As if I already didn't have enough to do, I thought I'd come up with yet another day-related theme for the blog.
Each Tuesday, I'll regale you with a "how-I-do-things" kind of tip, and I'd love it if you'd leave one of yours in the comments. Sort of like a modern "Hints from Heloise".
And so, without further ado, I give you this week's installment of . . .
In my house, we use good ol' fashioned, handmade, bar soap for hands.
Have you ever seen a soap dish after even one small child has used the bar soap in it?
So, at my house, we have a protocol for bar soap usage. While it may seem a little extreme, if you've ever had to be the one responsible for cleaning the bathroom, you'll understand completely.
How to Wash One's Hands Without Making a Mess
(This is the version I use when I help 3yo Lil'MissL wash her hands.)
- Turn on the water.
- Wet one hand.
- Pick up the soap with your other, still dry, hand.
- Rub some soap off onto the wet hand.
- Put the soap back in its place, damp side up.
- Wet your dry hand.
- Make bubbles.
--Humbly subimtted in the hope that someone, some day, will no longer be enslaved to the rigorous toil of de-sliming a soap dish. ;o)
