These cute little zero waste reusable crochet soap savers have 2 distinct uses:

  • Use them for travel to carry your soap and shampoo bars around so you don’t get soap all over your toiletries
  • Use it as a washcloth with integrated soap. The acrylic yarn prevents the sock from felting or losing shape with hot water and is just scratchy enough to give you a little scrub at the same time. You can make them in cotton yarn if you prefer a soft touch.

You like to gift soaps? Make these cute little pouches to gift them in. They work up in no time and add a lot of personality to your gift. Plus, no need for wrapping paper which helps the planet too.
