plain ole Ivory Soap

So, what Works For Me This Wednesday? I despise dirty showers, and especially soap scum, and it is even worse in a fiberglass shower or tub. Hubby and I have gone round and round with this problem for 20 something years. He likes bar soap, I like anything that does not leave soap scum. Well, it must have been a divine thought, about a month ago, I remembered thinking that Ivory Soap didn’t leave soap scum. And it doesn’t! Easy clean shower! Now that works for me.

  9. Gotta love that Ivory! Good price too when you buy “bricks” of 12. I’ve never noticed the lack of scum…

    I use the slivers my husband won’t use anymore as “stain sticks” on the laundry. (He’s bar soap all the way too and when the bar gets to a certain small size he cannot manage it, it becomes “mine” for this purpose.)

    Another thing I’ve done — it’s still moist right out of the wrapper, so I unwrap a bar to let it harden up and cure a day or three before putting it out to use. It lasts longer if it’s dried out before getting all wet in a soap dish for use.

  10. stain sticks, very good idea!

and .. your thoughts?
