    No but what kind of soap do you use?

    Because every soap I tried stops working after a few showers. Not much bubbles anymore.

    Standard bar soaps aren't good for your skin. You should use a good liquid or gel soap instead.

    Yes, but then you are more tempted to use it as lube.

    DOMS just knows it takes longer to get liquid or gel soaps off the floor when he drops them in the shower.

    maybe it's your water and not the soap.

    How Water Hardness Affects Cleaning Action

    Although soap is a good cleaning agent, its effectiveness is reduced when used in hard water. Hardness in water is caused by the presence of mineral salts - mostly those of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg), but sometimes also iron (Fe) and manganese (Mn). The mineral salts react with soap to form an insoluble precipitate known as soap film or scum.

    Soap film does not rinse away easily. It tends to remain behind and produces visible deposits on clothing and makes fabrics feel stiff. It also attaches to the insides of bathtubs, sinks and washing machines.

    Some soap is used up by reacting with hard water minerals to form the film. This reduces the amount of soap available for cleaning. Even when clothes are washed in soft water, some hardness minerals are introduced by the soil on clothes. Soap molecules are not very versatile and cannot be adapted to today's variety of fibers, washing temperatures and water conditions.
