Seriously, this is a wonderful way to use up those little slivers of bar soap that have a tendency to multiply in the shower! You know, the bits and pieces that clog the drain and hide close to the bathmat?
This article from the Farmer's Almanac is a great way to put all those little orphan bits and pieces to good use! If you have kids, let them help with this project! One way to get them to wash their hands without them being aware they are doing it!
Oatmeal Soap Recipe
If you have leftover soap slivers in the bathtub or sink, you can recycle them into this yummy new soap! Oatmeal has proven moisturizing benefits.
Gather these ingredients: 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup small soap pieces, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil, 1 tablespoon water
Put the soap slivers in a plastic bag and pound them into small chunks.
Put chunks in a blender, add the oatmeal and pulse until grainy.
Pour into a bowl and add the oil and water.
Mix with your hands, removing any remaining bigger chunks of soap. Shape the mixture into a ball and let sit until hard, about two hours.
Be sure to wash the blender thoroughly to remove the soap residue.
One thing about the Almanac, you can always find the most interesting stuff in there! I just love this book, but you already knew that...right?
OK, who is ready for some fresh coffee? We can have it on the patio this morning!
