Making Soap on a Rope

September 18, 2009

Making Soap on a Rope, Heart Shaped Soap on a RopeAfter having both neck and back surgery I was not able to pick things up from the floor if I dropped them. I returned from the hospital, but when contemplating taking a shower (as I could not get in and out of the bathtub), I was concerned about dropping the bar of soap and having no way to retrieve it without an assistant. I came up with the idea of a "mock" soap on a rope.

I would be able to hold on to the soap "rope" by inserting a bar into a knee high nylon stocking and tying a slipknot in the open end to make a loop. Then I could slip it over my hand, therefore not able to drop the soap, as well as ease in replacing the next bar of soap by simply untying the slipknot.

With the nylon stocking it also works as a great way to sluff off the dead skin and gives a soothing revitalizing massage all while taking your shower. Hangs nicely and dries in between showers there for no soggy slimy wasted bar soap. This could also work great for children as well!

Why not just buy the soap on a rope?

Put a tablespoon of water in a microwave proof dish along with a large bar of soap. Heat on high for one minute, check to see if it is softening, keep heating, checking every 30 seconds until it is pliable.

Remove from the microwave, be careful it will be hot, just as soon as you can handle it, mold it around your piece of rope and let dry.
