The many uses of Ivory

Ivory soap is not just for washing your body! Did you know their are many things to use Ivory for?

Not only is it a face and body wash, but you can remove stains from clothes, use it as a carving project or even for your laundry soap! But what I did was blew mine up! 

I found an experiment on another site for blowing up a bar of Ivory. Weird, right?
Well, when you have a 10 year old boy, it's exciting!

When I received this bar of Ivory soap from Influenster, I will be honest, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it! It's a little overpowering for my pregnant senses these days but I quickly remembered the project I had found about blowing up a bar of Ivory!

Here is what you do- Cut a bar of Ivory soap in half, and put it on a microwave safe plate. (I just used a paper plate) Put it on for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Within about 15 seconds it starts to expand! And at the end of the minute and a half it took over my paper plate!

Crazy, right? We thought it was pretty cool! And we saved the other half to blow up when dad got home!

I like Ivory because it's probably the cheapest soaps out there and has so many uses! Go pick up a bar today for your cleaning (or blowing things up) needs!

  1. i have also heard (but i always forget to try) that you can rub ivory soap over a nail hole in your wall and it will fill it in acting as spackle.

  2. I think I have heard something like that before too! Good to know! :)
