Get ready for everyone to say Millennials ruined bar soap


Hey, remember that time a study said Millennials were too lazy to eat cereal for breakfast?

Get ready for another one of those stories.

Research from Mintel claims 60 percent of 18-24-year-olds think bar soap is germ-covered after you use it. About 48 percent of the whole U.S. thinks the same way. 

The study claims bar soap's popularity overall is in decline, thanks to the rise of body wash.

But we just KNOW this will be another "Millennial outrage" piece.

At least Millennials are prepared this time around.

That's pretty much our reaction.

So what soap do you use, anyway?

But it's OK. We found the person responsible.

And we did find one bar soap defender.
