I was going to post this under violin care, but couldn't find it. Any way, here it is:

 I have known this fact of bar soap long ago but just came up with this idea:

Bar soap could contro humidity: it release its moisture into air when the air is dry and trap the moisture in it when it is humid. So how about putting a piece of (used) bar soap in a violin case for your violin for humidity control? Although i have never done any test to (like using a hydrometer) to see how it effective it is.

Thanks for the idea, PKY! I'll try it as soon as i'll get a hydrometer.

For those of you, guys, who already has one: if you'll test it, please, tell about the results! =)
