Bob is right on. Mutton tallow and lanolin makes amazing soap (shave soap as well, but that's a story for another thread). I love the Electric Sheep during the summer.

BadDad make sure you keep them dry when not in use, and don't leave them sitting in a puddle or in the shower stream. That will definitely help keep them lasting longer. They aren't milled and there are no detergents to harden them, so they will go faster if they get soggy. Also, using a loofah, sponge, or washcloth rather than going directly to skin will also extend the life. A cheap-o loofah will make them last for weeks, and will also make them lather like crazy.


LONG LIVE THE SHEEP!

I know I am talking about shave soaps and not bath, but I should add that Rod's sheep soaps have absolutely saved my face in the winter time. In gets so dry in MN, you feel like you will crack open and bleed out if you shave one more time. These soaps help SO much.

I ordered three large bath soaps from Sudsy Soapery recently. I'm only into a few showers with my first, a very nice oatmeal goats milk bar that lathers nicely and smells great. This brand is my first foray into artisan soaps. Based on this thread, I'll be checking out Stirling next.

I'd like to hear if electric sheep helps keep the summer time mosquitoes and gnats away.

Cool label - the title to the novel by Phillip K. Dick that the movie Blade Runner is based on is Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Pretty sure that's where Rod got his inspiration.Big Grin That looks a lot like Harrison Sheep to me.

Best advice right here. One bar can last me for 8-10 weeks using a loofah.
