There are new brands of all-purpose body/hair/face bar soaps hitting the market that do a wonderful job of getting you clean without the waste of plastic bottles in the shower. But over time, bar soaps of any kind break down and get soggy. One trick is to place a new sponge on the soap dish or shelf where you keep your bar of soap. Then simply place the bar of soap on top of the sponge. The soap will no longer be sitting in a pool of water, and it won’t stick to the dish or shelf, making it easier to handle and use.
