My husband’s favorite tie is finally getting threadbare and ugly. It’s time to retire it. He read the label and said “It’s 100% silk, and you use silk in soap. Can you use this old tie dissolved in soap?” First, I love him, cuz he’s as crazy about my hobbies as I am! Second, is there anything wrong with me dissolving a little piece of silk cloth into my soap? The only thing I can think of is maybe the dyes doing something weird. Is there any chance they could become skin irritants in the presence of lye? They were originally safe to touch, because it’s clothing… Thoughts?
