Oh, hello housequeers and other friends! It's spring!
Today, on the screen, you will be greeted by a simple, ecological fix for those tidbits of soap that linger on your soap dish far too long to be useful.
Who likes fancy/smelly soaps? housequeer!
oh my my, it’s one of my favorite things! Rosemary, peppermint, lavender, chamomile! All the soaps! Invigorating soaps make simple tasks, such as cleaning my ears, way more exciting, worthwhile, and satisfying. So, when you have those special little slivers of soap at the end of the bar…why is it so hard to throw it away?
Who has hoarding tendencies? housequeer!
Yet! It is certainly ecological to utilize all that you can when you can. So, somewhere out on mother google, long ago, I discovered a very crafty way of getting all you can out of those lovely soaps.
What you need:
A little fabric bag
Slivers of lovely soaps
Find a bag/fabric that’s thin and breathable so it won’t take too long to dry since you want to avoid moldy situations. What could work really well are those cheesecloth bags that are sold for diy tea mixing, or you could certainly take some cheesecloth or other thin fabric and stitch up a pouch with a drawstring if you are so inclined! I happened to find mine somewhere in my hoard. Gawd knows!
So, go on. Put your little slivers in, and lather up, lovelies!
Oh, on another note – you could even choose to keep your whole bar soap in a bag – it works up a great lather and also adds a little texturey scrub situation when you’re rubbing down…
Let me know what you think or if you have other solutions or tips. Also, tell me, what kind of soap are you using? I was inspired to write this up because I just finished my bar of olive oil lavender soap…and now, on to rosemary mint!
p.s. if you happen to use body wash instead of bar soap, please disregard this post...and then go out, buy some delightful soap, and then we'll talk.
