View Full Version : So I was just in the shower

11-21-2007, 05:45 AM
and I didn't have any soap, right? But my body was all dirty! So, being the quick-thinking, resourceful human being that I am, I used shampoo on both my body AND in my hair! And now I am all squeaky-clean and fresh-smelling.

So my questions to you, my fellow EoFFers, are thus:
1) Have you ever used shampoo as soap? Or, heaven forbid, soap as shampoo?
2) What creative substitutes have you used in your lifetime?

I usually use both soap and shampoo on a scrubby thing.

But thats just me.

Check your bill next time, they actually charge you a very trivial amount for those.

I use shampoo as "soap" all the time. But I'm just fuzzy so it counts :D

I have used soap as shampoo/conditioner several times when I was younger.

I would, but I've never actually stayed at a hotel.

I used soap as shampoo and it sucked :/

My hair was so dry I had to rub lotion on the roots of my hair and my scalp. That was back when my hair was much longer.

Yes, I've used shampoo!

If there's a will there's a way - that's what the cavemen proved to us. Nowadays we think using shampoo instead of soap is a major creative breakthrough - but then, we don't invent things, we rely on them.

>___> I ran out of soap once so I thought I'd use my roommates bodywash. Well, I wasn't really paying that much attention, and I saw this bottle that said "Feminine Wash" so I was like oh body wash *uses* and then later I realized it wasn't really body wash. Oh well, it worked :choc:

My Strawberry Milkshake is shampoo, body wash, and bubble bath. =O

Of course I used shampoo. Vanilla shampoo+conditioner all-in-one, to be precise. It made my body all soft and nice-smelling, better than some proper body washes actually.

I've used shampoo as body wash before because I've ran out. Once I got a shampoo/body wash so it did both jobs!

I just don't run out of soap.

I sometimes use shampoo as soap for fun.. It's so bubbly and foamy :hat: Also, once I mistook soap for being shampoo and thus used it in my hair... not pleasent.

I once used washing-up detergent as schampoo. XD
It worked, but sucked.

I just jump out of the shower and grab a new bar of soap... :P

Bath and Body works and a brand sold at Macy's and Sephora make shampoo/bath soap stuff and it's awesome.

And no, I tend to horde bath soap so if ALL of it's missing then somethings wrong.

Buy combined shower gel and shampoo.

I once used shower gel for shampoo when we ran out on a camping trip. I've used shampoo lods of times on my body as I'm allergic to soap. :)

I want to say that shampoos are more acidic and soaps (obviously) basic, but I don't remember where i read that or whether or not that's true. but it'd be a good reason not to soap your hair.

my shampoo makes me itchy. I guess that means I shouldn't use it, but whatever, 12 years too late for that!
