Res ipsa loquitur.


But in case you've got the sound turned off, here's what creator Dave Hakkens had to say about it:


"Most of our classic bars of soap are being replaced by soap pumps. However, a lot of these pump soaps contain a lot of chemicals. Not only the soap itself, also its packaging. The main reason to use a soap pump is because it's more hygienic and easier. I wanted to give the classic, more natural bar of soap the same features so we could start using it again."

Avo, I'm often wondered the same thing about the long-term consequences of those ubiquitous hand sanitizers.

I read in someplace long forgotten that one bar of soap equals four bottles of liquid soap. (Perhaps I read it here?) And every time I think of it, I remember the soap grater you featured here.

Brings new meaning to "milled" soap.

I fear hand sanatizers (in most places except for family use in hospitals when visiting) for their contribution to increasingly resistant bacteria. A good paw scrub with soap and warm water should be a 4-5 times a day experience. I use liquid soap produced by the action of KOH-4H2O on various plant-derived moderate chain hydrocarbons in a process known as saponification. (More or less, lye and fat.)

That stuff is soap. Most of the cleaners we use these days are detergents. They are far more complex and unnecessary for most ordinary paw care.

About hand washing:
1. In shower or bath; and
2. After excretion; and,
3. Before and after meals; and,
4. Before brushing teeth at bedtime.

Needless to say, always wash before and during food prep / service, wrangling kids, playing with pooches, changing litter ( Dr. Lister suggests something like this for medical types, or so I read) and you might think about using a dry paper towel or an elbow to exit a public john.
