Weird Uses For Soap

You might really want to stock up when you learn just how versatile they really are. SO here are some weird uses for your bar soap.

Weird Uses For Soap: Key Points

  • Bar Soap is a lot more handy than liquid soap.
  • It is the key to getting unwanted jewelry off of your hands.
  • Bar soap can help aid you from pests and bad odors.
  • Could help you performing everyday chores.

MAKE SOAP SACHETS TO KEEP DEER AND OTHER WILDLIFE OUT OF YOUR GARDEN

If you live in an area where a lot of deer roam, we don’t have to tell you how quickly they can make a meal out of your garden. Of course, rabbits and other wildlife can do a lot of damage too.

You could buy some type of rabbit or deer deterrent at your local home and garden store. However most are expensive, filled with chemicals, and have to be applied after each rain shower, or even heavy dew.

Why do that when you can use a bar of Capulet Soaps? It’s much cheaper and it will keep those critters at bay.

All you have to do is cut a bar up into cubes and then wrap those cubes in some scraps of cloth. Now, staple them onto stakes and place the stakes strategically throughout your garden.

You may want to scatter a few tiny pieces of soap across the ground too. Often, it works for an entire season.

PREVENT SOOT IN YOUR CAST IRON POT WHEN COOKING ON AN OPEN FLAME

You know those wonderful camp cookouts you’ve enjoyed, perhaps cooking up a big pot of stew?

While the results can be mouth-watering, the soot that develops on the bottom of the pot can be tough if not impossible to clean off.

To prevent that problem in the first place, simply rub a bar of soap over the bottom of the pot before setting it over the open flame. The soap helps to make cleanup infinitely easier as it prevents soot from accumulating in the first place.

AVOID GETTING DIRT UNDER YOUR FINGERNAILS

While gardening can be incredibly rewarding,. But when you finish you probably end up with a ton of dirt under your fingernails.

It somehow seems to happen even if you wear gloves, right?

You probably had no idea about this one, but a good way to avoid all of that grime, and having to try and scrub it out later. Simply scrape your fingernails over a bar of soap to collect slivers underneath them before going out and playing the dirt.

It will prevent that dirt from caking up under your nails, and it will easily wash off.

Weird Uses for Soap: KEEP INSECTS OFF YOUR PLANTS

You can also use soap to keep bugs from eating up your plants.

Just add a slice of soap to a container of water and mix until sudsy. Place the solution into a spray bottle and then spray the underside of your plant leaves.

MAKE SMELLY SHOES SMELL NICE AGAIN

If you’ve got smelly shoes, whether they’re tennis shoes, boots, sneakers or what have you. All you have to do is place a wrapped bar of soap in them and leave it there overnight.

By morning, that bad smell will be gone, instead, they’ll have a nice, fresh aroma. So if you think your friend is weird for using bar soap in their shoes. Now you know their intentions.

Weird Uses for Soap: RELIEVE THE ITCH OF BUG BITES


If you’ve been bit, especially more than a few times, it can be downright miserable, especially when you’re trying to sleep, but a bar of soap can come to your rescue again.

Simply rub the dry bar on your skin, thoroughly covering the area. That’s all there is to it! The relief from this method is super fast and works faster than you can mix up other household remedies. If you want to go all out, save a deodorant applicator and push remaining bits of soap inside. Not only can you use it in the shower, but it’s an easy way to apply for bites if you seem to be a mosquito magnet like us.

REMOVE STUBBORN STAINS FROM CLOTHING

You can remove extremely stubborn stains from clothing by using a bar of soap too. Blood stains respond especially well to pretreating with bar soap.

All you have to do is rub the bar of soap across it. First rinse out the item, you can use cool water, and then rub with the soap; rinse and repeat if necessary.

This will even work for those especially challenging grass and dirt stains that can get on baseball or other sports uniforms – even stains that won’t come out with bleach.

Simply wet the soap, rub it in for a few seconds and, voila! The stain is gone.

While any brand will work on these and other serious stains like chocolate and berries.

If the Soap Remedy does not work out for your tough stain you can take a look at some other remedies here.

GET RID OF FLEAS IN YOUR HOME

That soap water has lots of uses, including eliminating fleas. Add a slice of soap to a bowl of water and place it under a light. You may want to use a number of bowls of soapy water, placing them in areas of your home where fleas are especially rampant.

This will attract fleas to the water, and they’ll drown. For more step-by step information on how to create these flea traps you can find that here.

Weird Uses for Soap: MAKE SEWING EASIER


While it can be tough to get a needle to go through some types of fabrics, you can make it easier by sticking the needle into soap before using it to sew.

The soap that remains on the needle helps it to pass through fabric easier. The soap fills any little scratches so the does not catch on the fabric as it passes through.

FIX A ZIPPER


Like graphite, bar soap can also act as a lubricant and loosen up the tension between the teeth and zipper pull to get things moving again.

Just rub a dry bar of soap on both sides of the teeth, allowing the substance to cover the affected area and make it slippery. Then, give the handle a tug until it comes loose.

You can go back over the grooves with a rag or tissue to clean up any shreds of soap left behind if it’s bothering you, but there’s a secret bonus to leaving it there: It can act as a protectant and prevent the zipper from rusting over time.

USE IT TO MARK A HEM


While most people use marking chalk to mark the line for a hem to sew clothing together, it can be hard to wash out. Instead, use a sliver of a bar of soap to draw the line for the hem, it washes out easily.

LOOSEN A RING THAT’S TOO TIGHT


It can be so frustrating, and sometimes painful when a ring gets so tight that you can’t take it off. Even when it went on easily, if hot weather or something else causes it to swell, even only a tiny bit, it can make removing it seem impossible.

The next time that happens, rub soap over your finger and then wash it – the ring will slide right off.
