1. A common bar of soap can transfer bacteria
Many people find a bar of soap very dirty, especially if it is used by several people. We understand this all too well and we would probably shiver in disgust if we did not know this: bacteria cannot be transferred via a bar of soap. You can use a bar of soap for a very long time and because it dries up by itself, dirty moulds do not stand a chance. All you have to do is make sure that the bar of soap is dry when you use it for yourself. Bar soap is designed in such a way that once it is dry it cleans itself. So, if you share a shower with people, make sure that you always keep the bar of soap outside the shower so that it can dry completely.
