    Soap usually works its magic pretty quickly. You can give it a few seconds to battle evil with its lathery charms before safely washing away all the corruption that has been wrought. And the day is saved!

    ...My bar of soap is level 84. It battles a lot of evil.

    Perhaps 3-5 minutes would be ideal. I don't think much about it though. big_smile

    I'm weird about this. I hate the feeling of soap in my "creases" so I wash it off pretty much right away. So, I'd say after a few seconds, you're good to go.

    Maybe follow the "ABC" rule lol.

    I leave it on as long as it takes to shave my legs.

    Give it five minutes to remove the bacteria

    The shower is a warm,  wet environment, and we carry bacteria into that perfect place for it to grow.   Get the soap on, scrub, get the soap off, and get out.  Long showers promote bacterial growth after the soap has had its initial effect.

    I think 3-5 five minutes are sufficient if one is using anti-bacterial soap.

    I use a small towel into which I lather the soap first and then I rub the towel on my body. Right after, I immediately rinse off the soap
