She Puts a Bar of Soap Under Her Sheet. The Reason Why is Genius!

We have talked extensively about restless leg syndrome and leg cramps in previous posts. Basically, these are conditions that occur at night when you are trying to go to sleep. They can be extremely painful and frustrating to deal with. This is especially true if someone just wants to rest.

Restless leg syndrome is a neurological disorder that produces unpleasant feelings in the legs while a person is resting. The root cause of restless leg syndrome is unknown, but there are some situations that have been linked to the issue. These include kidney failure, diabetes, alcohol consumption, medication use, and pregnancy.

Nightly leg cramps, or charley horses, are also a common problem people have as they are falling asleep. However, unlike restless leg syndrome, moving the leg while it is cramping will not reduce the discomfort. Instead, it will increase the pain significantly. Leg cramps normally occur because of excessive exercise, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, and dehydration.

There are some things you can do to stop both restless leg syndrome and leg cramps from happening at night. Some of these include massages, a warm bath or shower, drinking enough water, and eating right. However, there is one simple thing you can do TONIGHT that will stop restless leg syndrome and leg cramps.

Put a bar of soap under your sheet!

That’s right. About 42% of people who suffer from leg cramps or restless leg syndrome use this weird soap trick to stop the problem. Why does it work? Doctors are not sure, but some believe that the magnesium in the soap stops the problem. That is because magnesium deficiency is a leading cause of both restless leg syndrome and leg cramps.

Dr. Oz suggests lavender soap because it helps to relax the muscles with its natural scent. I agree. If you are going to put soap in your bed, make it natural with an essential oil-based scent.

    As I stated above, I put it under my fitted sheet to keep my Chihuahua from licking it. It stays put there.

why can’t you just rub your legs with the soap before bed and then not have a hard block of soap in your bed, poking at your leg muscles whenever you switch posistions in your sleep?

    I don’t know about muscle cramps but for RLS you can do just that. Works for me when my meds aren’t enough.

Didn’t do a dang thing for my leg cramps!! Increasing my magnesium supplement did work. Be sure to get a type that doesn’t cause diarrhea! And if I have forgotten doses so that my magnesium level has dropped & I
get some more cramping episodes, I stop those episodes in just a minute or 2 & am free of them the rest of the night by using Hyland’s Leg Cramps. It’s a homeopathic that you take under your tongue. It has worked every single time I’ve used it!

Works for me! I know, it’s crazy! I was jumping out of bed at LEAST once EVERY night because I had a cramp in my calf. Since I have the bar of soap (I used a bar of Dove under my fitted sheet because my Chihuahua sleeps with us and I didn’t want him to lick it), I have only had to jump out of bed one night in the last 2 months!! If I feel a cramp coming on, I rub my calf over the soap and it goes away! I don’t know why it works, but if certainly does work for me.
(BTW, I was taking magnesium and using magnesium lotion, eating a banana daily and drinking plenty of water previously, but none of that helped.)

I had bad foot cramps in the daytime more than I did at night for several years. I learned about soap under the sheet about 10 years ago and very rarely have had a cramp since.
