I save my slivers and use them when I make laundry soap.

I save my slivers of soap and put them in a quart canning jar. When I am ready to make laundy soap, I grate them and use them to make soap.

Haha, Awesome.
I grate mine into a batch of laundry soap.

And here I thought I was the only one cheap enough to piggy-back the sliver onto a new bar. I guess I’ve been prepping for a lot longer than I thought…

Cheap? No, that’s just good thinking. Only soap companies and FEMA would encourage you to throw away perfectly good soap. A penny saved is a penny earned.

I just save mine to remake into more bar soap. Get the 2 piece covered soap tray/carrier from the dollar store to use as a mold.

I so thought this was going in another direction from the title. :-)

Please elaborate on that train! (-;

Well lets just say I thought this was a article about survival in a prison camp type setting.

You can take the small bits of soap and put them in a knee high hose and use for hand washing when you go camping.

Waste not…Want not.

I broke down and bought one of those brush pot scrubbers that has a fat body for putting in soap bits, and a rubber top. You lift off the top to put in the soap and water, then depress it to squirt out soap goo from the bottom. I love it. Dollar General, my favorite place to shop.

I have been doing this all my adult life. Since DH and I use different soaps (medical reasons, he has to use medical soap due to sensitive skin) it is only mine that gets a cap. Never thought about it being strange or just frugal. Great post.

God bless, Linda Lou

By the time my long-lasting soaps get to be slivers, I’m tired of it and reach for a different scent; then I throw the sliver at the edge of my garden…deer and other critters don’t like human scents…or…give it to the Faeries ;)
