Soap can be used for several things. Particularly cheap soap with a strong scent, such as Irish Spring. Spreading the soap shavings evenly around your dresser keeps your laundry fresh, and apparently it keeps rodents away too.
At least that’s what TikTok creator Kyle, who is a holistic healer, claims. In his video, he shares why Irish Spring soap is better used on things other than the body. Let’s find out why!
I’ve always been suspicious of Irish spring soap, especially because of its neon green colour.
As Kyle says in the video,
“That’s the only thing toxic soaps are really good for, and it’s not your body. Irish spring shavings actually keep rodents out of your house, and I use them to keep me away from my RV. Well, if that keeps rodents away, what do you think it does in your body when it’s absorbed through your skin when you shower?”
He continues by saying,
“Never use crappy soaps like that because they mess up your hormone system and do other negative things in your body that you don’t want. Use natural products, not nasty products.”
In other words, he claims that using toxic soap on your body messes with your hormone levels.
However, the TikTok community had different opinions regarding the rodents.
As TikToker @_krystle11 said,
“Mice love to eat this soap. Tried it in the RV and Cabin years ago and both places created a buffet!”
I could see that, mice are true scavengers!
Another TikToker @wilderwaters chimed in,
“Agreed! Didn’t help at all, just put them on.”
Oh no! I wonder how many mice turned up to that Irish springtime soap buffet.
And TikToker @lorriegingras suggested,
“Peppermint oil is the best, that didn’t work!”
Good to know!
