How to clean a greasy stovetop

Did you know that natural soap cleans your kitchen appliances better than detergents?

Dispose food debris and kitchen grease in your compost bin, without all of the toxic fumes or dry hands that result from "cleaning fluids".

Make cleaning your kitchen fun with the Liquid Soap Refill. We are working on a new package that will be easier to use and is compostable. Photos and videos (!!) coming soon.


How to hand wash dishes

Using less water and energy to hand wash your dishes can be relaxing and a great time to catch up on your favorite podcast how-to-hand-wash-dishes.html

It's time to work in the garden

Next week, all of my seedlings move to the garden. My fabulous tomato plants and some of my lettuce varieties are all started from seeds I saved. I have kale seeds growing for next year's crop and new kale for Andy to enjoy as chips.

I also collected potato seeds last year, which are sprouting! Potato seeds are a new adventure for me. I've discovered that potato seeds make new varieties!

Get your hands dirty and see if you can grow a salad, some french fries, or a tomato sandwich!

Keep your garden tool basket stocked with Waterless Hand Soap, which is on sale for 30% off, a Lavender Mint Calendula Stik, and lip balm, so your hands are easily cleaned, stay soft, and your lips are protected from too much sun.

Small business rocks!

Menla Mountain Retreat is a great escape to the Catskill Mountains. Plus, all of the soap throughout the whole retreat is our Instant Liquid Soap. Take a break from your busy life, get a massage, eat the local food that they grow. It's a beautiful place. If you need a little excitement you can go to Woodstock, which is the next town.
