Review: The many uses of Ivory soap - gentle, but effective cleaning

 As part of my Mom VoxBox I also received a bar of Ivory soap. I have been using Ivory as my everyday soap for quite some time and using specialty soaps off and on as a special treat. So walking into my bathroom, you would always see Ivory laying around in a soapdish. I love the fact that the scent is very understanted for Ivory and that it gets your skin clean, without being harsh. I normally use it for facial and body cleaning, but decided to include pictures of my hands and arms because I had just stepped in from the yard and my arms had dirt all over them from working in the vegetable garden.

Like I said, Ivory is usually found in my bathrooms because it is reasonably priced and cleans well, but gently. You can already see the foam that easily forms with Ivory and just a little water. That is why I sually use for body cleansing. It lasts a really long time and you do not have to soak in water to get the foaming action that helps clean.
I have also used Ivory as a facial soap, but as a treat to myself, I sometimes use specialty soaps with lavender scent or fruity scents. I have found that soap can be a special treat and you do not have to spend a lot of money. Ivory has many different uses, I do not routinely use it to clean laundry with, but I know people that use it that way. I love using Ivory though for spot treatment and to quickly remove stains. Wet the area of the clothing around the spot, rub a little of Ivory over it, add some more water and almost all stains have disappeared after one quick treatment.It is amazing that Ivory has not thought of a way to make their soap more portable and cash in on the money that people spend on spot removal sticks. I still prefer Ivory for spot removing because I know it works well and will not damage my clothing!

So thanks Influenster for including my favority soap in the VoxBox. I love how Ivory cleans and the scent of the soap is one I associate with clean. I can highly recommend Ivory as the go-to soap for body and facial cleaning, but be brave and give it a try for quickly removing stains from clothes. It really does a fantastic job!
