If you have no idea what i'm talking about you can look here: http://fashiontribes.typepad.com/la_story/2007/04/snappy_shower_b.html

I was wondering if anyone knows how to make them on your own?  Would it be like making the loofa soaps where you just put the soap around the sponge?  I think that might be wrong since the sponges are soft the first time you use them rather than being encased in soap.  It's like the soap is encased in the sponge!  If anyone has played with this idea I'd love to hear your findings =)

I'd guess it isn't a solid soap... Maybe soak a sponge in a shower gel and let it dry??? Esp since it says they have like 7 washes. Hmm if you figure it out let us know... neat idea.

Maybe you could dip a sponge into melt & pour soap? I know that people dip loofahs into mp soap, I can't see why you wouldn't be able to do the same with a sponge.

Also, I wonder what would happen if you tried this with one of those dehydrated/condensed sponges? Maybe it would soak up the melted soap and inflate?

Now you have me curious!

I meant to pick up sponges yesterday.

I want to try this with some M&P scraps I have kicking around. If it works, I'll try with CP scraps.

It appears to be sponges soaked in melted soap. I'd like to get my hands on one to check it out, but in the meantime will try a couple of things.

Thanks for sharing the link!

Felting over soap is a similar idea that may be a good alternative for you.

I've been to the market twice and forgot to get sponges. I WILL go after church this morning...I wrote a Post-It and put it on my steering wheel.

I'll play today.

I did it. Easy peasy.

I used M&P scraps which were a mix of white and orange. Cut a plain, untreated sponge in half. Soaked one and spooned soap onto the other.

DD4 used one last night. It bubbled, it smelled good, and it wasn't scratchy. It was definitely stiff, but she had fun.

I think shapes would definitely help. After her bath, I set it on the white sink to look for drippage, but itwas minimal. It dried and is a little softer than yesterday but still has plenty of soap left.
