After re-reading the initial post I realized your problem, Monty. Here is the quote:

BEARGLOVE IS THE FRESH, CONFIDENT SCENT THAT DEMANDS RESPECT AND THEN EATS IT


The reason your girlfriend's body wash didn't work was that you used it topically. I think (if I read it right) you're supposed to ingest it?


D'oh!

But, c'mon, be a Real ManTM: 5 parts congealed bacon grease or other fat, 2 parts lye, heat it until it melts then turn off the heat, stir it around along with 1 part separated milk solids to help it harden as it cools.


When my mother would buy a side of beef or a hindquarter, she would ask the butcher for the fat he trimmed off. Then, she would mix it with lye to make lye soap, sometimes adding oil of citronella. It was pretty good soap although since she molded it in plastic tubs each bar had an irregular shape.

Lifebuoy, Camay, Shield, were popular in the states. Knight's Castile was around too, but as I recall it was 'special' for people with allergies or something.

I've heard of Coal Tar soap but have never seen it or used it.

Coal Tar is still popular in the UK, I occasionally use it. Quite a strong medicinal smell. But good, strong stuff. In fact, its Wright's I use. Tends to be sold as 'traditional soap', as its been used since the Victorian era.

You mean to tell me Lava isn't meant as a body or face soap? But, truth be told there have been times where after working on a car or multiple cars all day I ended up using it as one(face and body soap). Coarse I am known to mess with the Metrosexuals heads at grocery stores and rub my hands or face with pineapples.

Let's see... ah yes a real mans guide to basic personal hygiene.

WD-40 also doubles as spray on deodorant..
Lava Soap, all you need cleanses both the face and body(as I said there have been a few times).
Laundry Detergent makes great shampoo.
Motor Oil is outstanding skin moisturizer.
Dremmel/Rotary tools are fantastic for not only manicures but also pedicures(it's true try it).
Hand Held electric sanders are outstanding in getting dead skin of your heals(just be careful, but it does work).
Heat Guns are amazing hair dryers, just be careful with that one...

Hollywood told me that everyone was dirty continuously in that era and before, except for the fair maidens who took baths by the river while the horses drank.

Stimulated? It removed it!

If I used a curse word, blasphemous word, or racial slur the taste and gritty after-taste of Lava was the consequence.

Lava=pumice.

I used to keep Lava around; there are times you really need to S-c-r-u-b. These days, GoJo as the solvent and a brillo pad if I really need to "scrub".

Mouthful of soap? Such as saying out loud what P.o.n.t.i.a.c stands for? (12 or 13 yo at the time). It was either Ivory or Dove, can't recall. ONE of those two was notorius for leaving film on bathtubs in the '70s, and it was that one. And of course, it was my "chore" to clean it. F###in' A, man.

TRUE STORY: Early '70s, for whatever reason Ivory soap bars were popular for carving in Art class. I carved a handgun, and then got 'extra credit' for doing a "show and tell" about how John Dillinger once escaped from a local jail by doing the same thing.

THOSE WERE THE DAYS, when kids were rewarded for knowing local history, and being creative, and such.

THESE DAYS? Such a kid would probably put every school in Morgan County Indiana and 3 counties around into "lockdown".

Mooresville, Indiana. Home of John Dillinger. And "Arnold the Pig" from Green Acres.

No wonder everything tasted like Tide..
True story, years back when I was in Basic(Army) one of the guys ran out of soap and just said hell with it and used some tied until he was able to get to the exchange and pick some up.

One of my favorite tricks for getting tough stains out of clothing is the following:
Lava Soap, scrub brush, scalding hot water.
Rub the brush against the Lava Soap as to fill the bristles, then get the bristles wet with the scalding water and scrub away.
Coarse, due to the scalding water some caution is recommended. I discovered this trick when I was working on the P trap of the shower and ended up spraying putrid water on some laundry and had to get some stains out some clothes. Goop hand cleaner is also real useful with this trick as well.
Also, this works for getting a lot counter, floor and carpet type stains out as well. To the best of my knowledge neither Lava or Goop hand cleaner will stain or discolor stuff, at least if you rinse it out right away.

When I worked for my Dad on the cable tool drilling rig he washed his work clothes by setting a five gallon bucket filled with water and Tide soap on the edge of the forge. He would put his dirties in, bring it to a boil and then use a stick to agitate the soap, water and clothes to pound out the grease and oil. Worked fine.

I have cleaned up at quitting time using gasoline to remove grease from my hands and arms nearly every day.

I had never heard of it but apparently, it's very popular. Even Amazon sells some of their products. I would try it but it appears that they don't sell liquid soap, only bars. I prefer the liquid because it's less wasteful and I absolutely hate chasing after those tiny soap slivers.

I was never a fan of liquid soap, but will use it in a pinch.

This place is about 25 minutes from Binghamton, NY. They have chickens wandering out front, one of those sleepy cats inside, and a dog that greets you when you open the door. The cell phone service is sparse to non existent. I go a few times a year and stock up on soap and honey.

It sounds like a fun place to visit for the atmosphere and the products but as 25 minutes from Binghamton is hundreds of miles from here, I probably won't get there.

This Old Spice 'commander' is sure to smell better than the Johnson's Baby Powder and Pampers this person uses.
