I hate body wash

The first time I experienced body wash, I was stunned at the stupidity, what was wrong with a simple bar of soap – did they realize how hard it was to get lather up with liquid that was constantly being washing off and having to keep squeezing more out of the bottle? Body wash is like built in obsolecence for body cleaning – you buy a bottle and use a heck of a lot more quicker than with bar soap and it pisses me off.

Yes I completely understand those folks who don’t want stray pubic hairs showing up after a guest uses their bar of soap, I don’t like these people who really make a big deal about others using their bar and therefore force us to use liquid soap, but I understand them. Body wash sucks, anyone who truly values a good bar of soap can relate, but modern “conveniences” have skewed public opinion to the point that when I stay in people’s houses they hide all the bar soap and give me a mini body wash bottle.

Then they invented these body wash receptacles, the modern day wash cloth is not made of cloth and doesn’t do much washing. In fact, the first time I saw one of these supposed wash cloths hanging from the shower faucet, I thought it was a douche, I was scared to touch it and wondered why these frummies would just keep their vaginal cleaning aides sitting in the shower in plain view when they would never publicly admit that they had vaginas in the first place. Of course, years later, at about the same time I learned the difference between “your” and “you’re” I learned what exactly a douche bag was and the wash cloth for body wash it was not.

    In places like France, Italy, Spain, etc. most people use shower gel with a sponge (it doesn’t really work without one or with a washcloth). But yes, my eyes have been opened and now I prefer soap bar too, gel is wasteful, and a wet sponge left in the bathroom is like a Sushi kiddush for germs.

    Body wash is a chemical soup you squirt on your body. The squeegee thing is some modern-day version of the hairshirt. Long live soap bars!

    I’m starting to see it more often in hotels. They have it inside the shower connected to the wall. Probably because they don’t want people taking home the extra soaps. I personally prefer bar soap as well though.

    Have you ever used Axe body wash ? Or, as they call it in the African American community, “Ask” body wash ?

    Since I live in an RV, and don’t want to have a bar of soap clanging around the shower when we drive, I bit the bullet and installed a few liquid dispensers. I use dial-soap liquid. Or the Wal-Mart Equate equivalent.

    I found that a ladies item called a pouf (or is that poof) was of value. It is made of a bunch of plastic netting, so it’s not absorbent, but it holds soap, and suds for washing. Thus you use a squirt of the liquid on the po[u|o]f and it builds up a lather, and you wash yourself. Then rinse the po[whatever]f with hot water, and it’s good to go again. Doesn’t seem like a germ-farm, either, since it was just washed with Dial.

    The Wal-mart large size glug of deoderant soap lasts forever, too.

    Amazing that washing oneself can become so complicated.

    @Ed Pretty sure the soap ain’t killing any germs.

    I came across this post by searching for “body wash sucks” after seeing a commercial for axe. Praise to you sir for calling out this most ridiculous of products. Who in gods name chooses to use body wash over a far superior bar of soap? Sickies, that’s who.

  • Avrumy April 28, 2011, 9:37 AM

    Body wash on a nylon “pouf” makes tons of suds, cleans and exfoliates all at once. You don’t pour body wash on your body or a wash cloth. Sheesh.
    And if you choose your product wisely, you come out of the shower smelling great.

    i never really thought to much about using body-wash over the years until I took a shower the morning of august 30th . i shaved washed my hair like normal then took my wash cloth and put it up to the pump of my body wash dispenser. Then all the sudden I got to thinking how many times am I going to have to pump this thing until the lather covers the washcloth enough so I can use it to wash my entire body? I wanted to find out so I counted. I had to pump it 15 times before the lather got to a point where I could use it for my whole body . Thats it I said I’m going back to bar soap. Call me old fashioned but that to me is ridiculous !!!
