A bar of soap works for me. I used to place the soap underneath the fitted sheet on the bed but found that every time you move, the soap moves too so it doesn't remain under your legs for long. My daughter (who also has RLS) suggested wearing socks with a piece of soap in them and this has worked great! I also occasionally have RLS in my arms (RAS??), so I moisten the inside of the wrist area and rub some soap on them before going to bed. I'm sure this doesn't work for everyone, but it's worth giving it a try (and cheap!).
