Today's post is probably one that'll please my Mum if she gets round to checking it. It's all about soap. Soap is really important for me for 3 main reasons:
- I don't like having dirty hands (and never have)
- First aid - check out the article on a budget survival kit by Kurt Hoffman
- Basic Hygene
On the wrapper it explains (in a wide variety of slavic languages) that is is for hands, families and clothes and is also biodegradeable. As it is nature friendly and hard it will fit well in a pack. I'm going to chop a bar up so I can keep a bit in my first aid kit and some in my possibles bag with all the other fun bits.
I've always liked to keep some soap with me - when I used to reenact I carried a bar of soap as I found out it was important to my morale. This soap is fine for most uses I've tried so far. It makes dirty hands clean, with a brush you can get a good lather for shaving (takes some time though) and it doesn't cause any funny reactions. The one problem is that it is unscented and doesn't really smell that nice!
