What is a loofah?

I have challenged myself in the green this year many times. One of those challenges is growing loofah sponges.

new store

I moved the online store. There were a few bumps and snags. There is still a lot to do.However, it is there, live, and I have already gotten some compliments on it!

The good news is, I will have a brand new state of the art website, when I finish building it. You should have no trouble accessing it, since the address is the same as usual.

Please visit the new store, serf around, and let me know what you think. The blog section of the website should be unchanged.

Thank you for listening and supporting us! We really appreciate you.

Ithaca Soap

3 reasons

Let's all put our heads together and put a stop to manufacturing liquid soap and packaging it in plastic bottles.

I made a little marketing ad and put it all over my social media. If you know anyone in the soap manufacturing industry ( a company, let's say about 5k times bigger than us, lol), casually mention that you have the answer to the pressing plastic bottle issue in the personal care industry.

The soap industry is trying to catch up to the latest trends. Be ahead of the curve. Use Instant Liquid Soap.
