While a liquid soap dispenser is very convenient, a good old solid bar of soap is a much ‘greener’ option, as it’s more concentrated and doesn’t require a plastic bottle. But squishy, wet soap bars next to the basin are a pain, and they harbour bacteria too. So, what to do?

It takes an ordinary bar of soap, and shaves off tiny soap flakes every time you want to wash your hands.
Brilliant! The main reason I don’t like bars of soap is because I don’t want to rub a slippery germ fest on my body that someone else has been rubbing on their body. This would probably do the trick

Coolest thing ever.
You know those pvs that you click on off of a random link, knowing absolutely nothing about the group, not even what genre they are, but 30 seconds into the video you already know you will become a super-fan because you need all info and songs by the group right fucking now?

Just watch it.
This exact thing happened to me with this exact video several weeks ago.
I know the feels
OK, I’m actually kinda excited about this… :D
