Using Bubble Bath as Soap

Woman washing her hands with bubble bath soapI buy large containers of bubble bath or shampoo at the dollar store and use these to refill my soap dispensers in my bathroom. In the past I used watered-down dish soap, but this made my hands dry, so I switched to Bubble bath or Shampoo as they don't dry my hands out.


It cost much less than buying liquid soap refills and helps me save money. Every penny counts!

I've seen suggestions for using bubble bath as a substitute for hand soap, but it isn't antibacterial is it?

After having been in the field of nursing for over 15 years I have become irritated with people constantly believing the advertising world. First of all, "all soap" is antibacterial or surgeons would not use it to scrub up with. However the so called antibacterial soaps are much harsher and actually have been linked to compromising our immune systems by way of allowing the various kinds of bacteria to become immune to antibiotic treatment.


Just use regular soap on a consistent basis and you'll be much safer.

Does anyone know if bubble bath can be used as liquid soap? I don't take a lot of baths and I'd like to use up the bottles of bubble bath I've received as gifts.
