Wash your hands! Wash your hands! Wash your hands! That is the mantra for health in this time of Covid 19. I like bar soap rather than soap dispensed from a bottle with a pump. And my favorite soaps are made by the Equus Soap Company. I have been using their Bit Balm for my horse for a few years now. Two years ago at Christmas I got some of the soaps to give to friends as gifts. They got such good reviews that this past Christmas I decided to gift a few bars of these hand made soaps to myself. And I am so glad I did.
In this time of Covid I have never washed my hands as much as I do now. The Equus soaps are excellent. Here is what I do. I wet the front and back of my hands.
Then I start to work up a lather with the soap.
I rub front and back of my hands and in between my fingers. I’m sure you all know the drill. I do this for the required 20 seconds. And the Equus soaps comes up with a great foamy lather.
The insidious little cells of CV19 have their fat layer of protection broken down and are carried off with the soap bubbles. This soap is a luxury and it does not leave your hands with a skin cracking Saharan dryness! What more can you ask for?
As an aside, my husband , who took the photos for this post, made sure to position the little figure of Queen Elizabeth in the bg. She has a solar powered purse and she waves continuously as long as there is daylight. This little figure has been on our kitchen window waving for at least a decade. Well, that’s the Queen for you. Tireless. Consistent. Never gives up. So we should all be inspired by her as we stay home.
