6 Reason to use a Crochet Soap Saver Crochet Bag:
- More and more research is coming out that plastic bathroom items are not good for our skin. Dermatologists say get rid of the plastics.
2. A crochet soap bag will extend the life of the soap bar.
3. Are you tired of the goop that collects in your soap dish? It’s quite gross because your soap is sitting in a puddle of skin filth and water, ew.
4. Extend the life of your soap! Especially if you purchase handmade soaps, you’re going to want to get the most out of them. Using less soap or shampoo is good, so in this case, less is more.
5. Exfoliation! As your soap lathers, it will add additional exfoliation for your skin, a nice bonus.
6. Not sure what to do with that small amount of soap before trading up to a new bar? Take it out, toss your crochet soap bag into the washing machine, and then pop the old small amount of soap with a new one, and they will meld together. Isn’t less waste nice?

Weave the i-cord through the second to top row. Place both ends through the optional bead. Tied the ends in a knot together to prevent the bead from coming off. Weave in any ends and enjoy!
