Review of Softsoap Pure Foaming Hand Soap Fresh and Lemongrass Scents

.Softsoap Pure Foaming Hand Soap, 8 fl oz
I was excited to try out the Softsoap Pure Foaming Hand Soap since it is free of dyes and alcohol free, along with a pleasant scent to it.
Softsoap Pure Foaming Hand Soap is the perfect soap for getting your hands clean without any added dyes or alcohol.  I have always used Softsoap for washing my hands and with the added benefit of Softsoap in a foaming brand it's even better!  According to the manufacturer Softsoap Pure Foaming Hand Soap is a simple formula that is dye free, alcohol free, has 100% natural fragrance, and effectively cleans and purifies.  You can enjoy this soap in Fresh and Lemongrass scent.  
Checkout 51 OffersFoaming soap is great for cleaning hands because you can use just one pump to effectively wash your hand.  It lathers up quickly with a rich lather, is gentle on your hands and rinses off well leaving hands clean.   Both the Fresh and the Lemongrass have a light scent but it's not overwhelming and I really liked it.  Plus be hypoallergenic the soap is gentle on my sensitive hands.
It's also a great soap for when the kids or family come to visit because of it being dye free and a foaming soap the little ones are less likely to make a mess when they wash their hands. They also like the foaming soap better to wash with it just seems more fun to squirt it out of the bottle.  
Softsoap Pure is a clear soap which can easily be placed in the kitchen, bathroom or even in the shower.  I like the idea of using this soap during the gardening season when I come in from outdoor and have dirty hands.  Even though I wear garden gloves they don't alway protect 100%.  I can easily just squirt one pump of the Softsoap Pure foaming soap on my hands without worrying about the soap going everywhere else.
Another great thing is that when you are through washing
your hands there is no messy film residue left behind in your sink.  Since I have a white bathroom sink this makes it a big plus in my book. 
The fragrance in enjoyable and not powerful just a light scent and the best thing is my hands are clean.
In addition as a crafter I can easily be washing my hands several times a day while creating a project.  The Softsoap Foaming brand is gentle enough to use on a regular basis and does not dry out my skin.  It comes in a 8 fl. oz bottle and because with the Softsoap foaming soap a little goes a long way because you don't need to pump as much as liquid soap.
You can purchase Softsoap Pure Foaming soap in Lemongrass or Fresh scent at the following stores:
Available at mass retail, drug and grocery stores.
View the Price or buy online at 

It retails for around $2.50 but you can shop around and find it for less.
I was given Softsoap Pure Foaming Soap to Review by Colgate-Palmolive for review purposes.  The opinions are purely my own.

Fun Ideas and Ways to Organize your Fabric, Crafts and Yarn Storage

When it comes to storing my yarn and craft supplies I have a habit of just placing the yarn in baskets like the ones above, which is great for mobile projects. But when it comes to storing items I typically keep them in a closet or use storage cubes to place the items in which work well but I need a few ideas for smaller spaces and work spaces.

 Storage Cube Baskets work great for all sorts of crafts and storing small items and toys.   The first thing I wanted was a work area that I could use in a small space but still be able to store a few of my craft and work supplies in .  
The Foldaway Mobile Workcenter was perfect for a small space or room.   You can easily make it into a desk or fold it away to store it in a corner.  It is about 44 x 16 as a desk and it folds  Folded 29 1/2"H x 16"W,
 The Shoe Chest works well for yarn skein storage. You can hide it away in a closet or place it in your work area for easy access. 

  Document Boxes and Files are wonderful for holding patterns, small items, magazines and more.  Plus they can easily fit in corners, under beds and in closet spaces. 
 This Readers Stand makes a great tool for holding crafts and books while you work on them in your living room or bedroom.  Also ideal as a nightstand. The two-sided access makes sorting and selecting a cinch. Each compartment is nearly eight inches high.

Zipcode™ Design Decorative Storage Bin with Handles
One way to store your quilts or afghans is in a storage bin. Easily access them when you need them or use a bin like this to hold fabric or leftover yarn that you need to access. It's easy to carry and made of sturdy materials so it won't fall apart. 

Basics Wayfair Basics Under-the-Bed Storage Bag
Under the bed storage is one way to keep items out of sight but still have easy access to them while provide protection. Plastic totes can be bulky and take up a lot of space but these under the bed storage bed works well with all sorts of items including bedding, quilts, and crafts. Soft sides provide trim flexibility so the chest slides easily under beds (and because your things are safely encased, you might not have to vacuum first!). So rearrange the linen closet and use that enormous shelf under your bed—be savvy when you store.
Yarn Shelf Craft Organizer - Organize craft and yarn in one compact space. This one is reinforced so that it doesn't cave in. 

Clear Storage Bins with Dividers are easy to use and get out when you need something such as fabric, thread or other craft supplies. 
Mobile rolling carts are helpful when working with craft you need to take into other spaces or just move out of the way.
Plus they have a surface area that you can work on top of with your projects.
