Use a BAR SOAP ROPE to dry out your bar soap between your showers or baths.
The BAR SOAP ROPE makes the soap easier to hold on to while bathing too. The ‘rope’ around the soap can also be used as a little scrubber or for lightly exfoliating your skin when you want to.
It’s easy to make a Bar Soap Rope with some light cord, string or yarn that is about 48 inches or 122 mm long.
A Bar Soap Rope made with a Prusik hitch knot will hold on to your bar soap quite nicely while you are using it. As the soap gets smaller just pull on the hitch a little bit to tighten it up again. If needed, a double wrap through the loop will help the hitch stay snug.
The Prusik knot or the Lark’s Head knot [see picture] can be used to make the Bar Soap Rope.
For my Bar Soap Rope most might prefer the Prusik hitch knot because the 4 wraps of the cord around the soap [or 6 wraps if you want to go big] makes the hitch even more scrubby, exfoliative and easier to hold onto. [Prusik knot/ Wikipedia]
One way to put a Prusik knot on a bar soap is wrap the loop two [or three] times around before running the ends of the cord through the loop. If needed, a double wrap through the loop will help the hitch stay snug – as noted for the Lark’s Head knot too. Yes, this tie the Prusik a little differently than the classic Prusik.
The Bar Soap Rope picture has the Lark’s Head knot because it’s a teeny bit easier than the Prusik knot to tie, because it is important to get lot of peeps to use the Bar Soap Rope ASAP. Bar Soap Roped help slow down the use of single use plastic bottles for shampoos and body washes.
A little metal S hanger can be hung on a towel rack, shower head or handlebar to hang your soap on. Easy to make with coat hanger wire.
Bar Soap on a Rope helps reduce plastic waste and the use of fossil fuels to make soap containers. Let's help keep the Earth cooler so we humans and critters can keep having fun.
Feel free to experiment with different kinds of cord for different tingly feels.
Have fun using a Bar Soap Rope to keep your bar of soap dry and firm for your bathing, showering or tubbing journey.
