  • We don't use Antibacterial soap. It's not necessary & too drying to the skin. I like Softsoap best & it's reasonably priced. If you insist on antibacterial, Softsoap makes one.

  • yeah,skip the antibacterial,and teach the kids to wash their hands properly.
    I just get one of those big bottles of Suave shampoo,and use a pump style dispenser. Soap is soap.

  • Anti-bacterial soap is bad for your children. So is hand sanitizer. Your kids will be much healthier if you quit using both.

  • I agree with the ladies who are saying just use regular soap, antibacterial soap is not the best choice for everyday washing.

  • I buy softsoap for the bathroom. If you buy one small one with the hand pump it is about $2,then you buy the big bottle for about $4 to refill the small ones, you can use the big one to refill the smaller ones about 5 times.

  • I have to agree with the others on the hand santizer. I only keep hand sanitizer in my car for rare instances when we might desperately need to wash hands but simply can't get to soap and water. Otherwise, it's soap and water all the way.

  • You don't "need" anti bacterial. It's not necessary So just use anything you find that fits in your budget.
