Bathroom Humor

November 21st, 2006 at 06:27 am

*Warning* This really does qualify as potty humor:

Now if I haven't grossed out your morning, I wanted to hear some people's ideas on some savings in the bathroom. One concept that I could never really grasp was what to do with leftover soap slivers. Sure, the most common thought is to mush them all together into back into a gigantic blob, but that has never worked for me- the big blob simply starts disintegrating back into the individual chunks when I proceed to scrub myself.

I have thrown all the chunks into a soap dish and just kept adding water to it, but this is apparantly unsightly for guests and family. Another alternative is to throw slivers into a bottle, add water, shake the heck out of it, and use this as sort of liquid soap.

Any other ideas? Or do people find the price of liquid soap is just as cost-effective as chunka chunka bar soap?

    i only use liquid soap in the shower b/c of my skin, but you might want to look into a soap saver. they make mesh 'bags' (made from the same stuff as shower poofs) to put soap scraps in. some health/natural stores sell hemp or loofa bags/pockets for using soap slivers, too.

    The last few washes are tedious, but I just continue to use the slivers until they are all gone. (However, my housemates open a new bar long before Ive used up that sliver.)

    As a regular reader of Gizmodo, um yeah, I skipped that entry right away. Big Grin

    The wife and I use liquid soap because of the aforementioned quandry!Smile

    I split a sponge and put the sliver inside it. I sewed a cord on one end and a button and loop on the end with the slit. I hang it over the outside faucet and use it to wash my hands after gardening.

    wow, there are people still use bar soap nowadays!? :-p i'd definitely recommend liquid soap. putting leftover soap in water and shake doesn't exactly make liquid soap...

    yeah, no kidding, jersey is crazily expensive to live in! i'm thinking about moving a nearby town so that i can take train to work.

    my aunt would crochet these little drawstring bags, the slivers would fit inside and as kids, we used them in the shower.
