Made from sisal, a plant cultivated for fibre production, the soap bag is a great way to get the best lifespan out of your soap. It acts as a washcloth, you just put the soap in the bag, get it wet, and lather it up through the bag.
If you’re trying to cut down on the plastic in your life, this is a great way to ditch the shower gel. Get in the shower, and rub the soap (in the bag) directly on your skin, for a good circulation-boosting, exfoliating scrub. After use, just hang it up by the drawstring, with the soap still inside. The water will drain away, and your soap won’t get mushy from sitting in a puddle.
The bag measures 14cm x 10.5cm, comfortably accommodating my standard sized and the slightly larger bars.
