Vintage Bar Soap
Today I thought it would be great to share my memories of bar soap from days gone by. I remember that Ivory soap claimed that they were the "only soap that floats." Whilst doing a search on vintage soap I noticed that there were two other soaps that floated. One of the soaps was called "Fairy", the other was "Swan". Here are a couple of photos of Fairy soap.
As you can see on these photos, it mentions that it is a floating soap.
Another vintage soap I remember well, and that is still sold today, is Ivory. What I don't remember, though, is that it was also used to hand wash clothes in its bar form...as this ad illustrates.
Another bar soap I remember well is Sweetheart. Here is a vintage photo of this one.
And last but not least for today on the topic of vintage soap is Swan. I don't remember it as well as the others but seeing this photo reminded me of it. As you will see in the photo, it claims to be a floating soap!
