The Many Uses of Ivory

Today I am going to review the Ivory Bar Soap that I received in my MomVoxBox from Influenster.
I have always had positive thoughts on Ivory soap. My grandmother used to buy it when I was little.
The smell is nice and refreshing. When I used the soap, it left my skin feeling clean and fresh. I did not get the slimy feeling when using it, like I have experienced with other soaps. You know the feeling...it's like you have to keep rinsing and rinsing to get the slimy soap feeling off. Yep, I didn't experience that with the Ivory soap. Also, it didn't leave my skin feeling dry afterward.

My three children also tried the Ivory soap. The liked that it floated in the bathtub (because it is 99.44% pure). So, I did end up having to take it away because I didn't want them wasting it while playing with it in the bathtub. One of my sons has eczema and this soap did not aggravate it. And that is always a good thing.

Ivory soap is more than just a body and facial cleanser. Did you know that Ivory can be used as a stain remover for clothes? You can also grate it into flakes for homemade laundry detergent (use the bar for handwashing delicates). I have also heard that if you put Ivory soap into the microwave, it will puff up like a fluffy cloud! I see a homeschool science experiment in the future! And, if you are crafty with a knife, you can carve it into cute animal shapes! (Photo was found on Ivory's Facebook page.)
Ivory bar soap can be purchased for $4.27 for a 10-pack of bath size bars. Yes, I said a 10-pack! I think this is a great value. It is actually one of the least expensive soaps on a per ounce basis. Plus, it has been around for over 125 years! Ivory even created their Facebook page as a community so moms can share their tips and tricks with other moms as a way to help things run more smoothly at home.

  1. My husband loves Ivory soap. He used it when he was a teenager for acne. Me, when I was in the hospital a nurse used it to give me a bed bath and I broke out into hives. I use it or Fels Naptha to make my homemade laundry soap and it does a good job. One thing though, it does tend to gunk up the shower if you use it when showering.
