Soap will harden as it dries. 
If you keep your soap by your sink for hand washing, they will last a long time. My kids mainly use them in the shower or for hand washing! If you let the kids use these in the bathtub, they might last for a few baths if they are soaked in the tub for any length of time. Note: Ivory soap is not tear free. 
A fresh bar of Ivory soap works best. Soap that is a year old is too brittle and won't grate as easily as fresh soap.
