Soap Helps You Sleep

Soap Helps You Sleep


My Mom is the Sunday School Treasurer at church and I go around counting people and collecting the money. Sunday (May 20th 2007) the 'Ladies' class were having a discussion when I went in. (They're in their 70s, 80s, 90s.) I didn't hear the whole thing, but someone had a nurse for a cousin or some such, and this nurse told them to put a bar of soap under their bed. It's helps a restless sleeper get to sleep.

One woman said her bar of soap didn't work under her bed, so she put it between the sheets. (Probably down at the foot of the bed.) Anyhoo, she said it also helped with her aches and pains, and she was able to get to sleep. One woman said she had laughed and made fun when she was told to try it, but then found it really worked. They said not to use deodorant soap, or anti-bacterial soap, but just plain ole soap. One uses Ivory, the other Dove.

I decided to Google and see what I could find:

The bar of soap is only suppose to work for about 6 months, and then you replace it with a new bar of soap. Yesterday I discovered what I could do with the old bars of soap:

Also, just to update. I still keep a bar of Ivory soap under the bottom sheet at the foot of my bed. I use 'Ivory' because the Google searches I made stated 'Ivory' worked the best. And I don't swap it out every six months, I wait for my knees to start acting up first. Sometimes it's eight months or so before they start giving me problems.


Sometime later, my Mom's hip started giving her pain, and I suggested the soap trick. She kept complaining and finally I told her to give the soap trick a try for one week and that she could slap me if it didn't work. It took about a week, but her hip stopped hurting.

So, it isn't just for 'Restless Leg Syndrome.'
