Is there a method to use the small leftover bars of Ivory soap and make big bars from it?

RE: Leftover bars of Ivory soap

The best and easiest way to use up bars of soap is to attach it to a "new" bar of soap.

It depends on the shape of the bars youre trying to attach together; the more flat the bars are the easier it is to have them adhere together.

If youre asking about rebatching the soap pieces, then it is a lot of work and not worth the extra work.

Something else that some people do, is to put the pieces in muslin bags, and use them like a soap/wash cloth combo.

I second that. I put my leftover soap pieces in a sisal bag, so I can use them as an exfoliant.
