Sunlight SoapLife hacks have been around for a long time. For many, they were simply a tradition or an alternative – making everyday life easier to cope with. There are many truly South African life hacks that are being practised on daily basis, some traceable through several generations.

The green Sunlight Bar Soap has been around since 1891. Apart from being used as a normal soap bar, its original use has been hacked to introduce other uses as well.  No household is truly complete without a bar of Sunlight soap!
