As a gardener, I want my plants to have the best chance to grow. I spend time to loosen and fertilize the soil and carefully bury my seeds/bulbs. I make sure my flowerbeds are watered and weeded too. Gardening is not a clean hobby, but my hands don’t have to reflect that all day. I created Grime Away Soap with pumice and grits to gently remove grime.  It gets the dirt stains off my hands, leaves them soft and smooth and ready to go out in public!

What is Lye Soap?

Lye Soap is a soap made of lye, water, and lard.  When they are combined, they go through a process called saponification.  (It’s a chemical reaction, just like in chemistry class.)  These components go in, and soap comes out. Our bar looks like this:  

Lye soap has been around for generations.  For instance, when people only bathed Saturday nights before church, it was their grandmother’s lye soap they used.  The grandmother’s ingredients were the things available, the animals from out back and the lye from wood ashes.  Their mixture was not always precise making some batches stronger than others.  We’ve made a few improvements since the last hundred years and now we have an exact recipe for what we sell.  No need to worry about a change in grandma’s batch of soap, I will take care of it.
