Lanier was shown cutting splinters from a bar of soap and placing the shavings in her dresser drawer.

“She used to shave soap because it brings out the smell,” she revealed. “Put it in my dresser and put my clothes in it.”

She placed freshly washed and dried clothes on the dresser with the soap shavings at the bottom.

“They smelled fresh and clean,” she added.

Nostalgic fans shared their memories with their elders in the comments section.

“My mom put Dove soap in our drawers,” one wrote. “I put dryer sheets in mine now.”

“I love both ideas,” Lanier replied.

“My mom does this,” shared another. “But she only opens the soap box.”

“Shaving takes it further,” Lanier advised.

Others shared a reason other than the scent to put shaving soap in the drawers.

“Yes you would need to keep moths away,” shared another. “They were handy then.”
