This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Soap on a rope wraps around the wrist to keep it from slipping from your hands while showering and hangs for quick drying to prevent it from becoming a big glob of mush and collecting bacteria when not in use. It is economical, lasts longer than standard bars, and is particularly useful for those with mobility issues. Here's a list of men's, women's, and unisex options to select from. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best soaps on a rope on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

July 22, 2020:

Some people view soap on a rope as a novelty item and overlook its usefulness as a bathing aid. Not only does the cord give you greater control of the slippery bar, but it also allows it to dry faster, which helps it last longer.

The straps on soaps such as Aramis Solid Body Shampoo and Caswell-Massey are long enough to prevent the bricks from dropping to the shower floor without causing wrist burns.

Brands like LifEase Lassoap attach the bars to a bacteria-resistant marine cord to reduce the spread of germs. Since the soap comes secured to a 40-inch rope, they are especially useful for the elderly and those with physical limitations. However, it is not meant for wearing around the neck. The lanyard allows a person to get the soap without straining to reach high or bending low and risk falling in the tub.

Basically, there are three types of soap: conventional, milled, and artisanal. Conventional soaps like LifEase Lassoap are mass-produced and may contain artificial colors and ingredients. They are typically cheaper only take a few days to cure.

Milled soaps use a vegetable-based oil and have a higher concentration of conditioning ingredients to keep the skin healthy and hydrated. La Lavande and Archipelago Botanicals, for example, take a little longer to process, which gives the soap a softer texture.

Artisanal soaps like the Senteurs D'Orient are made in small batches using organic ingredients to retain the soap's integrity.
