1. soap
A block of soap appeared as a clue object three times in the first two seasons of Knightmare.
 [Related Image] Team 2 of Series 1 were given the hint "those that incur foul language may have to wash the mouth out", indicating that they should take the soap. Unfortunately they didn't bother to pick up anything else, leading to their swift demise at the hands of Lillith, who required something with which to comb her hair.
 [Related Image] A few episodes later, the purpose of the soap was revealed when Team 6 of Series 1 also found it in the Level 1 clue room. Granitas told them to "keep the soap for your escape", and when dungeoneer Richard was swallowed by a monster, Treguard said they must use something to upset its stomach. Rubbing a little soap on the floor soon did the trick.
 [Related Image] On the third occasion, the soap was a red herring. Team 5 of Series 2 discovered it in the Level 2 clue room, along with a gauntlet and a scroll. The Oracle of Confusion's ramblings included the advice: "Soap will cleanse, but not the spirit. Accept the challenge. Take the word but do not read it." The team failed to realise they should pick up the gauntlet, and took the mention of soap to mean they needed it - a mistake that was, naturally, fatal.

Team 8 of Series 3 found Motley attempting to have his yearly bath in an empty pool. He complained that he'd gone to the effort of borrowing some "nice smelly soap" from Mellisandre, only to find that someone had pulled the plug out.

The ever-observant Barry Thorne (Team 7 of Series 7) noticed some bars of soap on Rothberry the apothecary's stall.

A bar of soap appears as an unneeded Level 2 clue object in Can You Beat The Challenge. In the gamebook section of The Labyrinths of Fear, Merlin lights a lantern by muttering something about "a car and a bar of soap".
