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.

When your soap bar has worn down to a little sliver, press it to the next bar of soap and "glue" them together with a bit of water. Once it dries, the soaps will be fused into one bar, and you don't waste anything! Works even with two different kinds of soap bar.
I found that putting a bar of soap, between my sheet and mattress, at the foot of the bed helps me to relax my legs when they start twitching. All that I do, is, touch the soap with my foot. This automatically stops the restlessness. I would recommend it.
It does not matter the brand of soap you use. I have had a bar of soap in my bed for 5 years now and when I travel I bring one with me just so that I can have a great sleep.
