HP Soap is NOT rough and soft!

1. I use the tapered part of a plastic as a funnel for filling bath bags, easier than trying to spoon the stuff in.

2. Seen in grocer's - leave the top on the bottle and cut the body to make a shovel/scoop.

These are great uses and the good thing is, the bottles can be sterilised using the cold water method (as in baby sterilisation).

I also think the bottoms of fizzy drinks bottles are a very interesting shape.  This could be used as a mould for massage soap and lotion bars, both the large bottles and the single serving bottles (the smaller ones).

Thanks Elaine!  Wink

I cut them in half and put them over plants to form cloches,

And, i use screw top bottles for keeping homemade wine and ginger beer in.

I used this idea last summer, the bottom of a famous cola bottle, make the soap and it unmoulds into a pretty daisy shaped soap.
