Soap Savers Are Great For Organic Soaps

Recently I visited an old traditional family soap making business in Corfu, Greece for a tour.

The Patounis Soap Works has been making soap for over a hundred years, using traditional methods.

They use locally sourced olive products to create three distinct types of soap, olive oil soap, green olive soap, and olive palm soap.

Greek olive oil soap

Long-lasting this soap obviously needed a soap saver!

The soaps are made using only naturally occurring oils, soda, sea salt and water.

The tour showed us the original vats used to make the soap and the newer models used today.

Plus how the soap is molded and cut, then stored for a very long time before being packaged.

Soap sacks make great gifts

If you want to make a gift for a friend or neighbor or perhaps you make your own soaps to sell then adding a soap sack can be a nice little touch.

Easy to make from yarn scraps in your stash both of these patterns are really easy and quick to make.

I recommend using cotton as this will be durable and great for scrubbing!
