When you use a brand new bar of soap, how long does this bar last you? From the time that you opened it, from the time that it is no longer of use. How long does it last you? Mines may last about 2 weeks.. I use it up pretty fast. What about you?

Interesting discussion you have started here cream97. My soap usually seems to last me anywhere from a month and a half to two months if it is just me in the house. I use one of those puffs in the shower. I lather it all up and I think that helps me to save on soap. It is amazing how much longer something lasts when it is just me in the house. When I was living with my boyfriend it probably lasted only half that time or less. I guess that shower puff really does make a difference on saving on the soap. LOL Thanks for starting this discussion, and have a great day!

Well it normally lasts for around 3 week, i live with my family, and there is five of us to use the soap, or sometimes i use my own. But yeah, its normally around 3-4 week untill it gets used up.

Hello cream. I use both soap and soap powder simultaneously. I have not paid any attention to the length of time that I use either of them, but I think that it depends on the quantity of clothes when one bar of soap or a bag of laundry powder is used up. Good day, friend.

I am using the Sarvodhaya Neem Sandal Soap, which comes for me about 3 weeks, and when it gets smaller, I just use for toilet soap.......

[i]Hi cream, Mine will last 2 to 3 weeks since I am also using some liquid soap but if I am not, maybe just 2 weeks for the bar soap![/i]

Well this really depends on the children and how often they leave it in the bath !!! Know where I am coming from?? But I think it does last quite a long time, more than two weeks and there is five of us who use the soap.

Time varies. It depends upon the amount of time we use it. For example we always wash our hands and use it or we always take showers and we use bar of soap (I am talking about the bah soap). It depends upon the activities we have in a day the we need to wash ourselves often and used up the soap. Sometimes, mine used up in a week or 2 weeks. I don;t remember I used the bar of soap and lasted for a month.
