Accordingly, what soap will not leave soap scum?
The ones that are not made of soap, and even those that do contain SOME soap, don't leave scum. But ACTUAL liquid soap can leave scum when used with water that's "hard" (not literally solid but containing calcium and/or magnesium salts). There's liquid soap, and liquid "soap".
Subsequently, question is, does bar soap leave more residue than liquid soap? Many people end up using more than twice the recommended amount. This in addition to the moisturizers in liquid soap, that leave a residue, require extra time to rinse off. With bar soap, it's pretty easy to tell when you've got enough suds, so not only is bar soap more convenient but it saves water.
Also Know, does body wash leave less soap scum?
Liquid "soaps" are actually detergents. They should dissolve very easily and leave little to no scum, but those sold as body washes seem to be really watered down and then gelled up with inert ingredients so you have to use more, and then buy more.
Why does bar soap leave scum?
Here is how soap scum happens: The acid dissolves the lime, then the calcium and magnesium ions become part of the water supply. When hard water mixes with dirt, body oils, and soap residue, the result is soap scum. If allowed to build up over time, the deposits can harden and become very difficult to remove.
