Is there any reason not to use Ivory Soap (the bar kind) to wash dishes?
For some reason I go through dish soap like crazy but I have 17 aging bars of old Ivory soap left over from something or other. I am neither poor nor cheap, just wondering if I can use up one by using it as the other.

If I remember right ... you can shave ivory soap and add in borax to make laundry soap. I think I have a recipe somewhere I'll look in the morning..my grandkids tuckered me out and I'm in bed stealing some quiet time lol.

You can repour the old soap as well. Just put it on super low and stir enough to keep it from burning. When melted, pour it into an old bread pan lined with a triple layer of foil.
I would add oatmeal fines and chia tea to make a nice exfoliating solution.
