    Note: The soap's for washing my hands, not the lenses.

    I've been using Dial Complete (foam dispensing) hand soap because it's
    easier to rinse off residue from my hands ... but it does contain

    Any other suggestions.

    P.S. My dad refilled my Dial Complete bottle with diluted moisturizing
    hand soap without telling me ... I just found out. Skin moisturizers
    and contact lenses don't mix!!!!!

    I have Prozac hand soap. Yeah, it was a freebie from the nice detail
    man, but I like the container so much I put whatever hand soap I buy at
    Costco into it. I had never thought about soap containing
    "moisturizers" (extra grease) except for Dove (which is used only by
    people who love to clean rings out of their bathtubs), so now I have one
    more thing to worry about.

  3. Not difficult. Clear liquids are single phase. Cloudy liquids
    are multiple phases. A cloudly liquid soap has suspended oil.
    A clear one [almost] cannot.

    Oh shit, I have a whole unopened-except-to-sniff gallon of pretty pearly
    handsoap that smells like almonds, like Jergens hand lotion did when I
    was a kid.


    Water, sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, lauramide dea, glycol stearate,
    sodium chloride, cocamidopropyl betaine, citric acid, fragrance, dmdm
    hydantoin, polyquaternium-7, aloe barbadensis gel, tetrasodium edta,
    glycerin, silk peptide, hydrolyzed silk protein.

    Which of them is/are oil?

  5. Great. Give it to your kids/guest/self but not for
    handwashing before contacts.

    Partially hydrolized [beef] fat or synthetic.
    Also probably will not rinse well.

    Double shit. The only thing I use liquid soap for is washing my hands
    before contacts. I guess it will make OK bubblebath...
    Perfect. Just exactly what you want in a handsoap.
