I really don't like liquid soap. The pump bottles it comes in are wasteful, it's often full of yucky chemicals, and I prefer rolling something around in my hands rather than having a little plastic bird beak regurgitate suds into my palm. Plus, it's so maddening when they clog and then squirt unpredictable arcs out beyond the sink and into the room.
I especially like this bar of soap - a gift from one of my watercolor students (who isn't really a 'student' at all, but a very accomplished painter). It looks like a lovely time-worn piece of marble, and I especially like it with the rocks!
