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...

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
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.
