Since When is Washing Your Hands Fun?

I took some great shots of Trisha's soap this am. The problem is that I can't seem to download them from the camera. Never fear, Gerry will be home soon to save the day. Tomorrow should be a full blown Suds to Love~fest.

Meanwhile, I need to take a moment to share the joy of Foaming Hand Wash. What? You think that's lame and boring? No! Let me tell you about the joy to be had from the simple "task" of washing your hands!

I am a huge hand washer. In my previous life I worked in Food Service (aren't you glad I washed my hands??). For the past 12 years I've been a mom. We all know what kind of things end up on a mom's hands... not so good! So, it's always been one of those things that I've done 20-25 times a day. In fact, when we built our house, the contractors made fun of me because we installed 8 sinks in the house. You can say OCD if you want~it might be a little true. ;)

I used to use lots of Bath & Body Works hand wash. I was addicted to the different fragrances. However, they dried the life out of my hands. Fast forward 6 or 7 years and I've discovered the joy of making Foaming Hand soap in my favorite fragrances. I love the silky feel and the awesome foam! They Vitamin E & Aloe keep my hands from turning dry & yucky. Plus, it's so great to take five minutes to enjoy the amazing fragrances and pretty view out my window! I swear, just a few moments of pleasure in a hectic day are really a gift. Try it... you'll see what I mean!

My favorite summer fragrances are; Blackberry Sage, Vacation, Tuscan Summer & (of course) Pamplemousse. Oh, and don't forget the DragonSlayer or Pink Princess for your kiddos! Let's work together to keep their little mitts clean! Available at Etsy, the best deal is 4/$20 !

The 4/$20 sure is a great deal...that's why I got it! ;) I have Dragonslayer at the full-bath sink that my boys use (I use it too), and the Lemon Basil in the laundry room sink. Mmmm

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one about the hand washing! You should see me when I cook (especially with raw meat, makes DH laugh!). I'm glad I know what causes my skin allergies and that using my own soap, I don't have problems any more.

You certainly have a flair for making hand washing fun! What a deal! The scents sounds wonderful too.

Does the Pamplemousse in the handwashing foamy stuff smell just like the soap??
