How to Make a Soap Pouch

6. Turn the washcloth pocket right side out and slip a bar of soap inside.


You can purchase different colored washcloths or ribbon for each child so they know which soap pouch is theirs.

These are great because kids can have a difficult time with slippery bars of soap, or learning how much body wash is enough.

These Soap pouches take the guesswork out of bathing. When they are done, just hang the Soap Pouch up by the little loop. Just perfect!
