Shop

My shop is located in Altoona, Iowa. I ship orders on Mondays and Fridays. Please let me know if you have questions thegrubhousesoap@gmail.com 

For a limited time I am offering a grab bag of various, unlabeled soaps. You get 8 bars of soap for $20! Interested?   

SHAMPOO/WHOLE BODY BARS: These bars of soap have some serious lather. They are great for using as shampoo or you can use them as a hand, face, or body soap. The difference between shampoo bars and regular bars of soap is castor oil. Castor oil adds lather to soap so that it works very much like a traditional shampoo. If you have never used a shampoo bar, you simply wet the bar and work up a lather by rubbing the soap on your wet scalp and hair. It may take time for your hair to adjust to a natural, detergent-free shampoo and you may find that you need to add a vinegar rinse or a conditioner.
