Introduction: How to Use Soap

Picture of How to Use Soap

This instructable is to show you how to use soap. This is for you jamiesoncostello (

Step 1: In the Shower

Picture of In the Shower

First off i suggest that you use soap in the shower. It helps to clean the dirt and germs off of you. First turn on the shower and adjust the temperature to your liking. Then get in, and grab a bar of soap. Firmly hold it, as it will slip from your hands. Then run it all over your body, covering yourself in suds. Then thoroughly rinse your self off, if you need further instruction, read the package of your soap, or go back to the mental institution

Step 2: In the Sink

Washing your hands with soap and water is a very good hygienic practice. It helps to kill germs and keep your hands from becoming icky. First turn the sink water on, then adjust the temperature to your liking. Stick your hands into the water, grab the soap, and scrub them until all visible dirt is removed, or until 3 minutes is up.

Step 3: For Naughty Children With Potty Mouths

This step is thanks to killerjackalope. This is for naughty children, like this one: . (Just Kidding)

When your child says a bad word, simply clean it out of their mouths. To do this simply get a child (preferably your own) that has said a bad word. Then grab a bar of soap. Insert the bar of soap into the child's mouth, and let the flavor soak in ( this usually takes 10-300 seconds, depending how bad the word was) Then take the soap out of the child's mouth, and scold the child, now you are done

Step 4: In the ShowerS.

If you ever find yourself on the wrong side of the law,
This step may be of great use to you.

For reasons completely unknown to me, It seems to be a generally good idea not to "drop the soap" when in a communal shower.
Prison is one example.
But soap can get quite slippery and hard to hold on to.

From that problem we arrive at this solution:
Soap on a rope.

Or for you religious folks, to compliment the bible next to your bunk beds:
Pope on a rope
Though I'm not sure if rubbing the pope around your butt is sacrilegious or not.
Use at your own discretion. (Possible side effects include but are not limited to: runny nose, coughing, sneezing, hay fever, loss of bowel control and eternal damnation)

Added by Jamiesoncostello, because I said I would and I'm a man of my word!

Step 5: Entertainment!

Picture of Entertainment!

Everyone's seen a fountain before.
But they're never really as entertaining as the one in the movie Blank Check.
This could be a problem, but as always, I've got a solution!

Laundry detergent works best, or dish washing liquid.
Soap bars would just take far too long to dissolve.

Step 1.) Acquire soap.
Step 2.) Dump soap into fountain.
Step 3.) Try not to get caught.
Step 4.) Enjoy!

I'll throw a few pictures in this step to let everyone know what's up.

Thank You And Have a Nice Day


One problem. Soap has pesticides in it. Don't stick it in anyone's mouth!

Why would you wash a child mouth out with soap why just scold them and ban them from there favorite toy or even ban the telly

HammE (author)charli102014-04-23

Because, putting soap in a child's mouth tastes bad, so they should think twice before saying a bad word. And I don't think a kid is going to follow the rules if something is banned.

codongolev (author)2009-08-22

I thought that made kids go blind?

a christmas story

it was the bb gun that "made kids go blind" not the soap

the bb gun shot kid's eyes out. he fantasized about going blind and how his parents would forever be ashamed that they made him eat soap.

rfraser2 (author)codongolev2013-09-12

yep, he imagined he had "soap poisoning", but i bet his soap poisoned mouth never cussed again!

naturalhandcraftedsoap (author)2013-06-25

lol Like this

Leonard Zelig (author)2008-08-02

Here is another use for soap: If you are ever in prison, carve a gun out of a bar of soap, use shoe polish to paint it black, then use the "gun" to make a guard open your cell and let you out. Just make sure it isn't raining outside.

ernest goes to jail was hilarious!

TN777 (author)santis3082012-04-11

LOVE Ernest goes to jail! He carves a machine gun out of a bar of soap, and makes a gaurd let him out. But then the tip wilts! Too Funny!

codongolev (author)Leonard Zelig2009-08-22

or wood, john dillinger style.

Do you want to be a collaborator and add that step to it?

kelli_enkeli (author)2011-08-26

Someone needs to make hippies read this. Soap would help improve their hygiene.

EleriK (author)2009-09-13

You can do this with Bleach (tm), if it was a REALLY bad word!

jc817 (author)2008-08-01

If i knew what an instructables collaboration was, or how to use one, I would say make this a collaboration. I almost want to add an entire step on how to use Soap On A Rope.

shammallamaman (author)jc8172008-08-24

You are a collaborator

jc817 (author)shammallamaman2008-08-24

Appreciate my two new steps! APPRECIATE!! :)

shammallamaman (author)jc8172008-08-26

Lol, you know what would be awesome, if we got a whole bunch of members to add a couple steps, it would be huge :D So if anyone wants to be a collaborator, ask me

you can use soap to track moon cycles by tracing the moon on your window..... it washes off later!

jc817 (author)shammallamaman2008-08-26

hahaha this entire page is covered in "would you like to be a collaborator and add that step?" fully, soap mayhem and hygiene should be covered in this instructable to our best extent. when i come up with more ideas, ill add more steps.

shammallamaman (author)jc8172008-08-26

Ok, so will I, I think if we really wanted to, we could beat the record for most colaberators, it is held right now my "How to get a t-shirt for goodhart"

hishealer (author)2009-04-07

One step idea, and yes please use it! In order to avoid jail cells altogether, it is a good idea to use soap in some way before going to court or handling legal business. (you would not believe how many ppl come to court smelling like they haven't ever heard of the stuff! Or smell like smoke of some kind... Not a good thing when you are going to see someone that, with a single word, can get you locked up!)

RoBear613 (author)hishealer2009-06-21

The fact that they are in court in the first place says something about their capacity to think and reason.

hishealer (author)2009-04-07

It was about 2:30 am and I'm searching for food after the club closed... In the streetlights I see clouds floating by... I think someone spiked my drink and pull over... Still hungry, I keep walking and see something like this pic... Thanks for the drugless trip! I still LMAO about that night!

Three other uses for soap. - A great learning material for learning to carve intricate designs - A cheap form of ski, on smooth tarmac or indoors, great on massive hall floors... Keeping it on your feet is tricky... - As a punishment aid, you don't have to wash their mouth out, just throw it... Or if they sleep on their backs with their mouths open snoring, take a knife and shave a few bits in, they will soon lose the habit of snoring...

hey! did you read that somewhere! because that happens to me a lot.. stupid brothers..

It's a pretty well known thing, we do it at parties occasionally though the best one is getting someone with bumfluff stubble and find some high strength spot cream, it has peroxides in it which bleach hair, or shave strips from their eyebrows...

ooooh you are baaad!

We just invented a new one, a little tuna or something cats eat, carefully placed on them, they wake up when the cat jumps on them or eventually bites them attempting to get the last of the food. In the morning they also smell like fish...

oh thats a good one!I am soo going to try that,except with sour cream,the dog will be licking their face and they will wake up and sell like dog saliva a rotten sour cream.

shooby (author)Sunny1246132008-12-02

Ever laugh while drinking milk an have it spray out of your nose? The smell as it gets warm and dries is terrible, and completely inescapable. I just thought of this, but...why not get an eye dropper, and put a few drops of milk into someones nose while they're sleeping. They wake from their dreams, into a nightmare.

Sunny124613 (author)shooby2008-12-05

ooh thats a good one!

Would you like to be a collaborator and add those those ideas to it?

Up to yourself, I don't have photos for these things though, I have considered a basic carving 'ible to learn the hand using a lino cutter and soap as learning materials, I did a lot of intricate lino prints... The ski thing is harder, you need big polished floors and attaching the soap is less than easy, if you knock a shape out of the middle of a thick bar and lash it there it works alright, wetting the floor makes it akin to ice in slipperiness...

Ok, if you can write a few steps then i can probably do the pictures

thanks for the suggestions, i added one of them to the ible

haha, cool... I wonder how many uses there are to come up with...

kekelovesyooh (author)2008-10-15

just use it wash ur hands

merseyless (author)2008-08-27

all the things the french are missing out on.

thematthatter (author)2008-08-01

you can also put it in a sock and beat the crap out of people. Perfect for fun engagements like blanket parties!

Do you want to be a collaborator and add that step to it?

Soap also works to stop windows and mirrors from misting or steaming up - great for the inside of a windscreen. Rub a dry bar of soap over the glass then polish it off with a dry cloth. Repeat when necessary!

shammallamaman (author)Babyshoes2008-08-26

jc817 (author)2008-08-01

I feel like a bigshot now! Fantastic instructable, fantastic topic, and now that kid can stop smelling like burnt hair "no matter how many times he showers" awesome!

shammallamaman (author)jc8172008-08-01

lol, i really think that guy needs to read this

PetervG (author)2008-08-01

Haha.. funny story. I didn't start using soap until I was like eight.
