Soap on a rope was first introduced in the 1940s, but they're now making a comeback (and rightfully so). Seeing rope on your soap does take getting used to but once you find out its benefits, you'll soon realise that it's a stroke of genius.
Don’t you just hate it when a soap bar slides out of your fingers and you have to bend over to pick it up from the wet bathroom floor? Not anymore. With soap on a rope, you just have to loop it around your wrist so it stays secure while you're lathering away.
Did you know that every year, about 235,000 people over 15 years old are rushed to the emergency room because of bathroom accidents? Worse, 14% of them end up being hospitalised. This makes soap on a rope ideal for anyone with a mobility problem. Because you can secure the soap to your wrist, you no longer have to worry about having to bend and pick up a fallen soap from the dangerous and slippery bathroom floor.
Bar soap lasts around four to six weeks but keeping it dry in between washes lengthens this even more. So after your refreshing bath, just hang your soap on a rope on a hook immediately to keep it dry.
A long-lasting soap bar means savings because you buy less soap in the long run. Plus, your trips to the grocery store are also reduced. Tiny changes but they add up.
Hanging the soap on a rope means there’d be no gunk in the soap dish. You may not even need a soap dish at all! That means less time and resources spent on cleaning the bathroom and on cleaning products. Best of all, you have more time doing what you love.
