Do you store your pins in soap?

What kind of soap? Does it need to be an all natural kind or just regular? I need to get some but not sure what to use.

I read somewhere to use Ivory so that is what we have used for the past four months. It has started to break apart however (six pins are stored in it).

I never store mine in soap. They're sharp and I've never had any trouble getting them through the fabric.

I just use whatever soap we have in the house. First bar was Olay, then we needed that for the shower and now I'm using Caress. Both worked fine.

Re: Do you store your pins in soap?

howdy! you can wrap the soap bar in an old sock to contain crumbs or i got some cool little "soap wallets" from a wahm here. they were just a little overlapping envelope of wool scrap that you could slip the bar into. can't remember mama's name since i've deleted those pm's. are you out there, mama?

I use Ivory it is cheap. When the bar crumbles I will use it in laundry detergent.

I do, I can put the pins through my pf without the soap but it is easier if I use it. As for crumbly soap, I've sewn an old dish rag over the bar before, and I crochet a little soap holder too
