You just bought some good, natural handcrafted soap. Now what? How do you get the most out of your purchase? Here are few tips for making that bar of soap last.
- Never, ever leave the bar sitting where the shower spray can hit it. Just don’t
- Keep the bar from sitting in water. You know how wrinkly you get when you sit too long in water? Well it isn’t a pretty sight for your soap bar either. You get wrinkly, the soap gets soft. It’s just a bad deal all around.
- If you really want to keep that soap for as long as possible, put it on a draining soap dish or a soap saver*. This will allow your soap to dry out between uses. Your soap loves this.
- Realize that if you are going crazy with a scrubby or loofah when you bathe, the soap will go faster. Some folks think the crazy bubbly experience is worth it. Hey it’s your shower, I’m not saying anything.
- You can use a soap net. This is a nice compromise for the afore-mentioned bubble addicts. The soap net will bubble up, but it keeps all that lovely soap intact and ready for your next soapy encounter.
We also get questions on how to use the dog soap. Use it just like you would use a bar of soap on yourself; washcloth, scrubby, straight bar on skin/fur.
Now let’s examine the differences between our bar soap and the liquid soap.
Liquid soap goes on in one spot in a big gob. This might be okay if you happen to have a dog that is only dirty in one spot on his or her back…pause for hysterical laughter…but really what are the odds of that being the case EVERY TIME YOU WASH YOU DOG? Our bar soap makes it easy to spread the cleaning evenly to all parts of your dog, also making the bar great for spot cleaning (see how that works?
Liquid soap is hard to rinse out. Your dog jumps out of the tub, the bathroom is streaming with excess dog water, and you are still not done with the bath. Hate that. Our dog soap rinses clean, no extra soap on Fido’s skin and coat, less streaming dog water in your bathroom
Liquid soap is full of chemicals and preservatives. Our soap has no chemicals for preservatives. Instead we have oatmeal to soothe dry, itchy skin, Neem oil to which has a high level of antioxidants and fatty acids. The Neem penetrates the outer layers of your pet’s skin making it an effective way to heal dryness and damage. The final component that makes our dog soap so great is Goat’s milk. Goat’s milk provides nutrients and creates a creamy thick lather. A trifecta of doggy goodness!
We have also found that keeping a supply of treats handy when giving our dog a bath goes a long way toward making the experience pleasant for all participants.
So there you have it. A couple of ways to make our good soap last longer, and some tips on keeping your pet clean and happy.
Bathe on my friends, bathe on.
