Crochet Pattern: Delta Soap Saver

By Claire Ortega-Reyes – 7 Comments
Spa products are typically pricey-but in reality you can make your own! One of my favorites are soap savers. They actually save you money by making the most of soap bars, make sure your soap doesn’t jump out of your hands, and also give you extra exfoliation. The great news is, they are easy to make! Rachel has already shared some fantastic patterns: 5 Simple Soap Savers and Absolutely Easy Soap Saver. These patterns use medium weight yarn; and so I decided to try my hand on a thread version.

    Really important: When making soap savers, don’t use cotton — way too absorbent. At least Peaches and Creme is. It will change your soap saver into a soap eater. Now I use 1 strand of cotton (for absorbency) and 1 strand of acrylic. Works great.
