The Soap Tribune, Issue #200--Mother's Day coupon
May 11, 2023

Mother's Day coupon 25% off

Last year was the last Mother's Day my sister and I spent with our mom. It was a nice day. We got her favorites from Chinese takeout for lunch. It was a really sunny and warm day.

We talked and remembered life stories from long ago. She even told us something we didn't know. My mom was 94 and we thought we knew all of the stories.

My parents met at a dance. My dad's best friend wanted to leave, so my dad scanned the room, to make sure there was no one he wanted to ask to dance. My mom was the Wall Flower. He asked her to dance and that was it. We heard the story a million times from both of them. The part we didn't know, was that the dance was at Coney Island. He walked her home and they stayed up all night talking outside on the front stoop.

Use the coupon code shrimpwithlobstersauce in the checkout for 25% off all orders.

This coupon is good through 5/14/23 midnight est.

Apple cider Vinegar for Hair

When you make the switch from SLS shampoo products to a natural shampoo bar, it is critical to do an apple cider vinegar hair detox.

What this means, is you are simply removing the artificial greases in hair conditioners that stay on your hair.

Apple cider vinegar also helps with dandruff issues, split ends, and gives you a little bit more shine.

I like to do an apple cider vinegar detox 2-3 times a year. Andy does one every 1-2 months.

Sourdough Bread

Over the last 18 months, I have been teaching myself to make sourdough bread. It's all about the starter and your flour.

If you are a baker and want to perfect your skills, join me on this journey. I have updated the technique and recipe to get great bread!


Water Conservation efforts

Many liquid soaps, natural or synthetic are thickened with a liquid vinyl gel, known as a poly acrylic acid. It is designed to expand many times its size when it absorbed water and swells.

Instant Liquid Soap is an easy way to pitch in in the world wide water conservation efforts.

Instant Liquid Soap

How to exfoliate your skin

What does exfoliation mean? Exfoliation is the action of removing dead skin cells and dirt build up on the skin's surface, thereby promoting new skin cell growth. New skin cell growth deep cleans the skin.
