It's all dirty...: Germs are everywhere. If you are overly concerned about dropping the soap and it becoming contaminated I bet these types of things routinely cause you great stress and anxiety. You should talk to your doctor about possible OCD. There are medicines and therapies that can help reduce stress in these situations. http://www.helpguide.org/articles/anxiety/obssessive-compulsive-disorder-ocd.htm

Wash and dry: Just wash them in warm soap and water and let them dry thoroughly before use.
