    If you use bar soap put the scraps in an old hand soap jar with a little water.
    It turns to goo that works fine as a hand soap.

    I find liquid soaps don't rinse away well enough. They seem to leave a film which bugs me. Same for shower gels and the like.
    I only use plain old Ivory in bar form for anything skin related. I've tried other stuff, always go back.

    This stuff. Half a pump will do. Inexpensive too.

    I don’t care what I use, but I need to have one of those pump dispensers that turn the liquid soap into foam.

    It’s like magic to me.

    Foaming hand wash

    hands so clean, you could eat with them

    it’s 4pm. do you know where your hands have been? probably better just to wash them and not think about it. what you should think about is what you’re washing with. unless you’re already using our naturally derived, triclosan-free, heavenly scented hand wash. in which case, feel free to give the next person you encounter a high five. you’ve earned it.
    free + clear

    shamelessly clean. no dyes. no perfumes.

    Greetings from Sunny New Jersey
    I like Method's foaming pump, but when it's empty, I fill it with a mixture of 1 part Dr. Bronner's Citrus Castille soap and 2 parts water. Lot's cheaper and works just as well. Mmmm... lemons!

    I would not make this decision lightly. Maybe one of our TDPRI members could put you in touch with a good liquid hand soap consultant. Many people I know personally have had to deal with the aftermath of an inferior liquid hand soap purchase. The cost, stress and anguish of such an important life choice can be high if not made correctly. Seek out the advice of a professional as these contracts are hard to renegotiate once entered into. Oh wait my bad,!! thats time shares!!! disregard!!!

    I like this stuff, been using it since I was a kid because I deserve a little luxury every day..
    It's cheap, smells familiar and washes well.
    It may or may not help with achieving 70's vintage tone.

    Dr. Bronner’s is the bomb. I’ve washed with it for at least 45 years.

    Dr Bronners - no contest. It's really concentrated though, so figure out a dilution that works for your purposes.

    Gave up on the stuff couple of years back. Buy bars again, wrapped in paper, no plastic bottle and the grandchildren can’t squirt it all over!

    What the heck. Are you trying to wash your hair with it too? We use liquid hand soap and a liquid dishwashing soap. Two different animals.

    I have been using Dawn in a refillable dispenser for years. Just a drop is all it takes.

    .

    Go to Home Depot and find the big cube-bottle of Liquid Soap. Use that to refill your pumps.

    Dawn will cut grease but if you put that in your soap dispenser (with some water to thin it out) it will strip oils from your hand so much that your skin will crack and bleed.

    Or read up on the internet how to make liquid soap from bar soap.

    I don’t get this one. I thought it was a generational thing. My kids, both in their 30’s won’t use bar soap. They don’t like to touch it. My grandkids don’t even know what it is. But then there’s my wife. She’s 69 and has changed over to Dove liquid hand soap at home. She’ll use the stuff in tiny bottles at hotels but she won’t touch a bar. She brings the bar soap back in her luggage for me. I figure that a hotel bar lasts a month of showers for me. A bottle of Dove lasts maybe two weeks for her. An incredible waste of money, IMO. She uses fancy shampoo too. Can’t strip the color. I use what I bring back from the hotels. I have no color left in the little hair That remains and I figure I’m saving enough using hotel shampoo to cover the cost of strings.

    That liquid stuff often builds up in the sink if you are lazy and don't wipe it down for a month plus like me. It leaves a hard to remove greasy film. Bar soap doesn't do that. It cleans just as good but wont gunk up your plumbing etc. I had blocked drains a while back and i'm pretty sure it was due to using a giant pump pack of body wash that mixed with hair clippings from using clippers. They put all kinds of stuff in the liquid washes that are not associated with cleaning but are often what you would want to clean off your hands etc.
