I believe one columnist had a reader who suggested collecting all the mostly used-up bars of soap in the house, wadding them into a ball and tying them in the amputated foot from an old pair of nylons. Run the “package” under water, and voilà, it’s bath time! Loofah away. I’m going to throw up now. OK, I’m back. Yikes, lady! Just pop for another bar of soap.
That one is just plain old gross.
Here is a better tip for using old soap.
Don't throw away bar soap that dissolves into those little pieces. Save them and add water, then slowly melt them down on the stove and use as liquid soap. Or melt them down without water and pour into greased jar lids or anything you want to use for the a mold and you have new bars of soap!
Another tip that one reader sent me was to use a tissue as toilet paper later on. Yikes! Sheryl Crowe might like that one, but never in my household.
One that I don't find too bad is reusing the the small plastic baggies or the gallon size ones. Unless I am putting in produce or meat, I like to reuse them. My husband thinks I am nuts.
Any tips out there that you said No way! That's gross or just plain old disgusting.
