Have you ever noticed how some soaps lather up very well and super quick while others take a long time and you're rewarded with little more than shiny hands? Does that bug you? Well, it should!!! It's those soap bubbles that help water do its work of cleaning your skin. See, what happens is soap molecules surround germs and helps water flush them away. When we wash our hands, all kinds of yucky stuff such as dead skin, viruses, bacteria and fungus are surrounded by the soap and then get carried away by fast moving water. When this grime adheres to the soap's fatty acids, it becomes encapsulated in drops of water, which makes it easy to just rinse it off. Washing our hands is the single most important thing we can do to fight off infection, and no special anti-bacterial soaps are needed. Plus, I never feel quite clean unless I was able to cover myself in bubbles and then rinse them away to a squeaky gleam.
