Irish Spring Soap Over the Years: A Shrinking Soap Bar?

Irish Spring Soap Over the Years: A Shrinking Soap Bar?

I’ve been loyal to Irish Spring (shower) Soap since my parents washed me with it as a child. In my opinion, there’s an invigorating and indescribable feeling after washing yourself with Irish Spring and getting into clothes. When I was a young, I remember going to the store and buying single boxes of Irish Spring soap to cover me for the week. Today, more than 30 years later, I still buy and use the ‘original’ Irish Spring soap brand.

At the time of this post, our Irish Spring box prints 3.75 OZ (106.3g) assuming this is the net weight of the soap bar. And the verdict…

The weight is accurate on our soap bar! Surprising, but we were happy to learn it is in fact advertised.


Now Irish Spring, can we get bigger bars back like we used to have?
