Thought for Thursday ~ Leftover Soap
Ever wonder what to do with those little leftover slivers or pieces of soap? Well, before you throw them away next time, consider these creative uses instead:
Cut the bottom foot off a pair of pantihose you plan to discard (example, a pair that has a run in the nylon.) Place a few soap slivers in the nylon, then tie it onto an outside faucet/spicket. Now you'll have a quick "soap" dispenser at hand for easy clean-up after gardening or other outdoor activities.
Save your soap slivers and pieces in a tupperware container. When you have a bunch, add a little water to them to get the pieces moist, then shape into little balls. Allow a few hours drying time, and viola!-- you'll have new soaps!
If you're handy with needles & threads, take two washcloths and stitch them together in purse-like fashion with a drawstring at the top. Collect your soap slivers and broken pieces in this pouch. When it's half full, tighten the drawstrings and you'll have a nifty reusable soft-filled cleaning cloth.
On the same note, you can use a bath mitt or mitten (you'll find them at the dollar stores and/or discount stores) and simply use a ribbon or rubber band to seal the opening.
