He Microwaves Leftover Bits Of Soap Into BarsLeftover pieces of soap from your bathroom or shower can be converted into bars, by simply placing them in a divided plastic tray and then melting them in your microwave oven, says Mike Paul of Clearwater, Fla.
He starts with a microwavable plastic tray that’s divided into sections – or the bottoms cut off water bottles. He fills them with leftover bits of soap, and places them in the microwave for 2 min. until the soap has melted. He lets the containers cool for about an hour and then pops the bars out.
“It’s a simple idea but it saves quite a bit of money,” says Paul. “The soap bars that you get don’t look as fancy as new soap bars, but I’m a carpenter and anything I can grab to get clean is all I need. I came up with the idea because there are 4 people in our family so we always have a lot of leftover soap.”
