Poufs are a great addition to any bathroom. They provide a place for soap, shampoo, and other shower necessities while also providing added functionality like catching water. But what if you want your pouf to hold more than just the basic necessities? This guide will teach you how to make your own pouf that holds soaps, conditioners, shampoos, and more!

Shower poufs are an essential part of any good bathing routine. They help to slough off dead skin cells, encourage blood flow and are just plain refreshing. But did you know that not all shower poufs are created equal? In fact, there are two main types of shower poufs – those that hold soap and those that don’t.

If you’re looking for a shower pouf that can do double duty as a soap holder, then you’ll want to look for one made out of mesh. These poufs typically have a little pouch or compartment that’s designed to hold a bar of soap. That way, you can lather up without having to juggle both a pouf and a bar of soap.

Sponge poufs, on the other hand, don’t typically have any compartments or holders. They’re simply designed to help exfoliate your skin. However, you can easily turn a sponge pouf into a soap holder by tying a piece of string around the center. This will create a little pocket that’s perfect for holding a bar of soap.

So, which type of shower pouf is right for you? If you want something that will help keep your soap within reach, then go for a mesh option. But if you’re simply looking for something to help exfoliate your skin, then a sponge pouf will do the trick.

What You’ll Need

You can find these pre-made at any bath and beauty store, but why not make your own? Not only is it more economical, but you can also customize them to your own liking! Plus, if you have sensitive skin, you can avoid harsh chemicals and artificial dyes by making these poufs yourselves. Here’s what you’ll need:

-A loofah, body puff, or mesh sponge

-Soap of your choice

-Essential oils (optional)


1. Wet your loofah, body puff, or mesh sponge and add soap.

2. Apply to your body in a circular motion to work up a lather.

3. Rinse off and repeat as necessary.

4. If desired, add a few drops of essential oil to the pouf before using for an aromatherapy experience.

Step One: Cut the Mesh

To make your own shower pouf, you’ll need a loofah sponge (or one of its alternatives), some mesh, and a way to fasten the two together. Here’s how to do it:

1. Cut the mesh into a circle that’s about six inches in diameter.

2. Cut the loofah sponge into thirds. You’ll use one third for this project, and you can save the other two for later.

3. Fasten the two pieces of mesh together with a stitch or two. You can use a needle and thread, or a hot glue gun.

4. Slip the hanger loop of the shower pouf over the top of your shower head, and you’re good to go!

Step Two: Sew the Mesh

After you’ve cut out your pouf shape from the mesh, it’s time to start sewing! You want to make sure that you leave a small opening at the top of the pouf so that you can turn it right side out when you’re finished. Once you’ve sewn all the way around, turn your pouf right side out and stuff it with polyfill. Sew the opening closed and voila! You’ve got yourself a shower pouf that will hold soap!

Step Three: Fill the Pouf

Now it’s time to give your shower pouf a good rinse and then fill it up with soap. You can use any type of soap that you like, but we prefer to use a natural, handmade soap. We think that shower poufs are the perfect way to use up those little slivers of soap that are left behind after using up a bar. Just add a few slivers to the pouf and you’re good to go!

If you’re not into DIY projects, you can also buy shower poufs online or at some stores. When buying a shower pouf, make sure that it is made out of mesh or another type of fabric that will allow water to pass through easily. You don’t want a pouf that is made out of sponge material because it will just absorb all of the water and soap and become heavy and difficult to use.

Step Four: Hang the Pouf

The fourth and final step is to hang your pouf in the shower so it can dry out between uses. You can use a suction cup hook or a Command hook to do this. Just make sure the hook can hold the weight of the wet pouf.

Using Your Pouf

Poufs are great for scrubbing yourself down in the shower, but they can also be used for other purposes around the bath. If you want to save money on buying body scrubs, you can make your own using a pouf. Simply add some sugar or salt to your pouf and start scrubbing! Poufs can also be used to wash your back or clean hard-to-reach places.

If you’re looking for an alternative to loofahs or mesh sponges, try using a pouf. Poufs are soft and gentle on the skin, making them ideal for people with sensitive skin. Plus, they’re great at lathering up soap!

Tips and Tricks

You can easily make shower poufs that hold soap using a few simple materials. All you need is a loofah, body wash, and a mesh sponge. To make the pouf, simply Wet the loofah with water and add a small amount of body wash. Then, Rub the loofah over the sponge to create suds. Once you have a good amount of suds, wet the pouf again and squeeze it to remove any excess water. You can then use the pouf to wash your body in the shower.

If you don’t have a loofah, you can also use a body wash cloth or a mesh sponge. These alternatives will work just as well as a loofah and will last just as long.


Bath poufs are one of those small, but mighty, luxuries that can make a shower feel so much more refreshing. But what exactly are they? A bath pouf is a small, round, fluffy ball made of material like nylon or polyester that’s filled with soap. You wet it, lather it up, and then use it to wash your body just like you would with a loofah or body sponge.


Some people prefer not to use traditional shower poufs because they can collect bacteria. Alternatives to traditional shower poufs include loofahs, sponges, and mesh scrubbers. You can make your own shower pouf by repurposing an old t-shirt or sock. Bath poufs are a great way to exfoliate your skin and get clean at the same time.
