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.
The current stock of Bargain bags will include one shampoo bar (while stocks last - from November 6 2019). We've got a great new shampoo bar formula, but we're experimenting with moulds, pressing, hand pressing & proportions of ingredients to get the right consistency. We have to make lots of batches of these and we have a few superseded recipes with stock that we can't sell as first grade. These are great to use but not very pretty!
Should you buy a Bargain bag?
In a recent survey of customers
who purchase Bargain Bags:
90% purchase because of the price
70% said they like buying in bulk
60% like the variety
60% said they know all of them will be good
40% like bare soaps
The one downside of buying a bargain 
bag is that you don't know what
soaps are in your bag. For some 
people this is great - it's like
a surprise present each time you 
open your delivery.

If you prefer to know what range
your soaps are from, you can buy
bare boxes of 10 in each of our
ranges and choose the number of
each scent/type in your box.
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.

My only choice!

I have been purchasing soaps from Washpool for a number of years, and without fail, they are amazing. My skin reacts to a lot of commercial products, so I have to be quite careful. Melissa and the team make purchase seamless, and love the little surprise that seems to arrive each time. And it's great value for money!

Excellent product, excellent producer.

Choose this product if: - You don't mind which soaps you receive. - You don't have allergies/sensitivities that require you to know ingredients before use. - You want to support Australian owned and run small business. - You care how the environment is impacted by the consumer choices you make. - You want an excellent customer service experience. - You want a soap with fantastic performance and delicious scents - You want a product without unnecessary/extra packaging. Don't buy this product if: - You have a particular scent/product that must be included. Washpool in my experience run a fantastic operation of responsibly sourced and enthusiastically manufactured soaps that are on par (if not above) anything I have ever used. Customer service from this company is second to none, highly recommended.
