Introduction: Unlatherable Soap Prank

Picture of Unlatherable Soap Prank

This is one of the simplest yet most frustrating pranks I've ever done. The victim will become more and more agitated as the soap stubbornly refuses to lather up. And, best of all, you can prank a large amount of people with very little effort. Just leave the bar of soap beside the bathroom sink; whenever someone goes to wash their hands, you've pranked another person.

Thanks to everyone who voted for me in the April Fools Contest!

I would love to do this but we only use liquid soap. I wonder if I can swap out a friends bar without them noticing?

M3G (author)cracked footed troll2015-08-28

I'm sure you can, good luck!

I thinks this would be even more confusing if you coated a partially used bar of soap. " What? I just showered with this bar yesterday morning!"

And of course if you put it in the shower, they would have to get out to get another bar.

M3G (author)heathbar642014-04-27

Hehehe, I like the way you think!

totalycoolstuff LOL (author)2014-04-10

Will you be able to use the soap afterwards?

M3G (author)tasn10032014-04-02

Yep, all you have to do is scrape off the layer of nail polish.
