    If you have Charley Horses at night, try putting a bar of soap near your legs. My friend had them nightly until we were told about the soap. She initially used an old bar of soap but it didn’t work. After she scrapped the top coating off, it worked. She hasn’t had one since and it has been weeks. I was told there is something in soap it releases that prevents them.
