Are you a camper?

When you're out on the trail, you want to be as close to nature as possible. Isn't that why you're camping? It's a sensory experience. Hearing the sounds of nature, smelling clean air, feeling the wind on your face, seeing and touching trees or sand, fresh or salt water.

How do you use soap when you are camping? Click the link below to get some tips on being the most eco friendly when you are camping.

If you love to camp, but are near a small city and don't want to be in a campground, check out our new soap host at Pine Forest Camp site.

Melons are in!

It's melon season here in Ithaca. cantaloupe, honeydew, and a nice selection of amazing varieties of those. My theme this summer is ice pops and dehydrating.

I definitely scrub melon rinds with soap and water, so not one speck of dirt touches the fruit as I cut into it.

I also added carrots to my sour pickles.

The Instant Liquid Soap diluted to the Waterless Hand Soap ratio makes the best fruit and vegetable wash.

The Ithaca Farmers Market is bursting with Summer bounty.



18 in 1 soap plus a whole lot more

The Instant Liquid Soap is very versatile. Here's the short list of uses.

Small business rocks!

Small groceries take the time to make the best local food and good selections to offer you. Step back in time (only a few years) and shop local in person.

Get some LiXTiK Lip Balm on your Woodstock NY visit. Phoenicia, NY is the next town and a hidden gem. The Nest Egg General Store has LiXTiK Lip Balm and Ithaca Soap Bars, plus a whole lot more.

There are some great spots to have lunch in Phoenicia, go for a hike, get a spa treatment at Menla Mountain Retreat, and go white water rafting on the Esopus River too.
