    I think most soaps smell better than I do-so I think I will keep using some kind of healthy lavender soap though and it makes you relax-also its good for many skin conditions as well. A lot of soaps can make your skin to dry or to oily sometimes but lavender is very soothing to your skin. I think if you do shower with soap though,you should go light with the suds and not overdue it-but the fragrance is wonderful with soaps-so thats a hard habit to break.

    No. I can never do without bathing with soap daily. Sometimes I have a bath/shower twice - morning and evening on a humid day. I think getting rid of bathing soap just to save money is getting to the extreme and bordering on ridiculousness. Soap definitely has a very important space with hygiene. While some people may be able to get away with not using soap on a daily basis, some cannot due to reasons like body odour. To advise people with a body smell to get rid of soap just to save money is asking them to commit social suicide. Not every can do this.

    Actually, its not hard to get rid of soap. Long ago, people didn't use
    soap but plant extracts from Sodom apple. The fact remains that the
    human skin is very easy to clean since dirt mostly consists of salt
    and dust. But a better method is to use cheap soap that lathers
    easily.

    There is actually no free wifi someone just decided to open his internet and probably doesn't know you are connected to it. Back to the issue of not bathing with soap I'm not sure you will get a very clean wash by using sand and rinsing your body in fresh water. Our skin excrete sweat and oily substances it's soap that can wash off these excretes properly. Personally I advocate for antiseptic soaps.

    I would not ever get rid of bath soaps! Hygiene is very important to me. Although there were some days that I'm too lazy to take a shower, I would not go out not feeling fresh. If you want to save money on soaps, just use a bath gel. Put a little bit of lofah on the bath gel and it works wonders because a little goes a long way.

    Getting rid of soap to save money is a nice idea. It is true that it is healthy because most soaps are made of chemicals which aren't good for our skin especially in the long run .

    But with all the daily activities and being prone to picking up bacteria from our surrounding, I doubt if we can live without soap.

    I will try and see how bringing in buckets of sand goes with the rest of the family. I wish ti were that easy though and that would be a good thing to cut out, but probably not too doable for me.
