So what do you do with that last sliver of bar soap that keeps falling through the slats in the shower soap holder? Do you toss it and just open up a new bar? Do you just let it lie on the shower floor and slowly dissolve and run down the drain? I never do. Here's why.
Whenever you have those little soap slivers put them in a jar with a little bit of water. Cover and let sit in the cabinet for a few days. Give it a good shake every day and you will see that the soap is slowly dissolving, kinda like it will in the shower when it sits in a pool of water. You may need to add a little bit of water if it gets too thick. The water is the dissolving agent here so add just enough to do the job, but not too much that it becomes runny. You are trying to get the consistency of liquid soap. When the soap has dissolved enough pour it off into your soap dispenser and use as you usually do. No waste and you get your every penny's worth from the soap.
Okay, so this isn't about cooking. I know, so don't write rude comments about how dumb I may be. Although it is not food related, it is related to the kitchen, since you are hopefully washing your hands every so often. Chef Cheapo- washing behind every ear and still saving you money.
