I’m Cheap (maybe conservative?)
Cars of beauty: 1982 Dodge Aries
I am cheap and old fashioned.
Do you use soap in the way ‘god’ (little g) created it, as a bar? My Sherry uses some fancy stuff in a bottle. (Now I will admit, she does smell and FEEL great after a shower.) She also uses shampoos and rinses and stuff.
I was taught things the RIGHT (or Marine) way early from a DI on Parris Island. “You don’t need that girly shampoo crap, there ain’t room in your pack for it. WE Marines use a bar of soap! That works for any cleaning. If you are tough enough you can brush your teeth with it.” (I never got that tough! LOL)
It has been ‘hinted’ that using soap vs shampoo on my hair ‘killed’ the roots. LOL. If that were true my mama should have been bald; she used lye soap for years. :-O
WE do have pump soap at every sink and vanity. I use that most times for my hands. BUT, what brought this subject up is my hand soap. I noticed during my last shower my soap is 4 colors.
I am not dedicated to any hand soap brand. The last I bought was Dial, it was the least expensive. As my bar wears down to a sliver, I mold it into my new bar. I have changed colors 4 times now and have them all. LOL Yep I do buy the cheapest soap.
Up until I was 6 we used mama’s home-made lye soap. Somehow she used hog fat in making it. I think that because soap making was right at hog killing time. Mama & daddy cut the big soap hunks into bars of all shapes using the butcher knife.
As a kid in a tin tub and later in a bath tub, I liked Ivory because it floated like a boat, lye soap did not.. LOL
We are set up at Green Mountain, near Lenoir NC. We have a great sight, a little rain and about 70 degrees. One small incident. I backed into a tree and put some 'character' in our roof ladder. Things like this I can handle and repair, not a big problem, backing 6 more inches would have been a problem LOL.
Be Safe and live well.
