Hey, another boring post on my supplies that I've squirreled away for ten years. I've stored Ivory soap and Irish Spring for a while. The items were stored in their own box in the bathroom, in the cabinet drawers, and also the linen closet. Be sure that the soap, detergents, and other strongly scented chemicals are keep in another room for your food supplies. Food stuffs will acquire the scent.
Both the Ivory soap and Irish Spring soap worked just like new soap. The only downside to the Ivory soap is that the paper wrapping has to be picked from the soap, and can get tedious. If this is the only soap in the tri-county area, then it would be a small price to pay. Personally, I'll be buying and only storing soap in the box.
Might as well make it as easy as possible, without any added hassle, while I can. One of the first things that I want to do after a long backpacking trip is to take a long hot shower. A clean body feels so good!
