Lava Soap Review

Happy Thursday everyone! As you may know, Thursday is the day I do reviews. Today is not a tool review day. It is a review of something that is very important in the shop, SOAP! Clean up is a very important part of shop work, work around the house, and in the yard.

About Lava Soap
It is funny when you bring up Lava, so many people remember using it as a kid. In 1893, a bar soap formulated with volcanic pumice particles for extra scrubbing power was created in St. Louis, Missouri. Lava® was chosen as the name to remind consumers of the pumice it contains. In 1927, advertising helped build the Lava Brand as the brand that gets extra dirty hands really clean. In 1967, reformulation makes Lava more appealing with better scent and its signature green color. In 1995, the Lava Liquid hand pump was introduced. In 1999, Lava became part of the WD-40 Company.

Today we look at:

  • Initial thoughts
  • Light pumice
  • Subtle scent
  • Getting dirty with the Cabby
  • How it works on dried paint
  • Good rinse
  • Very soft hands
