Me? I always make sure I rinse it off....

Raymond, in responding to Steve Makofsky's How do you throw out a garbage can?, asks How do you wash soap?

Now I remember an old Friends episode where this came up (The One Where Joey Moves Out), right at the beginning of the episode:

CHANDLER: Waaa-aaah.

JOEY: What?

CHANDLER: The spoon. You licked and-and you put. You licked and you put.

JOEY: Yeah, so?

CHANDLER: Well don't you see how gross that is? I mean that's like you using my toothbrush. You used my toothbrush?

JOEY: Well, that was only 'cause I used the red one to unclog the drain.

CHANDLER: Mine is the red one! Oh God. Can open, worms everywhere.

JOEY: Hey, why can't we use the same toothbrush, but we can use the same soap?

CHANDLER: Because soap is soap. It's self-cleaning.

JOEY: Alright, well next time you take a shower, think about the last thing I wash and the first thing you wash.

This little conversation is the explanation for my answer. I am always sure to rinse it off. Because I don't really tend to connect the last thing I washed yesterday with the first thing I wash today. Soap is self-cleaning, but you do have to actually clean it. :-)

Meh, I clean bottom up. By the time I get to my face, the soap is clean :)

Why do you people bother with soap bars when liquid soap is so much more convenient?

- You can't get it to be dirty
- It washes better
- It is refilable
- You can't drop it

The last thing can be very convenient in some circumstances where you would be in danger if you needed to bend to pick it up ;-)
