Hitting the Right Spots (and Stains)

Despite its name, there's nothing ridiculous about this no-nonsense, stain-removing soap bar that, aside from working magic in the laundry room as a spot treatment, should also feel right at home next to the kitchen sink as an non-drying hand scrub for gardeners, grease monkeys, kids, and anyone prone to getting their hands nice and dirty. Made from a colorful blend of natural soaps and scrub-ready cornmeal, this big ol' chunk of glycerin-rich soap is effective at removing grass and food stains, along with bubble gum (ack!), blood, chocolate, grease, ink, and set-in mildew. And while there's a portly porker pictured on the packaging, Hogwash! is free of animal byproducts along with petroleum-based ingredients. Made in Minetto, New York.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Gary & Karen Austin

We started making soaps 28 years ago for our son Aaron Taylor. As a baby, he could not tolerate any of the bath products on the market. As a result, Gary decided to try making our own soap for him. Many recipes were still too harsh, so he developed his own process for a pure, natural and kind soap for him. The results were amazing! Our soaps and cremes are hypo-allergenic and still created with only edible ingredients so they can be safely used on newborns. We NEVER test on animals and we NEVER will. We are one of the pioneers of the "green" movement -- "green" since 1982!

Awesome product!

Comments about HOGWASH SOAP:

Just used this product to clean clothes that were inadvertently put into the dryer with an errant RED crayon. We moistened the clothes and rubbed the spots with the Hogwash Soap bar. A little elbow grease and rinsing and the red spots were completely gone! To add to that, I had been cleaning rusty old cast iron pans by hand all week and my hands were embarrassingly stained. After I finished cleaning the above mentioned clothes, I was amazed at how incredibly clean my hands and fingernails were. Yet they still feel soft. This is the best product I have come across in a very long time.

        I sent the soap to my cousin along with the Divorce Celebration kit you had on clearance. It was symbolic of a fresh start, in addition to being practical for her new home. She liked the name, appearance and its multi cleaning purpose.
