Thrifty Nylon Soap Saver


From the late 1800’s to the early 1930’s, homes across the country used wire basket devices to recycle old pieces of soap that would usually be thrown out.  With people worried about the environment and trying to reduce waste, our soap savers may not be made of wire like their predecessors, but they are the perfect product.  Just fill the brightly colored netting with small unused pieces of soap. Use it in the shower as you would a sponge; hold it under the faucet and rub it and you’ll create a delightful sudsy lather. For baths, hold it under the water and swish it around, while filling the sink or tub.  Use the soapy water to wash hands, face and body.  A new old way to reuse, recycle and reclaim your small unusable pieces of soap!

For laundry use, place a bar of Aunt Ida’s Laundry Soap into soap saver and hold under running water, while machine fills up.  Swish in tub for additional suds.

If you like to recycle and reuse, or get the most ‘bang for your buck’, you need a thrifty nylon soap saver! Designed to be used over and over again, these soap savers will not only prolong the time you get from each bar of soap but also, they themselves will last for years!

With a draw string at one end, these soap savers are designed for you to reclaim your scrap pieces of soap by adding them into the ‘tube’. At first, you will want to collect as many of your soap scraps as possible, as the more scraps of soap in the ‘tube’, the more lather you will get when you use it. Once you have a sufficient amount of soap pieces, you can begin using it.

Great for showers or baths. In the shower, run water over your soap saver and rub all over your body. The texture of the nylon material acts as a gentle exfoliant. In the bath, just swish the soap saver under water and you’ll create soapy bubble bath!

Each nylon soap saver is approximately 6.50 inches long. Thrifty soap savers come in an array of colors. If you have a specific color in mind, note it on the order form and we will do our best to accommodate you.
