Netted Soap Saver
Wonderful tool in my Art Classroom!
I bought 4 of these last year - one for each sink in my Art classroom. My counters are too deep for the students (K-5) to reach a dispenser so I provide bar soap but most of my kids didn't know how to get a lather from a bar. These were a perfect (and cheap) solution! The soap savers have stood up well to being used by 700 kids in a week's time. We don't have messy media every week but when handwashing is a must, I'm thankful for these. They show signs of wear but are holding up great. At this price, not a problem to replace every year or two!

Perfect for expensive soap
I have very sensitive skin and cannot use most soap. The soaps I can use are either very expensive or very lather-less, and sometimes both. I find myself with lots of shards that yield no suds, but that I can't bear to throw away due to the cost. This has been a perfect solution! Not only has it allowed me to use every "scrap" of soap, but it helps produce suds!! I am in love!! If you use black soap, tea tree soap, or any number of soaps such as those from makers like Lush or Hugo Naturals, this is for you!

does not work well
Does not work well at all. I put a few small chunks of soap in the bag, and pull the draw string. That is the only part that works well. When I put it under water and try to get lather it does, but very small amount. Then when you wash your body it feels like you are scraping your body and it does not make any more lather. It also kind a hurts. I stopped using it due to very little lather it makes. I went back to using the wash towel way. I am still trying to find a way to use every bit of the soap bar.

Great money saver
I've had this before and absolutely loved it. I use a mild soap instead of body washes. When the soap bars gets too small for me to handle, they go in the bag. I like that the drawstring holds the soap bits in and this is a great way to exfoliate your skin, all in this little bag. One tip, this is my SECOND one because when i brought it to the laundromat to wash it, it accidentally wound up in the dryer and unfortunately melted a bit. :( Another great product

Years ago I had one of these and have been looking for a new one.
They are great to use shaving your legs in the shower. Just ordered 2 more in case they quit selling them. Thanks for a great product.

Works Well -- Wears Out
The idea of this product is excellent, enabling you to reuse the little soap bits you would otherwise throw out.
Unfortunately these pouches wear out after a year or two, somewhat counteracting the cost savings of conserving soap.
You might want to try one and see how long it lasts you and determine if it's worth the cost or not.

My husband has been looking for this product for some time. It was just what he wanted.

Great for Visually Impaired
Shortly after coming home from a lengthy hospital stay, my husband lost some (most) of his vision. His preferred bar soap was a deep moisturing soap (slippery) and it was a white bar. When he dropped the bar of soap in the shower, because of his limited vision, he had a difficult time finding the white bar on the white shower floor. I found this product and it has been great. Because of the netting, it is easier for him to hold on to the soap and since I buy only the colored pouches, when he drops the netted soap saver, it is much easier for him to find the bar of soap.

I love these. They last long. I love homemade soaps. The using these seem to make them last longer. I have tried others and they fell apart after one or two uses

Love the Soap Saver
I have been using the netted soap saver for 4 years now. I am a big bar soap fan but hated how my bar of soap would get soft and run out when it sat through my roommates showers. This little tool has solved that problem! Not only does the net provided an extra deeper clean but it saves the soap. I highly reccomend!

Saves on soap
I never knew what to do with all the soap slivers & I am still "old school" enough to continue using the bars! This is perfect because it allows you to use every last scrap.

One of the best inventions ever
These are just great - uses up small pieces of soap - well made - I have made up baskets of toiletries for gifts for gifts and always include one of these.

I have used nylon bags as exfoliaters since the 60's when my mother made one for me. She can not make them anymore, so I found these online. A bar of soap alone will not remove dead, loose skin. A washcloth is little better. Once you use these, you will not shower again without one. I take one in my toiletry kit anywhere I travel.

Saves Money and Soap
I am a big fan of those fancy scented soaps! I love these soap savers because they allow me to get the most for my money. A full size bar of soap lasts MONTHS and nothing goes to waste!

I had been looking for these soap savers for ages --- they are hard to find.
Not only do they allow me to use every bit of the soap bar but the netting also creates lather, not unlike a bath puff. When I'm through bathing, I just hang them up on the shower caddy. No soap dish needed.

Makes glycerin soap lather
I can only use glycerin soap and missed the lather I got from other soaps. This thing has the right amount of scrub, since the hardness of a bar of soap makes it feel more scratchy than a regular mesh pouf, and I can get really good foam out of my soap. Unfortunately it lasts as long as a mesh pouf. My first one unraveled. Then I unknowingly ripped my second one as I was opening it to insert a new soap. I'm on my third and am going to try to be more careful. At least it's cheap!

Great idea... A little rough
Great idea. I would like the product better if it were fluffier.

Not only is it a great product and allows to use soap bars completely up, it lasts a long time.

Whoever designed this deserves some sort of award.
Whoever designed this is a genius. I've always had good intentions about using bar soap (cheaper, saves water and plastic, etc.), but never followed through because a) it is slippery in the shower and b) doesn't seem to lather up as well. Along came the netted soap saver and solved both problems simultaneously. And I haven't even had it long enough to use it to combine tiny, otherwise unusable pieces of soap (a task it will almost certainly excel at). So if you are even slightly tempted to buy this, DO IT! (Yes, I'm peer pressuring you, but I'm using that power for good.)

I bought an extra one to hang over the outside tap. Easy to clean up dirty hands while I am gardening.

These are handy to get the full use of your soap. They are bigger than I expected, meaning they actually hold a full bar of soap, not just pieces.

Not perfect but still like it
I have sensitive skin so I stay away from those body washes with fragrances and scents. I used to hate throwing away the tiny slivers of soap (everything is expensive these days you know). I'm glad I bought this soap saver. It also works great as an exfoliator.
However, not everything is perfect. I have to put in two bars of soap for it to be big enough to hold. Also I have to wet it for about a minute to get enough lather going. But the most annoying flaw is the drawstring. It's always in the way. I have to position it on one side and scrub my body with the another side so it doesn't scratch my skin.
Anyway, good product but could be better.

Great Saving Trick
Those last, tiny slivers of your bar of soap REALLY bother me. I hate just tossing them because they got too small. With the netted soap saver I don't even have to think about them anymore.

The best thing I bought in 2010
2010 was a year of saving money and eliminating plastic bottles in our house. This handy product did both! Not only does it extend the life of a bar of soap, but no more awful plastic bottles of body wash to throw away. Yay!

Use up the soap slivers!
I hate throwing out the ends of soap bars. With this little bag you combine them and end up with a soap-filled scrubbie for the shower. It works and you can feel good about being thrifty, too.

I bought two of these. Never have to fight with a small bar again. The nylon mesh also is a great exfolater. When the bar is getting small just add another bar. No more throwing away those little bars, with this soap saver you use the whole bar. I bought one for me and one for my husband. The draw string closer is also great because they can hang to dry so no more bar soap film on your soap dish.

Not as much lather as I had hoped
For some reason, I don't get a lot of lather with my bar soap and this product. 2 bars of soap and I really have to work it to get it going. I love the fact that you can exfoliate while washing and using my regular bar soap but the liquid soap lathers up much more quickly. Still a great product and awesome for the FEET!

I love this product in my laundry room! It makes the best scrubby for getting stains out of clothes, especially my sons baseball uniform! I have purchased several and given them to other moms on the team. Its a home run!

No more Soggy Soap
These soap pouches are great. They will accommodate the largest bar of soap or the tiniest bit of soap scraps. The cord snugs up tight and the closure slider keeps it secured. No more messy soap dishes.
The only complaint I have with this purchase is that I ordered three, two were white and one was blue. Even though I knew choice of color was picked by The Container Store, I was hoping that I would receive three different colors since the picture showed four different colors.
I still like the Net Soap Pouch, a great product.
