Anyone know how to make a bar of soap out of those little bits of soap that are left behind?
We end up with little half chips of Dial soap in the shower that aren't big enough for anything. Does anyone have ideas how to make those into another bar?
um, squish them together? Haha. Although, it will fall apart pretty easily.
Save up all the half chips of soap you can and place them in a soap or candy mold. Next add a tiny bit of water to it and put it in a microwave oven for about 20 seconds.
You can stick the old soap to the new one by pressing them together with a few drops of water. Sticking together little bits won't work because they will fall apart in no time.
save all the rest part of it and when you have enough, blend it all together. maybe you can save it for get rid the blood spot on your clothes, its work.
I used to do this all the time. I had a special-purpose gizmo made to do just that, however, I've lost it.
Basically, put all the chips in a basin of hot water until they soften up, then squish them together into a ball.
I tried heating on the stove and microwaving both, but some ingredient in today's commercial soaps does not allow them to properly melt that way. Instead, they foamed, but did not get soft enough to "squish together" in spite of being hot enough to burn your hands.
We use Ivory soap in our house and when I have lots of little bits I grate them with my grater and then add them to a double boiler. Then I add water and heat them until it looks melted, then pour into molds and let cool.

* I didn't make the pic, I just put in the 'hubpages' bits.** I think it shows far too much sleep. Half of those sleeping slots could be used for more hubbing.
