With everything getting the holiday treatment, why not your hand soap?
Softsoap Scentsations Limited Edition Holiday Liquid Hand Soaps offers three holiday scents: Enchanting Sugar Plum, Spiced Berry Bliss and Wintermint Wonderland. We installed bottles at the kitchen and bathroom sinks.
They may get the family to wash their hands more often! And in our germophobic crowd, they make good party favors.
There’s no information at the Softsoap website, but what more do you need to know?
ARE YOU A GERMOPHOBE OR A MYSOPHOBE?
Germophobia/germaphobia means “fear of germs,” coined in modern times. But back in 1897, the term mysophobia was coined by Dr. William Alexander Hammond, who served as Surgeon General of the United States Army during the Civil War. The word combines the Greek musos, “uncleanness” and phobos, “fear.”
Other medical terms, such as bacillophobia, bacteriophobia, molysmophobia/molysomophobia, rhypophobia, rupophobia and spermophobia, indicate a pathological fear of contamination and germs or the need to compulsively wash one’s hands.
Of course, you don’t need a phobia to keep those hands clean!
