Pears Soap

Posted in ephemera, Health by joncrispin on 06/05/2013

My favorite soap is Pears.  I have used it for the last 25 or so years.  Some time ago the company was bought by Unilever and the original formula was changed.  I noticed a difference as did most other users.  (Here’s a link to an amusing piece in the Guardian.)  I was bummed, but have gotten used to the new smell and feel.  Yesterday I was cleaning out my bathroom cabinets and came across this soap dish way in the back on a shelf.  When I opened it I was happy to find a bar of the original Pears that had been abandoned well before the change.  /  It’s the little things, I guess, that sometimes can make life a bit brighter.
