Question "garden soap on a rope"

I am trying to find someone who can help me make a "garden soap" you hang by your garden hose. It looks like soap on a rope. I just saw it somewhere... and of course I cant find it now. I thought it would be a great idea to keep the husband and kids out of the house after we had been working in the garden. Has anyone seen anything like this or have any ideas on how i could do something like this?
Please let me know!
thanks
julie

soap on a rope

I read of one that was made simple by putting soap in a leg of old panty hose and hanging from the faucet . I didn't do it, but sounds pretty simple until a better or more attractive way comes along.

An extension on the panty hose idea..........save your small slivers of soap and put them into an old panty hose leg. When it gets about half full, tie it closed and then tie it near your outside water
spicket! Neat, convenient and economical !!

Mesh bags

We use an old mesh bag. We just place a bar of soap in it and hang from the outdoor faucet. It works great when scrubbing the dirt and grease from your hands.

Hey, prairiegirl, I like your idea of using the mesh bags much better than the panty hose!!! Next time I am a Wal-Mart, I think I will pick up a mesh bag & try it out!

Thanks!

outdoor soap

Why buy a mesh bag, use the ones that apples and oranges and onions come in?????
They make wonderful pot scrubbers too.

Just curious dollmama2000, where do you live? I am asking because aroudn here where I live (southeast Louisiana) fruit comes in plastic bags. Onions do come in a mesh type of bag.... but sturdy they are not! Sometimes the bag rips and onions are spilling out before I can even get my groceries unloaded from the car!!

It does, however, sound like a good tip for someone wanting to make a soap bag OR someone like me who likes to recycle everything possible!

Thanks!

mesh bags

Here in Manitoba I can buy onions and sometimes oranges in mesh bags. Recently I bought some multiplier onions to plant in a smaller weave mesh bag that was perfect for the soap. The onion bags can tear here quiet easily if you tug and pull at them, but with just washing, they are fine. I also like to use the bags to scrub as well. Works great on the bbq.

I was thinking that the pantihose suggestion might be good as a bath scrubber/loofah. I wonder if it would be too abrasive? Guess I'll have to try;-)

This idea works just as well for camping. Keeps the soap from getting slimy and or dirty.
