The Soap Tribune, Issue #137-the best harvest is from a farmers market
August 27, 2022

Small business rocks!

Small business is the life blood of every community. We were hot hard these last couple of years for various reasons. Remember to support your small business, shop at your local farmers market, and get as much of your daily supplies from the independent Mom and Pops.

Come to the Ithaca Farmers Market this weekend and visit us in booth 6. We are a community of 200 small businesses. It's the local economy in motion.

If you can't make it to Ithaca this weekend, make sure you reap the local bounty at a farmers market near you.


Hot Peppers- time for a salsa party

I did a crazy thing and bought a 20lb box of mixed hot peppers at The Ithaca Farmers Market! I am air drying about half of them, fermenting about 30% of them and I had roasted hot pepper paste with the rest!

My hands were HOT! I thought, oh no... I'm not going to sleep well tonight. But it didn't last long, because I washed my hands often and thoroughly while making all of these hot pepper delights.

The Instant Liquid Soap diluted to the Waterless Hand Soap ratio makes the best fruit and vegetable wash.

The Ithaca Farmers Market is bursting with Summer bounty.




Everyone LOVES the Free Foaming Pump

We got these foaming pumps so I can have On the Go Soap when I do sampling and demos, and for our Ithaca Farmers Booth. So far, I am so pleased with them. The pump cap fits a standard glass small mouth Mason jar size or a mayo jar headed for the recycling. The pumps fit a 16 or 32 oz. jar.

We are giving them away free until Sept. 1, 2022 with any Instant Liquid Soap 4 or 8 quart purchase.

But for you subscribers, we are also offering them free with any $50.00 purchase. If you already have Instant Liquid soap and want one of these foaming pumps, type "Free Pump Please" in the notes section of the shopping cart. The expiration date for your special offer is Oct. 1, 2022

It's been so hot and dry, that the bees that live at my house, slowed way down for a few weeks. They didn't make new hives like they normally do, so the bee numbers are down for the season. According to our bee keeper, the bees had a difficult Spring and Summer. Please plant a garden and stop using insecticide. bees.html
