"These Socks Smell Like Butt"

I have noticed lately that some of the major detergent companies are promoting what we have known all along, exercise and athletic clothing need special attention. Two things stand out: 1. Exercise clothes are expensive. Our handmade soaps have NO added fillers, such as salt. These additives are destructive to athletic gear. 2. They also can smell really bad!!! Having four sons of my own... three of whom are currently involved in athletics at a college level, I am thrilled by the results achieved with our peppermint laundry soap. No more stinky socks! Peppermint has been used anciently by many cultures, because of its extremely useful health promoting properties. It helps the respiratory system and is an antiseptic, to name a few.

  1. I love the peppermint soap! It's powerful. The other day I made a peppermint vinegar rinse to use in my towels, socks, etc. I filled a bottle with vinegar and added about 10 drops peppermint essential oil. I keep it near my washing machine and add a small cup to the rinse cycle. Not only does it ensure a clean rinse but it softens and makes my laundry smell extra good.
