    Has anyone had any luck salvaging the scraps of bars of soap and re-making them into a new usable bar? Yeah, I'm cheap! But don't tell anyone.

    Guess I have "cheap" blood flowing in my veins too.

    When the bar gets very small I will break out the new bar of soap and use it during bathing. Then before leaving the shower I'll take the old bar and lay it on the new bar, then slide it back and forth for a few seconds creating a little lather between the bars. Set it on the soap rack with the old bar facing up and when you take your next shower you will find they are glued together.

    I'll have to blame this on my frugal German roots.

    I just use them till they're gone. There's a penny-sized "bar" of soap in the bathroom right now.

    My mother always used to put them in nylon hose. When she had enough, she added them to the lye soap she made which was definately not bath or hand soap.

    I've got a little device--looks like a wand with a closed basket on the end. This holds pieces of soap and allows bathwater to further disolve the stuff. Got it from the way-back machine.

    Throw all the little pieces into a container containing water with a squirt spout(dishwashing soap container)--shake the container once in a while--you have instant liquid hand soap. I ain't cheap!

    I use the Gillmore gluing method. Works great.
