    Soap slime, aka that gross layer of soap that accumulates underneath a bar of soap after you set it down, is one of life's minor annoyances, but an annoyance nonetheless. Reddit user Pavement_ist_rad had enough of it and decided to hack a bottle cap on the bottom of a bar of soap to prevent the slime from building up.
    Using a standard bottle cap, twist the cap into the bottom of a bar of a soap and you have yourself a little platform for the soap to stand on. This prevents the wet soap from leaking all over the place and creating a layer of soap slime in your shower or countertop.

    How about being civilized and buying liquid hand soap? :ufacepalm: That's disgusting, picking up a bar of soap that people have handled with fecal matter on their hands. :biting:

    ...even better i put a pump from an empty shampoo bottle in my lavender soap. theres no beef tallow binding the soap together thats where the soap scum comes from i think. theres also peppermint and hemp soap.

    It's clean fecal matter if it's on soap.
