A very nice gift

January 19, 2014


One of the presents I received this Christmas was a very nice set of natural body/facial scrubs that actually came with a personalized label. The lady who sells them must be doing something right, because they smell wonderful and the packaging can’t be beat. They are made from all-natural products – organic pure coconut oil, pure honey, lemon juice, granulated white sugar, vanilla extract – so I imagine they would also be delicious on toast.

I’m a fan of sugar scrubs, as I’ve said before, but I confess that I don’t use them in the shower because I’m worried that the residue will make the shower even dirtier than it already is. I clean the shower regularly (that is a total lie), and the thought of purposefully putting oily stuff in there is not going to make me clean it any more ‘regularly’. Or will it? Maybe this is the kick in the pants I need to scrub the tub.

That settles it. Come morning time, I’m scrubbing me, then scrubbing the tub. One of us is going to come out of this better for it.

    Perhaps you could invent a line of sugar scrubs for tubs, using all-natural ingredients. I prefer chemical-filled household cleaning products, but I’m sure there would be a market for cleaners that could be spread on toast.
    Dang it. I’m writing this comment on my phone, and I can’t link to the SNL skit about Shimmer floor wax.

    Those gifts are awesome!! So pretty!

    The only problem I have with some scrubs are they can make the tub slippery….and for a klutz like me, that can be disastorous!
