Micaela, this is genius! I can't believe I hadn't thought of it. I've done this with crayons but never thought about soap.

Great idea!


Thanks Tracey! It's fun to do with the kids. My youngest boy helped grate the soap and stir the mixture.


Thanks Stephanie (GGGG)!!

This is a great idea on what to do with old soap scraps. Something I definitely want to try out! Thanks for the tips!


Glad you like the tip Mary! Thanks for stopping by!


Here's what I do with soap scraps: Take an old mesh scrubby-puff and cut the string that holds it together. Now you have a long tube of mesh. Cut a section about 2 feet long. Tie a knot in one end. Fill with soap scraps. Tie the other end to your showerhead or any towel bar or hook you may have in the shower. Wet your hands and rub them on the mesh. You'll get a nice lather!

When we stay in hotels, we bring home our used bits of soap and add them to our soap bag. We buy maybe 2 bars of soap a year. It really lasts a long time in the mesh bag because it isn't melting in a pool of water, and because the mesh helps it lather so you use less soap.


Great idea Becca! Thanks so much for sharing!


There's no such thing as too frugal. :-)

I do like 'Becca's idea, it seems so much easier. Okay, lazier . . . HAH!


BJ - sometimes the lazy way is the best way! :)

Great idea. We have just started stone carving as a hobby and our 2 year old and 4 year old want to do it too. We tried letting them carve soap the other day and it worked well. No we can recycle too. Thanks
