Vintage Soap Saver
A soap saver was used to preserve and use up every last bit of bar soap. When the bar soap got too small to use on a washboard, the small bits were placed inside of the soap saver and swished through the water to create suds. They were particularly used in the dishwater. They have a "hinged" lid and a small metal ring to secure the basket once closed. These have a very vintage appearance and look like they have seen many wash days. These make an excellent addition to your primitive home decor. Hang them off a hook in your bath or laundry room or on an old washboard for display. Just another way to add vintage charm to your laundry or bath.
