5 ways to reuse soap


How to reuse leftover soap:

I dedicate this entry to my great-grandmother Angela, although she left us a long time ago, she was without a doubt the greenest person I’ve met, and I don’t think she knew the term, but she was from a time when everything was used and if he knew that it was the art to enjoy absolutely everything, including soap.

The panty method

Tights, as we say today, used to be called can-can stockings, or just stockings, they have a thousand uses, they serve many things, what my great-grandmother did was to preferably cut the end so that a little bag remained, and there each time there was some I kept a little soap in the bag, when it was full I tied the upper part and ready for the shower, I already had my soap, it’s spectacular, the feeling is pleasant and the remains of soap on the pantyhose make a lot of foam, a very good option.

It’s a way to recycle old soap, we put all the leftover pieces in a hot pan with a few tablespoons of water and give it until it’s all melted, then we pour the melted soap into a kind of mold and let it cool, ready, we have soap again.
