I alternate with both. I just love so many of the bar soaps out there, especially Caress and Dove (calming night smells soooo good!) I have so many favorites in the shower gels and soaps, so I prefer to use both.
well we used to use the poofs and body wash but steve has this bad habit of destroying his. than mine. Butthead! lol. so i went back to useing my homemade soap. we used homemade gel too..but i got tired of replaceing the poof so often.i should mention i also sewed myself a little towel cloth that holds my soap inside ..so not muss no fuss. and no slippery soap.
