making bath soap last
I was reminded as I unwrapped the newly bought bars of Dial bath soap to remind everyone how to make bath bars last. Unlike Dial from 50 years ago, they now wrap the Dial bars in a plastic wrapper. Therefore, the bar is moist to the touch. That means it will dissolve much, much faster. They used to wrap the bars in loosely sealed paper, and so the bars dried out and took longer to melt into water and washcloths. So unwrap your soap bars and stick them in your underwear and other dresser drawers and your linen closet. Everything will smell so fresh, but the bars will have a chance to harden and will last so much longer.
