All-natural Lemon Myrtle Fragrances soap

Have you ever wondered what else you can do with your leftover soaps that are just sitting in your soap dish? 

We've got some tips and tricks that will save you money & avoid throwing them away!! Find some new uses for those tiny leftover soaps, especially if you're using All-natural Lemon Myrtle Fragrances soaps.

1. Make a new soap out from your old scraps!

Instead of throwing away your old soap scraps, you can turn them into a new soap bar? YES, it's possible! Just break the leftover slivers that you've saved up over time into small pieces, and put them into a saucepan. Fill it with water, then melt the scraps over a medium heat until they start to stick together.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Make sure that you stir the mixture as often as possible to prevent it from boiling. 

Strain the soap and mix them together in a bowl. Get some containers or moulds so you can shape your new soap bars. After thoroughly combining your soap mixture into the moulders/containers, leave them in the fridge overnight. In the morning, remove them from the moulds and voila - your new soap bars are ready!

 2. Turn them into laundry detergent!

But how? Simple! Here's how:

  • Place your soap scraps in a food processor and grind them until they become powdery. 
  • Put the powder in a large bowl, then add in a washing soda - equivalent to double the amount of soap powder and the amount of borax. 
  • Mix together evenly and yaaay! You can use two tbsp's of this soap powder in your next load of washing!

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:Another term for washing soda is sodium carbonate.

3. Prefer a liquid detergent?

Sure, no problem! Put your soap scraps into a 500ml jar and fill with water. Keep adding the "lasts" to the jar and when the soap has dissolved and is thickened, use in place of liquid laundry detergent - how amazing is that?!


But wait ... there's more!

Did you know that Lemon Myrtle Fragrances soap is also an efficient and effective way to keep your linen closet smelling good and reduce (or eliminate!) insects? YAAY!!! Buy your Lemon Myrtle Fragrances soap in bulk (to save more $$$), place it in the linen closet between your sheets, towels and pillow cases and not only do they smell amazing, the soap also dries even more, so it will last longer when you're lathering up! 

Here's how you can buy in bulk!
