Do you ever wonder what to do with those thin slimy soap pieces that are left of the end of a soap bar? My grandma had a very neat thing in her bathroom: a little net bag filled with all these little soap left-overs. I still remember her bag being orange with a white plastic cord and smelling heavenly from a mixture of different soap perfumes. Granny was a clever lady.
I tried to recreate her soap bag and found out two things: no more need for body scrub, the bag just does the job. And bye bye liquid soap, I just love the mousse my soap bag makes. Also you probably have all it takes to make this at home.

For the photo I used a bag which is like a net. If you take a finer bag, more like a mesh, it will be softer to your skin and still scrub off dead skin. You put the soaps in, close the bag and make a knot – only for the beauty of it. Now your soap bag is ready for use.
You could also give the soap a stroke with the hammer to smash it up a bit… ~Anna~
