Put Bar Of Soap In Bed


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

This is supposed to get rid of leg cramps at night. I haven't tried it yet but the person who told me about it swears by it. Put a bar of soap like Irish Spring or Dial and it's supposed to prevent cramps. Weirder things have happened so try it out.

    I have heard this remedy from multiple sources but never tried it myself.

My mother swears by this, she even brings a bar of soap with her when she comes to stay at my house. LOL...Like I don't have soap here.

    I have done this and it did work. I put it under my bottom sheet. Unfortunately, my dog tried to dig it up, through the bedspread!!

    I have done this for the last 3-4 years and it's the only thing that STOPPED my horrible night time leg cramps. I take a bar of soap with me on vacations, to hotels bed and breakfasts, as well as a cruise. Believe me it does work.

    Oh my stars~I love hearing somebody else say this! I had a gal in the salon for a few years who always said she slept with a bar of Dial soap between her knees to keep pain from setting in, or getting worse. It was one of those ..."okay...." moments unsure if it was her age, or just cheezy info. Might have to try this now...just to see if it works! Thanks so much.
