8 Ways to Use Bar Soap

Growing up you probably only thought about bar soap when it came to taking your daily shower or bath. You see bar soap is known mostly for its purpose to cleanse your body of the dirt and sweat accumulated throughout your day to day living. While bar soap is the perfect way to clean your body in the shower or tub, there are other purposes for bar soap and I am sharing those ideas with you today.

8 Ways to Use Bar Soap

Keep Paint Projects Clean

Rub a little bit of bar soap around the edges of surfaces that you’re about to paint. The bar soap will make sure any overrun of paint will be easily cleaned up when you’re finished painting.

Keep Your Nails Clean

Having long nails can be a chore, but with a little bar soap applied over your nails before going out to garden or do some dirty work will help keep the dirt from accumulating as much over your nails.

Make Liquid Soap

There are quite a few online recipe ideas for making liquid soap out of bar soap, so look them up and make your own liquid soap if bar soap isn’t your thing.

Get Zippers Moving

All too often we end up with a stiff zipper on our coat or jeans, bar soap rubbed across any zipper will help free it up and move freely.

 Coat Campfire Pans

Cooking over an open flame will ultimately lead to soot all over your pans. Use bar soap around the bottom of your pans before cooking over a fire, it will make the soot easier to clean off afterward.

Rid Home of Pests

Put a small cube of bar soap in your dresser and closets to ward off moths. You may also mix some bar soap with water in a spray bottle to use on plants so bugs don’t attack them.

Use for Shaving

Lather up that bar soap and apply to your body before shaving, use bar soap instead of shaving cream to get a clean shave in next time you need to shave your legs or face.

DIY Body Scrub

Peel down bar soap into chunks and mix with salt to create your own body scrub mixture. This will help to exfoliate your skin better than bar soap alone.
