Because did you know you can do so much more with soap than just wash your hands with it? Soap is very useful around the house as well and not just for cleaning! So, keep around a bar of soap for these nine purposes.

Nine chores around the house you can use soap for.

1. Stuck drawers and sliding doors

When drawers and sliding doors are difficult to open, you can use a bar of soap to make them slide smoothly again. Simply rub the soap onto both edges of the drawer or in the door tracks and your problem is solved.

2. Hide small holes in walls

Got small nail holes in your wall? Use a bar of soap in the same colour as the wall and rub this over the hole. We dare to bet you won’t be able to find the hole again!

3. Prevent paint splatters

Are you about to paint a piece of wall next to a window or mirror? By rubbing the glass with soap, you’ll prevent paint splatters from sticking to the window or mirror in question. With the soap underneath, you’ll be able to easily wipe away any splatters. This way, you’ll never have to tape the windows again. All you need is a bar of soap!
