Elden Ring Player Discovers Disgusting Hygiene Fact

Elden Ring is a pretty gross game. You probably didn't need us to tell you that. In a world full of hand-spiders and bosses that look as though they wouldn't be able to so much as pronounce the word "bath", the Lands Between looks like it reeks.

But now, one fan has found an Easter egg that implies that Elden Ring is a stinkier game than we could ever have imagined. Yep, you better have packed your nose pegs.

Why Is The Elden Ring Soap Lore So Nasty?

Elden Ring Player Discovers Disgusting Hygiene Fact

As discovered by one Elden Ring player, it seems like your Tarnished's only solace from the smelly Lands Between might not be that hygienic after all. Shared to the Elden Ring subreddit, user u/pethris has revealed a detail that many players might've missed in the game that makes it seem far grubbier than before.

 

The post points out that in Elden Ring, players can only acquire soap from Siofra and Ainsel, with the cookbook you need to make it for yourself being sold by a merchant in the latter village.

Most disturbingly, the melted mushrooms that make the soap can only be found underground, implying that the soap itself - and the concept of soap entirely - is exclusive to the underground portions of the game. If this is the case, it means that nobody living above ground actually knows what soap is. Pass the bucket.

How Do you Make Elden Ring Soap?

All you need to make Elden Ring's Soap for yourself in-game is to gather some melted mushrooms and make sure that you've bagged the cookbook from the correct merchant in Siofra. Then, you should be good to go with your own Lush franchise. The soap itself will help to cleanse the Tarnished of any accumulations that they may have - so make sure to gather a few to give yourself a little stash.

This soap lore has somehow made Elden Ring seem even dingier than before, so it might be an idea to take up the challenge of introducing the surface world to washing once you've beaten the Elden Lord. Trust us, you'd be doing us all a favour and it will leave those awkward dinner parties smelling sweeter than before.
