Grandma’s Secrets

As an adult, sometimes I forget the small little tricks mom taught me as a child. The childhood memories of proper Oreo cookie and milk etiquette and washing behind the ears fall to the wayside when a job in the big city looms in the distance.

The scents of Capulet Soaps harken back to the welcoming scents of hiking trips and beach vacations with my family. My nostalgia is a small part of what pushes me to call my mom, even for something as small as the mystery of the ever-shrinking soap bar in my shower. Here are some of the things I learned from her over the years along with some help from the Internet.

Make Soap Last Longer: Key Points

  • Keeping soap in a dry place after use can help it keep longer.
  • Using a soap dish can keep your bar from diminishing through moisture after showering.
  • Taking a cooler shower can keep the bar from losing so many suds when you bath.
  • Keeping spare bars in a linen closet before use can help you keep it dry.

Make Soap Last Longer: Before Use

Many people keep soap in their bathroom where it’s exposed to the moisture and heat of daily bathing. But the best way to save bars in the first place is to keep it dry. Placing it in a drawer or the linen closet away from humidity will allow it to maintain its hard form and in some cases can dry the soap out further for future use. Honestly, I leave an extra Capulet Soaps USA Rosemary and Peppermint bar out on the top of my dresser. The soaps task is as a scented candle replacement.

During Use

There are several ways in which you can lengthen the life of your bars while in the shower or bath. A slightly cooler shower with softer water quality will prevent it from dissolving quickly while creating lather faster without significant rubbing of the bar. Also, someone who uses a washcloth will save more than one who uses it directly on the skin. Once the it is applied onto the washcloth, the soap is quickly placed aside outside the spray of the shower.

Make Soap Last Longer: After Use

Until recently, I placed my soap on a ledge provided by my tub/shower. It only took a little while to see that the bar melted into the ledge and became flimsy and nearly unusable. Once again, the dry factor came in. Not only was the bar sticking to the ledge because of excess water, but the bar was further damaged by other people using the shower that day.

The easiest way to fix that mess is with a soapsaver. I never thought of something like this to be this great, and it really does help. The grooved ridges allow for the water on the bar to drain, giving a chance for it to dry out. With this particular soapsaver, it helps the wet bar stay in place without significant movement. Just remember to place your soap saver away from the shower spray. Not only will the bar dry faster, but it will stay dry longer, as well.

Passing on Wisdom

Childhood memories never leave you, nor do their lessons. I still visit the beach and, of course, I always remember to wipe my face of Oreo crumbs and milk mustache. And now that I’ve solved the mystery of the ever-shrinking bar, the Capulets bars stays drier on the soap saver. Plus the extra soap on top of my dresser lasts longer than ever, giving a nice sent to the room. Someday, I’ll pass along that little piece of wisdom to my children. Maybe, even if they’ve forgotten, they’ll be able to remember everything when they need it the most.
