I bet it's safe to say that a majority of the population uses body wash over bar soap. Up until about a year ago I mainly used bar soap but made the switch to body wash because I was able to find it on sale and use coupons making it more affordable.
However, I have been finding that bar soap actually works out to be cheaper because it lasts longer and if you use a soap saver you get to use every last bit of it. No more little slivers being stuck to soap dishes or going in the trash. Add your bar of soap to the soap saver, close, wash, rinse it out and hang to dry. Thats all there is to it!
Now there are several places you can purchase these nifty little inventions or if you can crochet or knit you can make them yourself to save even more money. Why not make the change? It's better on the environment as there will be less plastic going into our landfills and it's better on your wallet.
