The Soap Tribune, Issue #213--how to do festival laundry
July 01, 2023

Summer means it's music festival season

Kick off of Summer music festivals with the right soap in your pack. Did you know that you can spot wash your favorite festival dress or shirt right there in your campsite?

This way, when you go through your clothes too quickly, because it's been hotter than you expected or you accidentally dripped something on your favorite festival dress, you can spot wash it with the best camping soap right there in your camp site.

Get your camping gear packed and your evening dance attire ready.

Bar soap and Instant Liquid Soap are essentials in my pack.

Treat your RV, campsite, and the natural places you choose to get away from it all, with the utmost care by using eco friendly soap.

Fresh picked lettuce

Whether it's fresh picked from your market or your garden, there is nothing like a fresh picked head of lettuce salad for lunch or dinner. Or get the most out of your green drink with fresh lettuce. You will never want to go back to a head of store bought lettuce. Once you've tasted fresh picked lettuce, you will not be able to deny that plastic packaged lettuce had been suffocated.

When you have a fresh picked head of lettuce, you will need to wash it well. Click the link below for lettuce washing instructions so your salads can be the very best. Honor your farm fresh lettuce by washing it well.

I always bring fresh picked lettuce when I travel in Summer. Pack it in a bucket of water with the roots intact, like a bouquet of flowers.

Time to plant your garden

My garden is spectacular this year. Its seems as if all of my soil enriching efforts are working.

Everything I have planted out early and have had under row cover are coming up strong and brilliant. Even my loofah seeds have all germinated.

My indoor cucurbit planting experiment went well and I germinated enough to fill in all of my sports with germinated seeds.

My hopi purple dye sunflowers sprouted and the chickens dug up and ate my African dye marigold seeds. My 2nd round of lettuce will fill in the spots where I've picked lettuce..

Our Tough Guy pumice soap is a great gardener's soap. It gently scrubs your hands, leaving them soft and clean after the work of planting your garden.
