To clarify my previous question I Made soup not sure if I rinsed off all the liquid dish soap, Storebrand, on mixer do I need to worry?
Not harmful: Traces of dishwashing soap are on our dishes, glassware, and dinnerware. It is not harmful to us. That being said, humans put too much junk into our Earth's water supply. Thus, we should use as little soap as possible, and try to use environmentally "friendlier" soaps. ...Read more

No: All soaps, powder or liquid, have a bipolar molecule with a water soluble group on one end and fat soluble on the other. Most persistent dirt is fat soluble, which binds to the fatty end of the soap, and the water soluble end carries it off. Powders and liquids vary in concentration and this may affect the power, but both act by the same mechanism. ...Read more
I prefer: Skin ceuticals....There are many wonderful cleansers for many different skin types.

A very good skin investment you will use forever is a clarisonic with any cleanser--it will always cleanse the best without "pulling" on the skin. ...Read more

Keep vag. Life alive: A woman can just use the same mild shower soap that she washes everywhere else with, and just gently rub the places between the big labia and her thighs, and between the big labia and her small inner labia, and around the clitoris. That should gently remove excess oils (sebum) and stuff. Of course, "over-cleaning" can lead to rashes. The actual vagina is inside the body and does not need washing. ...Read more
Probably OK...but...: Anything to increase lubrication and ease friction for sex pleasure is okay to use with care: Watch for possible skin sensitivity to product ingredients and avoid the mucosa such as that of urethra/vagina if any possible. Of course, let common sense tell us what we should do. As to being "good" or "bad", it's personal feeling and decision. But, if still in doubt, ask Doc timely. ...Read more

Depends on skin: One skin cleanser may work better for you than another depending on your skin, whether it is dry or oily, light or dark complexion, etc. I usually recommend a neutral or hypoallergenic formula, avoiding perfumes and other additives. Sometimes I suggest a pure soap such as dove, but it may be too drying for already dry skin. You should try different brands and formulas to see what works for you. ...Read more

Is liquid hand soap in public restrooms contaminated or clean if people dipped their hands into it? Its that pink liquid stuff. Is it antiviral?
Everything has germs: Everywhere around us, especially in bathrooms, there are germs (some are in soap). Looking at it that way, everything is contaminated... such is life on Earth. If it worries a person too much, then he should look at his world in a different light: we and germs all share this planet together, and it is only a problem when a few bad types of germs get inside our bodies and grow to large numbers. ...Read more
Suffering from anxiety. Plan to have baby Hiv in new bar soap possible? Used in a shower Touched unkown liquid hiv? Washed hands right away. Pls help
No: I have never heard of anyone contracting HIV by touching a bar of soap. There needs to be a point of entry into the body for the virus to find its way in your body. The likelihood of having a live virus on a bar of soap is extremely unlikely. If you are very anxious about this, it would be wise to have an HIV test especially if you never had it done before. ...Read more
I recently used a scented, beaded liquid soap. Ever since I've been having vaginal irritation. Itching & discomfort. Its frustrating. What should I do?
Vaseline, Dove soap: Scented soaps contain alcohol products which can dry the skin. Stop using scented products and switch to a mild, unscented soap like dove to clean the vulvar area. There is no need to be aggressive with cleaning either. In the meantime, to reduce the irritation, apply vaseline to the affected skin area. It is a great skin protectant. ...Read more
I had some Bic White Out liquid on my finger. Washed my finger quickly with soap&water but the white out was still on my finger&felt sticky. Accidentally touched this sticky white out with my lips. Can this white out harm my body when it gets inside?
No: Small amounts of white out liquid are harmless. Likewise with very small amounts of almost any commonly used school supply or office supply product in the US, probably also in all developed countries. One exception is Super Glue (cyanoacrylates), which can quickly glue skin together and can also cause severe eye damage if it gets into an eye. ...Read more
