I shared this story with Brian Krampert about his new Bay Rum Soap and he thought I should share it with all of you.  So, here is a copy of the PM I sent him.  I hope you enjoy it as much as Brian and his wife did. Smile

Quote:JOHNNY WROTE:
Brian,

Let me share a funny (and for some, not so funny) soap story.  Two weeks ago my daughter and the twins (age 3) came for a weekend visit.  Now, I have never been one to make my home kid proof.  I have always told my kids and grandkids what was off limits and there has never been a problem, until two weeks ago.

On a Saturday morning early I ask the kids if they wanted to watch grandpa shave, so away we went.  That morning was a Krampert's morning as I was using your soap and after shave.  When I got through the granddaughter rubbed my cheek and said smooth grandpa and you smell good.

Back to the kitchen and I fed them some cereal while my wife and daughter were starting to get up and stir.  Forward to right around dinner time when both kids were feeling bad and said they had a stomach ache and would hardly eat anything for dinner.

About 8PM both were in the bathroom  throwing up to no end.  My wife called me in to the bathroom asking for some help and when I got there what a mess it was.  While I was helping I noticed an odor you don't normally detect when children are sick, I detected the scent of bay rum.  I thought to myself, surely not, then I checked my container of Krampert's Finest Bay Rum Soap where I discovered 75-85% of it was missing.  With a smile on my face I asked the kids, did you eat grandpa's good smelling soap, and  with a nod they said yes.

Needless to say, they had no dinner that night.  But the excitement was not over.  About 2AM in the morning when the first part of the soap hit the intestines, the poop flowed freely.

That is a shaving experience neither myself nor the grandkids will soon forget.  And the next time I tell them something is off limits, I bet they listen.

Johnny

Not sure how much they ate and how much they flushed down the toilet to hide the evidence.  I guess they did not think grandpa would notice the missing soap, after all, the container was almost new.

A good story to tell. My mom and her sisters ate  washing detergents in the early 50ies. And if it smells that good.... thanks for sharing!

Probably, the best way to get kids to listen to you without having to be so stern! Biggrin

I can tell you from experience from when I was a kid what a bar of Ivory soap taste like.  I had both my mother and grandmother own two different occasions wash my mouth out with it.  Did not take me long to learn to keep my mouth shut.

That's funny, I had the same thing happen to me when I was 8. It wasn't shave soap though, it was Red Man chewing tobacco.   Eyepop

That's why I don't like cilantro. To me it just tastes like soap.

Obviously not like your soap, Brian, or Johnny's grandkids wouldn't have gone near it. Winky

This is exactly why I can't eat Gari, the pickled ginger that accompanies sushi/sashimi. To me, it tastes like the soap that my family used to jam in my mouth as a child in their failed attempt to rid me of my foul mouth.

I regularly let my kids sniff my soaps and give me their brutal honesty on what they smell like, but now I wonder if I should expand their testing.

Mmmmmm, Bay Rum Barf  Tongue
