Item #: SCP-1188

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Because of the nature of SCP-1188, no containment procedures beyond a simple storage locker are required. The key is held by the supervising researcher. SCP-1188 is presently being housed in Site ██.

Description: SCP-1188 is a bar of white hand soap with no identifying markings. It has dimensions 2.5cm x 5cm x 15cm with bevelled edges measuring 0.5cm. It is Lilac scented. Continued usage does not seem to wear on the object. The item has a PH of 9, which is appropriate for hand soap.

SCP-1188's anomalous properties are triggered upon use of the soap to clean an organism. The organism being cleaned with SCP-1188 becomes increasingly disgusting to the user. This perceived filthiness quickly spreads to all organisms encountered by the user, accompanied with a desire to cleanse it all.

Removing SCP-1188 from the subject within the first minute has shown no permanent damage, though a temporary disgust does remain. Removing SCP-1188 from the subject after two minutes causes severe panic and anger, and permanently leaves the subject with feelings of impurity, regret, and fear of uncleanliness.
