“The Many Uses of Ivory”
I'm sooo excited to have received a full size bar of Ivory Soap as part of being an Influenster as part of my MomVoxBox. You see I received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster and Ivory as a participant in the Mom VoxBox campaign. There is so much I can say about Ivory Soap. I love that it is 99.94 % pure. No extra additives or irritants that can irritate one's skin much less my baby's skin. My son isn't super sensative to soap but I've found that this one seems to be the gentlest of them all. I also found that there's another use that I'm going to investigate later on and that's to make home made laundry soap at a fraction of the coast of traditional laundry soap! WOW who ever thought of that was a genious. Plus it's the only soap that actually floats. My son loves crafts and loves boats so I did something that we as kids used to do and that was to make a boat out of the Ivory Soap before we used it! :) To do this is super simple: take 1 bar of Ivory Soap, 1 took pick, 2 sticky notes and a pen to write a message if you like, a little scotch tape and that's it. To put this together is super easy. Just take the toothpick and put it in the center of the bar of Ivory Soap. Then take the two sticky notes after writing a message (In our case we put the USS Sylva on both sides LOL )and then put a little bit of scotch tape at bottom of the ticky notes and around the toothpick to seal it. Then just fill the bathtub and let it float! It was a lot of fun as you will be able to see from the picture! My son really enjoyed this bath and was almost like a prune when he got out as he just had so much fun playing with his floating "boat". LOL Ivory is also very affordable. It's like $1.34 for 3 bars or $4.99 for a 10 pack at most stores like WalMart and Target. I even suggest following Ivory on both Twitter and FB. Here's their FB page :https://www.facebook.com/Ivory and here's their twitter page: http://twitter.com/Ivory Years ago I heard how Ivory Soap can be used as a stain remover for getting things like "ring around the collar" out. I was skeptical but when hubby came home last week w/ a case of "ring around the collar" I decided to give it a try! Well guess what? NO MORE "RING AROUND THE COLLAR" . I'm really impressed with how many uses there are for Ivory Soap and how affordable it is , especially in today's economy where everyone, myself included is trying to save money. I'm sure that once you try Ivory Soap you will find just as many uses as I have and maybe even more. If so please feel free to leave new uses here on the blog!
