What is a Soap Pouch? A Soap pouch or bag is a wash cloth material usually terry cloth that is sewn in to a bag or pouch to hold soap while bathing or showering. The Pouch replaces a regular wash cloth or bath pouf. The soap stays in the bag through out the bath or shower and is removed from the pouch after bathing. The bag can them be laundered and reused. You get the exfoliation and scrubbing power of a poof with out the germs that hide in pouf. Never leave the soap in the pouch because the added moisture will desegregate the soap fast and item left wet in the bath or shower can cause mold or bacteria. Always keep your soaps in a dry place when not in use.

I happen tobe making a bunch of these little goodies to sell with my soaps at the Nashville Flea Market in September. I’m so excited. Do you guys have any ideas for add-on items I can sell with the soaps?
