Soap Slivers



Hate to throw away small slivers of bath soap? Try saving the pieces in an old pair of nylons or knee highs, clean ones. When you have several saved tie a knot in the nylons so the soap won't fall out. Use it in the shower like a loofa.

    I did basically the same thing, but with a little more work.

    I bought a package of wash cloths at a dollar store. I cut them in half, and folded them once so they are 1/4 the size of a whole wash cloth. I sewed velcro on two ends that would fit together, then folded them inside out and stitched up the open sides. When you turn them right-side out, you have a pouch for soap slivers that opens and closes with the velcro. You can hand-stitch a plastic ring to one corner so you can hang it on a hook (Attach a self-stick hook beside the tub or on the shower wall.) I made several. Once all the soap is used up, I throw one in the washer and get out another. It even works with an entire cake of soap (if not too big) or one that has worn away a bit with use ---and still has room to add a few leftover slivers from others. - by STORMY724
  • I like this. I do the same. Only, I had gotten a soap pump with beads from a magazine, placed the soap pieces in them, add water, shake it up and you have hand soap. - by SUCCESS68
  • Yep I have done this. Works great! - by SAPPHIRETYGER
