Summary: British fictional piece on the need to save soap and other fats, 1918.
Description: A young girl works cleaning the kitchen floor of a house. When she has finished she tosses the soap and cloth into the sink, which is full of water. The cook tells her, gently, that the soap will waste if left in water and is made of fats which are scarce. Later, the girl returns home to find her father shaving. She calls her mother and explains what she has been told, and produces a soap dish for her father to use.
