Good Clean Fun

bathtime fun
It is nearly impossible to go into a public place without being bombarded with hand sanitizer, warnings to wash our hands, and the clean patrol on duty at all times. Getting dirty is a rarity but getting and staying clean is a constant.

Our Daily Green is reluctant (for a whole minute) to haul out proclamations how it wasn't that way when we were kids. We got good and dirty and getting clean was half the fun. Bubbles, shampoo hair designs, washing the dirt down the drain and leaving behind a ring, all part of our bathtime ritual.

Over the years, the fun has literally been drained out of getting clean. Getting clean is a duty and obligation, even in a world where no kid seems to truly get dirty.

Then Washy Squashy soap debuted. It's even fun to say! It's up there with splish splash in the fun department of words. This whimsical product takes the dirge out of getting clean and makes it fun. Washy Squashy sculpting soap is moldable and pliable made from organic ingredients, free of toxins, triclosan, or artificial scents or dyes.

Unfortunately, the product didn't arrive in time for our visit, but we asked our teenagers to have some fun with the soap, and we passed along the package to our little ones, whose mother reports they are very excited to play with it!

The sculptures pictured were crafted by my teenagers, and include a giraffe, turtle, snail, alligator, and hot dog. Yes, soap that looks like a hot dog. But smells much different! Washy Squashy is scented with organic botanical oils, and comes in lemon, vanilla, berry, orange, apple and mint.

It lathers nicely and smells incredible. The soap was a bit sticky, but it washed right off, as it is supposed to! Did we mention how much fun it was? Made me want to go make mudpies just so I could get clean.
