Purity Soap by Reef Botanicals

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 23, 2012 5:27 pm

I really can't say enough how great this soap is for cleaning sponges and brushes - I've blogged about it twice now. Here is the latest BLOG POST

Larissa has now put the soap into a tub just for face and body painters to use! Well... I guess anyone who needs to clean objects could use it but why waste it on them? Wink

This is what is does to sponges:



Links are on my blog post to her shop.

As luck would have it, I currently have $15 in my paypal account. I have also been trying to find a good new soap. Thanks, Shannon!

I'm a convert! I used my soap tonight to clean a whole bucket full of sponges. They cleaned up so well that I dug through my sponge bag and pulled out all of the ones that had stains. Washed those too. This stuff works!

I spoke to her about the orders taking forever to get to us. She had posted the sale as soon as she ordered the tubs, but the tubs ended up back ordered or something of the sort. She couldn't make the soap until she got the them, and she didn't get them until last week.

She shipped them out as soon as she made the soap, though. I got mine today. You should probably get yours Monday or Tuesday.

Oh! Okay, that's good to know - thanks. I was going to call/email her but thought I'd give it another couple of days first.

fingers crossed!

Awesome! So it's just Castile soap?

I have a ton of soap-making supplies, I'll have to make a big batch of it. It's only 3 ingredients, very easy.

Honestly, I used Castile Soap before I found her soap & it didn't get my sponges as clean as this Purity does.....not sure what she puts in there, but it seriously works!

Hmmmm... how interesting! She only lists those 3 ingredients, as well. Maybe she uses different ratios than others. I'll have to try a batch and see how the results are.

Great soap! Won't say that it took away all the old set-in stains on every sponge but got rid of the some of them and was a definite improvement on others. I'm a Purity convert and glad I went ahead and got two tubs (save on shipping in the long run). Thanks Shannon and thank your friends for me as well for a great product!

Glad you like it. Yes, there are SOME stains that just don't come out - those are my stay at home paint myself sponges.

And some of the greens in the brushes are not completely removed, but they are much less noticable. Most of the other colours, though, have come completely out.

Part of the trick is to NOT let the brushes and sponges dry out completely before washing them. I always put my used sponges in a bucket and keep them saturated (by dumping my dirty water into the bucket too) and then rinse and wash at home. If they never dry out pretty much ALL the colour will come out.

I also have found (over years of doing this) that leaving sponges to soak will get out stubborn stains... discovered this when I left a bucket of washed sponges sitting in rinse water for several days (I was busy, NOT lazy!! Rolling Eyes ) and lo and behold all of the "stains" had vanished. It was just clean water. So letting the water saturate the sponges will shift out any pigments that have worked their way into the middle of the sponge. That's my "secret" to clean sponges.

Thanks for the tip. Most of the stains that didn't come out had been there for a year. Live and learn about how to prevent the stains but yeah I do love that soap! Thanks again!

It's just castile soap though. I can get half a gallon of pure castile soap for the price of this 8 oz tub at my local health food store.

I have tried others too... I use this soap, Purity, on myself as well and it is just excellent. I wash my hair with it too. Skin is soft, cleared up some contact dermititis on the inside of my thumbs... AND it cleans sponges and brushes!!

It is pure castile soap... they just do it is some sort of magic cauldron or something.

Only had bars when I went to order, but I'm going to give them a try...my sponges look awful. Also find fp really doesn't clean off some plastic very well...look at some artist water containers, I'm hoping this soap will help.
