaning my butt is the last thing I do, and it involves following up with hand sanitizer when I get out.

/why yes I did take an anti-sepsis protocol class, why do you ask?
//also, feminine hygiene wipes are awesome for butt cleaning

I'm surprised anyone still uses it.  I guess a lot of people still have their "I want to believe" moments.

/Ivory soap came out with a scentless liquid soap, so I don't have to use the perfumed crap.

That is one more than the two grocery stores where I shop tend to have.  They have smelly goos without the stuff but they aren't soap and wouldn't clean anything.

Why aren't the anti-vax people out being anti-triclosan?

I saw something were a team was trying to find fungus attacks at the start of one of the antibiotic resistant staph like infections where they were working on the theory that a fungus does the initial damage and then the MRSA makes use of the weakened area to chew on the soft yummy flesh below.  Many antibacterial soaps are worse than water when reducing fungal growth.
