Good bar soap is an essential as a whole body soap wash. It's economical, luxurious, and effective. When selecting a bar of soap, look for simple ingredients with pleasing essential oil aromas and lots of sudsy lather. Sudsing all the way down to a sliver, over 3-4 months of daily use, is key in good bar soap. Try Ithaca Soap

Since she was a tiny 2 day old chick, Goldie wanted to live in our coop, otherwise known as our house. When Archie, the rooster we intentionally bought, pulled out too many of Goldie's feathers and drew blood on her crest, we thought she wouldn't last the night in the coop with the flock. When they see red, especially blood, they all instinctively turn from sweet chicks into killers. She recuperated in a cage in our mudroom for about 6 weeks. Cleaning up every day after her was a task for the Liquid Soap Refill.

Hello, I am really trying to purchase more environmentally conscious products. However, I followed the directions for the mixture and find it very watery. I use a loofa to wash with and put a squirt of the solution...which goes right thru with no suds. Perhaps the soap bar is a better solution for me.

soap and money
How much soap money does a shower cost you?
Let's say you spend $3.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.43 per shower.
For your next bar of soap, you spend $8.50. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.15 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers.
