Persuasive Essay Topics of Today and Yesterday: Save Your Soap and Save the Soapless Peoples Of The World

Persuasive Essay Topics of Today and Yesterday is living proof that there really is nothing new under the sun. The earth changes. Man does not. Witness the modern and strange concept of recycling soap to save the planet one bar at a time.

The World of the Now

There is an organization called Clean The World. You can catch their called Their stated purpose is to recycle used soap bars. Clean the World says they are the very first high speed soap recycler, and guarantee that their used soap is as safe as it come.

The organization collects used soap and shampoo mostly from hotels and motels all over the United States. Some well recognized chains participate. They use two processes to reprocess the suds. The first is Re-batching and the second is Sterilization.

Soap that pretty well used up is cooked (Re-batched) and reprocessed into two ounce soap bars. Soap that is only slightly used is Sterilized by soaking in a special solution in a pressure cooker. Afterwards the sterilized soap is tested for pH levels and repackaged. In the end Clean the World hired the Tri-Tech Laboratories, a Florida State testing facility to take a look. They certified the soap completely free of all pathogens.

The products of Clean The World are distributed worldwide.

The World of the Then

Along about October 1916 there came a story in the now defunct Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger about saving soap. So, it looks like soap saving isn't such a new idea. The walking, talking, breathing residents of that time spent time thinking about used up soap bars too. Let's look back...

Research material for this portion was plundered from the very defunct Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger October 16, 1916. The original text has been rewritten, but the essence remains.

Saving in Soap

Soap is such a small item, apparently representing only a few cents' cost, that it hardly seems possible that the leakage on this item alone would run into many dollars during the year in the average household. Here Is a list of common wastes of soap. Do they occur In your household?

First-- leaving a bar of soap in the bottom of a dishpan or scrub bucket while using these utensils. This does not soften
the water any more than it needs, and the same effect can be obtained by beating the soap in the soap-shaker half a dozen times, and then laying it away. Permitting a bar of soap to remain in the water not only wastes that much soap, but it softens the soap so much that it can be used only a short time thereafter.

Second --Buying soap in small quantities--two or three cakes at a time. Soap takes up little room, and, as it is regularly used every day, it pays to buy two or three dozen cakes at a time and keep them stored in a cool place. You are sure to save a few cents on such purchasing, and the total saving will mount up astonishingly.

Third-- Paying for soap according to size, not weight. It Is easy to judge which soap is tho best value, and for ordinary house hold purposes the best is a cake of small size so that it can be held in the hand conveniently-- but fairly heavy. The heavier the cake the longer it will last.

Fourth-- Using scented soaps. Scented and colored soaps are generally more expensive and usually they have little value. Tar soap is the possible exception, as it's color and cent are natural and not harmful. Green soap, too, especially in liquid form is desirable for the bathroom, as it is antiseptic and should be used frequently for the hands.

Fifth-- Using one kind of soap, or possibly two kinds, for all household purposes. As there are so many uses in the household for soap, and as these uses differ widely, it is easy to see where there is waste if only one or two kinds of soap are used. For example, some soaps being impregnated with turpentine or naphtha, are highly desirable for the cleansing of clothes. But naturally, they cost more than ordinary soap, and therefore should not be used except for their one special purpose. Such soaps should never be used on the skin.
