A few weeks ago, before Sunday School, our pastor’s wife taught us a little tip to keep soap from getting too mushy. She had read that, if you remove soap from its wrapper as soon as you buy it, it will dry out a bit and will not be so mushy when you use it. This will help the soap last longer.
This sounded like a good idea, but where do I put the soap after I take the wrapper off? Why, a tissue box of course! Just cut the top off the box and neatly line the soap inside the box. It is just the right size.
I also use tissue boxes for other things. They are handy for organizing drawers and keeping small items from getting lost. They are also great for making a travel sewing/craft kit. One tissue box holds my thread, needles, elastic, pins, googly eyes, hemming tape, scissors and crochet hooks. It is big enough to carry all the items I need, yet small enough to fit in a tote bag or a little space in the car. These are some ideas for using old tissue boxes. What do you use your old tissue boxes for?
