5 Things To Do with Soap
Think soap is just for cleaning grubby fingers? Here are five interesting ways to use soap around the house.
A bar of soap can be handy in more places than just the bathroom.
1. Prevent Cast Iron Marks
Nip camping clean-up blues in the bud by rubbing the bottom of your cast iron cookware with a bar of soap before cooking with it over a sooty open flame. You’ll be amazed that there are no black cooking marks afterwards.
2. Deodorize Your Car
Place a little piece of your favourite scented soap in a mesh bag and hang it from your rear-view mirror.
3. Mark a Hem
A thin sliver of soap, like the ones left when a bar is just about finished works well for marking a hem.
4. Keep Stored Clothes Fresh
Pack a bar of your favourite scented soap when you store clothes or luggage. It will keep your clothes smelling fresh until next season and prevent musty odours.
5. Loosen Stuck Zippers
If a zipper gets stuck, rub it loose with a bar of soap along the zipper’s teeth. The lubrication will get it moving.
