Update on Laundry Soap Making

Okay, you may remember that a few months ago we were given the opportunity to use and review some items from Virginia Soaps and Scents (VS&S).  One of the items was homemade laundry soap.  We loved it, in case you were wondering.

Well, after that batch was over, i had decided that we would continue to make our own since i had already purchased the ingredients needed for such a project.  However, months into the new homemade soap, i feel the need to point out: it is not the same.  We purchased Fels-Naptha for our bar of soap because it is the commonly available bar of laundry soap that is in most recipes, and i am not nearly as satisfied with it as i was with the VS&S brand.

So, last month, when the batch ran out, i purchased the bar of laundry soap from VS&S and made another batch, and i am already happier. (you can buy the prepackaged laundry kit or just the bar of soap to go with your supplies) It smells way better, it feels nicer, and it cleans better.

Who knew?

Well, VS&S probably knew. {grin}

You should check 'em out for your soap needs.  They are all wonderful!  We have now ordered (and are using) their Pet Poo (pet shampoo), Kiddiwink soap (hair and body bar for kids), many varieties of bar soap (favorite is Oatmeal, Milk & Honey), Lady's Shave Bar, Shampoo Bar (i love this!!), lotion bar (takes some getting used to, but it is a winner!), and Lip Balm.  I can't wait to place my next order: i always try something new!
