[Comments] (10) Leonard's Tips For Slovenly Living #2: If you run out of human soap, you can probably wash yourself with dish soap.

I haven't tried this one either, but I might have to soon.

On the few occasions I have washed my hands with dish soap, the result was acceptable. Clean right down to the squeak!

I washed my hair with dishsoap once. We were camping and I got tree sap in it. It actually worked really well at getting the sap out, but my hair was all tangled.

"Human Soap" makes me think of Fight Club.

That comment reminds me of THE LIVING SOAP.

Shall I send you soap? which scent would you prefer?

Someone was having a bath in washing-up liquid in a book I've just read (Ian Rankin's "The Falls"), it being a thing from the character's childhood, and presumably not completely improvised:-

"You came in muddy from the football pitch, and it was a hot bath with washing-up liquid. It wasn't that the family couldn't afford bubble-bath: 'It's just washing-up liquid at a posh price,' his mother had said."

(I couldn't remember which book it was at all, or if I'd just made it up - Amazon content searching is *amazing*.)

Rachel, don't send me soap. I'll feel even more like a slob. When I absolutely run out of soap I'll make a trip to the store and get more.
