The Soap Tribune, Issue #149--to get through the soap
November 03, 2022

Buy in bulk

Last Saturday, while I was doing running the Ithaca Farmers Market booth, so many people stopped in to see me (Andy was elsewhere). It's always great to visit in a great setting. It was a lovely day on the waterfront.

So many of my visitors said the same thing...

It takes me forever to go through the soap! The bars last forever and the liquid soap also lasts a very long time.

This year, as we pay closer attention to the economy and where it's headed, more product for your spending dollars is key. You can buy in bulk and give useful gifts that go a long way, increasing the value of that gift.

House cleaning

The nights are cooler, and the days are getting shorter. We are spending more time indoors. That means more time spent cooking and cleaning.

One bag of Instant Liquid Soap, diluted to 2 gallons is an excellent soap to clean the house.

How to clean your stovetop using zero waste methods

When the weather is hot and steamy, like Us Northeast Summers can be, I make more raw foods, and live on salads. As temperatures drop, I cook more and plan my baking to make the house toasty warm and cozy.

This means my stove gets really dirty. Instant Liquid Soap easily cleans a greasy stovetop, using zero waste methods.

The bees had a tricky year keeping up with all of the weather anomalies. They are staying close to the hives and cleaning house. I know we got less honey.

Be nice to your bees. They take care of your food supply. bees.html
