Sometimes things happen in the soap kitchen - like the time I added purple clay to the neroli batch instead of the lavender batch.  Oops. 

Other times, it's a creative choice that we're not 100% happy with - like the time we added green tea leaves to the top of a bar. While they looked lovely, when the petite leaves were touched by water they unfurled into giant leaves, looking more like large pieces of kelp than green tea. Err- if you get one of these beautiful bars filled with shea & cacao butter, just scrape the leaves off before use. Easy.
 
Then there are the bars at the end of each log - all added into seconds for no crime other than being a little rustic on one side. Or the particularly lovely bars made by Melissa when demonstrating colour techniques using natural additives in our soap making classes.
 
Finally, there are the overstocks. The bars that for whatever reason we made too much of.  These are some of the best to receive because they've had a nice long cure and they're hard, mild and long-lasting.
 
All are based on our usual high-quality ingredients - extra virgin olive oil, cacao butter, macadamia, shea butter. Some have goat's milk, some coconut cream. Most are scented with pure essential oils. 
 
The contents of each bag will vary but will always be a minimum of 1000 grams.
 
The image below shows a stack of 9 regular sized bars on the left of the scales, and 6 specialty bars on the right that each add up to around 1kg. This works out value wise to around $4 a standard bar in these bargain bags.
  • Value of regular bars = 9 x $5.00-$6.00 = $45.00 - $54.00
  • Value of specialty bars = 6 x $9.50 = $57.00

These bargain bags sell out often, but we cut bars at least once a week and restock the shelves. If there are none available online check back in a couple of days or choose "Notify Me" to be sent an email when we restock.

Because these bars are often restocked they are usually very fresh and could do with a few weeks sitting in your linen cupboard to "cure" (read more about curing and why we cure for several weeks). Bonus: they'll impart a lovely scent to your sheets & towels.

Bought these soaps several weeks back and held off on reviewing so I could get a sense of a couple of the bars. -The soaps are fantastic, great scents, easily lathered and last a fair while. It's nice to be able to buy a product that is good for the environment and support small Aussie business. -The team at Washpool are fantastic, my order was shipped promptly and they followed up with me about a query I had, going above and beyond. As far as I am concerned the customer service offered by Washpool is second to none. -While you may be paying a little extra for a product (Compared to mass produced soaps) I would argue that the cost is more than offset by the quality and origin of the products, the outstanding customer service provided and the ability to support small Australian businesses. Highly recommended.

Purchased this after the kids & I used up all my husbands 3 in 1. I was happily surprised with the variety included, it's a perfect way to try out different soaps if you aren't fussy - will definitely buy again.
