Is Bar Soap Wasteful Compared to Liquid Soap?
Recently Vice put out an article called "Keep Your Disgusting Bar Soap Away From Me and My Body Wash." They came up with the idea that there are only two reasons a person could have for using bar soap, which were "that it’s cheaper than liquid" and "there’s no plastic involved, and that’s important to you as someone who cares about the environment." While these points are true, there are not the only other reasons, not to mention sulfates that are common in bottled body wash. Part of their gripe was surrounding whether a house guest would be grossed out at the prospect of bathing with a bar that contained a lonely curly hair stuck on it. First of all any host knows it is proper to give their potential house guest a brand new bar for their disposal. Furthermore, curly or straight hairs can be found anywhere in a bathroom whether the bather uses bottles or bar soaps, this is common.

According to some studies we spend more on liquid soap, shower gels and body wash than on bar soaps. Some consumers believe that when they pump the liquid soap while washing their hands or body they waste more product.  While it seems that they save more with a bar soap.

For every wash, the average person uses 0.35 grams of bar soap, compared to 2.3 grams of liquid. ... Bar soap is over 3.5 times cheaper than liquid (numbers based on this specific price comparison and may fluctuate, depending on cost and brands)

Because cost is an important factor in our economy consumers prefer bar soaps versus liquid soaps.
