    Default Shower Gel

    Some shower gels are really thin and you squeeze hoping not to squirt out an unnecessarily large amount - not easy to do. I think they do it on purpose so that you waste loads.

    For about the past year I have decanted the contents of the "squeezer" into an old hand soap dispenser with the push down doodah. I reckon I am using abouit 5 times less than I was. Well worth doing.
    Buy Bose...And get your parking validated!.

    I don't want to be a party pooper but shower gels and shampoos are full of harmful chemicals (Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate (SLS/SLES), Dioxane, Parabens, Propylene glycol, Diethanolamine or DEA, Fragrance, Triclosan, etc.) a truly horrid cocktail. My advice, just use some simple natural soap to avoid the chemicals and as a bonus you wont have the squirting problem either.

    That's funny. I'm 70 now and I've been using them for as long as I can remember. Nothings fallen off yet, but maybe I'm just one of the lucky ones.

    Maybe nothing has fallen off you, but can you be so sure that our marine wildlife has had the same luck?

    Yep, having worked for over thirty years in chemistry I have to completely agree with you. Soap however is also a chemical cocktail so what to do...? Soapless cleaners are usually pH neutral whereas soap is not, it is generally alkaline being based around sodium hydroxide and fat. I way prefer soap.

    I've recently gone back to good ole Wright's Coal Tar soap.

    I'd forgotten just how beautiful the smell is, though it is also a bit Marmite as some people can't stand it.

    I even bought a couple of these for my bathroom to really take it back to the 70s

    Linn Sondek LP12, Ittok, A&R P77 > Musical Fidelity XLPS v3 Phono Stage
    Sony CDP-XE520 CD Player > SMSL Sanskrit DAC

    Grado SR80 headphones

    I'm a bath person. I hate showers because it's like being rained on indoors.
