The OG soap was a Mesopotamian discovery used for all things clean – from cooking gear to textiles and even doctor's orders. Fast forward to the Middle Ages, where soap-making was like a VIP club, reserved for the elite and soap-smith ninjas.

The 13th century spilled the soap secrets, spreading that bubbly magic to the masses. The Middle East showed Europe some love, introducing those luxurious veggie-oil soaps. And oh, the Romans! They had a thing for urine in their soap, but hey, they also saw the light of personal hygiene.

Fast forward through chemistry class, a dash of Industrial Revolution spice, and voila – soap for everyone! Major discoveries made the soap ingredients wallet-friendly, and the 19th century brought soap to the masses. From high society to your morning shower – soap's the real MVP of clean.

So there you have it, soap lovers! From ancient secrets to modern showers, soap's journey has been a bubbly adventure. Now, who's ready to lather up and make history one squeaky-clean step at a time? 🛁🚿
