Turning Soap Slivers Into a New Bar of Soap

What can I do with leftover pieces of soap? Can they be microwaved and reformed?

Fold a washcloth in half and sew two of the three sides. Toss you soap slivers in there and use it as a self soaping scrubbie!

Or just keep them in a plastic travel soap container until you have enough to melt and reform into a bar.

I've melted them in the microwave a few times, but it can be tricky. Line a small bowl with wax paper, put the slivers in it, and then microwave at 30% power for 15-second increments. When the soap is soft enough to stick together (the bar may be hot), squeeze it in your hands to make sure it's compact, and let it cool down. The bar will feel a little too hard to use the first few times you use it, but after that it will feel (and work) like a regular soap bar. Good luck!
