Ithaca Soap-bar soap!
Ithaca Soap bar soap comes in the perfect 5 oz. size
Ithaca Soap brand bar soaps are made with organic sunflower oil grown by US farmers, organic coconut oil and 100% essential oils. They are cut and cured in our sunny Ithaca, NY factory.
17CS-Ithaca Soap bar soap is filled with love and goodness. These bars will always lather you up all the way down to the sliver and never spoil or turn to mush. Simply store bars not in use out of direct sunlight.
Our soap is made by our expert soap maker, Andy, in our palm oil free facility. It's real soap. Not something dreamed up in a chemical company meeting room made with ingredients that come with poison control warnings.
Sunflower oil is high in antioxidant vitamin E, coconut oil is the skin's fountain of youth, both of which are nourishing for your skin. The boxes are manufactured in NYS from pre-consumer factory waste. That's it!
We still make the Pure Plain Soap and call it Unscented Soap now.
Hand washing instructions for delicate fibers:
Our bar and liquid soap is great for washing wool and silk. I am a textile artist and work with a lot of wool and silk fabric, yarn and roving. I use natural plant based dyes and am also a wet felter. Our soap is gentle enough to leave the integrity of the fibers, but strong enough to clean.
Here’s how I wash my fibers:
1. Fill a sink or wash basin with cool - warm ish water, swishing around the soap to get good suds.
2. Place in garments, making sure there is enough water for the fabric to swish around freely. If the suds get eaten up immediately, your garments are a little dirtier than you thought (wool can be like that) and you may want a little more soap. Soak for 30-60 minutes and swish around 1 or 2 times.
3. Drain, squeeze garments, fill basin again with cool ish water, swish around. Repeat this 2-5 times to get all of the soap out.
4. Fill basin 1 more time and add some white vinegar - anywhere from 1/4 c to 2 c depending on how much fiber you are washing at one time. Add your rinsed garments, swish around and let soak for 10 minutes. Rinse again.
5. Squeeze out all excess water. Lay a towel on the floor, lay garments in the towel, roll up and gently step on it to get out all of the water. Dry either laying flat or hanging depending on the garment.
