Why you ask? Because I can. Oh I am sorry. That was my conversation with Mark. LOL Why are you doing this? (With the, this is stupid tone.) Because I can, was my reply (With the, smarty pants tone.). And I did. A bar of Dial soap, size H hook and a smidgen of wool. Then about 5 minutes of agitation in my hands and across my microwave bacon cooker (Which I have had for 3 years and keep adding to the yard sale box and then pulling it out. We do not eat bacon. Now I know why I kept it. Oh and it was something Mark bought. LOL) Wool is a great exfoliater and skin softener. Natural lanolin. And it feels so plush. It will keep shrinking around the soap with use and then when it is done, I will add the lil glob of wool to a pincushion or some such thing. No waste.
