Tie them up in a piece of womens stocking and use them as a body scrubber. If you leave the stocking long enough you can use it on your back and it will slough off the old dry skin. Cheaper than buying those lil scrunchy things too : )

I particularly enjoy them with Starch Salsa.

Just kidding.

I soap-weld them to fresh bar of soap.

i can give you a good example of australian humor - we had been warned that their jokes will sneak up on you and they're deadly. like all new people, i was in a hueey to get to my room and changed for the evning, and i took the elevator. i'd been in town a cople weks so recognized the fella who was running it, and i complained about some "musk-flavored" breath mints i'd picked up at the kiosk that morning. he sez lemme ave a look at that so he perused the label as we ascended and chatted about something else. as the door opened he smiled, returned the mints and commented, "aw yeah, they're for feminine hygiene mate!" i agreed and wished him a good evening. about 6 steps down the hall, the elevator was long gone, the mints had just plopped in my pocket and i thought "they're for what? WHAT did he say? what have i been eating all day? " and i began frantically digging the pkg out and peering nder the nearest light to read every last word of the label. of course it was a joke, and perfectly performed too i might add. never did get the bastid back for that one. aussie humor - none bettah :)

you must not mean regular soap chips? my gramma used to make soap (lye outa the rainbarrel & tallow) into bars in a cakepan, then slice it into chips in the maytag on laundry day.

i spose you're one of those picky people who doesn't appreciate accoustic resonance? steam up all the soap chip/booger/whatnot stalagmites vibrating on our shower door and boy i tell ya, by the time you belt out the "oh say can you see?" in the natioal anthem, yer cheeks will be repercussing a like a cartoon bulldog's! somebody ever taps a tuning fork in our bathroom, dive for cover! lol
