It seems like bars of soap are going the way of the dodo. Most of us prefer to use pump soaps near the sink, and body wash in the shower. But before you quit buying those soap-bar multipacks, consider all the different ways you can use those bars of soap in your home. Some of these handy uses might just surprise you!
1. Keep Critters Out of the Garden
If you have deer that tend to roam your neighborhood, you know they’ll eat your garden before you have a chance to get a harvest or enjoy your flowers. Rabbits and other fuzzy critters are no less damaging. But with a bar of Irish Spring soap, you can make a garden sachet that repels them. Cut the bar into cubes and wrap them in cloth. Staple those little soap packets onto stakes and place them around your garden.
