The Many Uses of Ivory

July 26, 2012

Ivory Soap

We had forgotten about all the fun a bar of soap could be, we had gotten use to body washes for their ease of use. We had also been using anti-bacterial soap for our hands too, which I recently learned are loaded with things I have never heard of and not so good for our kids. It can be hard to keep up with what products to trust, so I was glad to be reunited with a bar of Ivory Soap.

I recalled the clean smelling scent immediately and remembered how it makes a great mild body and facial cleanser. The kids have been having a ball with it in their baths and I love that I can easily teach them how to lather up to make sure they are clean. Don’t forget your toes kids and behind your ears. Did you know Ivory Soap can also act as a stain remover for our clothes? It works great on food stains, even ring around the collar, or you can just add an extra nice smelling chip directly to your wash. That’s right, Ivory likes to call them laundry flakes and you just chip off a little flake and add it directly to your wash cycle! I love it!

Have you heard about soap carving? I had no idea about this fun project that has been around for ages. I hope to try it with my kids when they are a little older. Ivory has a great illustration on how to carve a whale right on their facebook photo page here. I also learned a potato or orange peeler would make a great carving tool for kids instead of knives, and toothpicks work great for carving out little details!

The best part about Ivory Soap is its value, Ivory is one of the least expensive bars and body washes on a per oz basis that has been around since 1879. So, how do you use your Ivory Bar?

Disclosure: I received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster and Ivory as a participant in the Mom VoxBox campaign. Thanks Influenster and Ivory ;)
