It's Shrunk With Age.


No, not what you were thinking of! laughing.giflaughing.gif

Soap!

We were clearing out our shed the other day & found an old trunk.

In it was a bar of LUX soap that would be around 35 years old.

Comparing it to current LUX soap, it seems to have shrunk considerably in size (length, height, thickness) & weight.

Old soap 120g Vs new soap 78g.

The only thing that's probably got bigger is the price.

 Nope. Apparently aging soap makes it harder therefore making it last longer. We'll see?

If someone gives me a nice smelling cake of soap, I usually put in my drawers (wooden cupboard drawers-just getting in first with you lo sheepish.gift) - smells beautiful wafting through your clothes.

When "soap on a rope" was the IN thing, I used to hang that in the wardrobe - no room now - my wardrobe area is about 6 inches wide - bit sad!

Probably a little of topic but picking up on hakos comment about things made in Australia. My wife is joining me here in Oman this week and prior to her coming over she has been asking me what is available here in the supermarkets. My answer has been just about everything that you can buy in Australia - Bega and Kraft cheeses, weet bix, canned beetroot, baked beans, her favourite Lux body washes, Flora, even Vegemite. The point is where ever I have been in the world supermarkets sell pretty much the same things and the same brands even if the packaging maybe a little different. What she won,t be able to get are products containing pork but hey they do a very good turkey bacon whick looks and tastes exactly the same without the fat. Dont know what I will do when I get home and the food is not spicy or guaranteed to be halal.

Cheers
BB
