knuckleduster soap

never lose the soap in the bath again.
  [vote for,

the traditional round or oval shaped soap fits nicely in the palm of the hand but it is also the very shape that will most easily slip from your grasp.

oh, what fun trying to locate a bar of soap under the water! you’d think it were possessed of jet-propulsion and a sense of humour.

the trendy square bars, I find, are not very comfortable to run over the skin - in fact the corners are quite aggressive.

now, if the soap were designed along the lines of a knuckle-duster – pierced with several holes (in all ring sizes) - then you would be able to insert one, two or three fingers into the apertures and retain a firm grip on the bar whilst lathering up.

       Use a soap sponge, babe! I'd send you one for your birthday, but it's too late.

       This is oddly aggressive for you, even if it's soap - you been watching the Sopranos?

       Be good for partner punch ups in the bath. Fighting with the soap instead of over it.   

       When I was a student, I designed a knuckle duster that actually dusted and vacuumed... I'm sure that idea is well baked by now, but I never thought of this variation which is a little gem +

       how did that work xenzag?

       .... sorry po - just noticed your question, because of jutta's link. It was shaped like a knuckle duster, but had brushes protruding instead of the usual "knuckle lumps", and a short section of tubing running along the edge attached to a small suction pump that you wore on your wrist like a large watch - it never caught on - wonder why?

       I'd buy one.

       //perfect for prisons too - no dangerous bending over movements and self defence while showering.//   

       I would have felt a lot safer using this soap when I was in the Navy.
