Cake of soap recipe

This fun Reuse tip from one of our readers is a great way not to let all those annoying little end bits of soap go to waste.

Don’t throw away all your left-over bath soap: collect it instead.

When you have quite a quantity collected, soak it in water and when it has become “sludgy and slimy”, boil it into a thick paste.

Scoop the paste into a muffin pan – however, line the muffin pan with plastic first.

Then flatten it and let it cool.

Take the new cakes out of the pan and you have nice multi-coloured hand soap. You can also wrap it in plastic, tie it with a colourful ribbon and give it away as a gift.
