Fire in the Hole explosively awesome campfire soap: Inspired by friends, whiskey, explosions, and good times

The first attempt at making Fire in the Hole soap came on a weekend in May. I know this very specifically, because I wasn't camping that weekend, and it was our annual May Trip. We had planned on going camping with friends -- one of those crazy weekends of drinking and shooting and lighting things on fire -- but it was our first year of Outlaw Soaps, and small business ownership being what it is, we couldn't see to drag ourselves away for the day-long drive to meet our friends in an obscure corner of the Mojave.

If you want to cut to the chase and pre-purchase a bottle of body wash, make your selection: Blazing Saddles Body Wash (the sexiest body was ever) The Gambler bourbon, tobacco, and leather Body Wash

The Soap Sack?

This here is a soft "boulce" (so says the description on the wholesale site) soap bag with the remnants of a bar of Lust in the Dust all squished up inside. I have been using this little sack for the past two or so weeks. I ordered these on a whim just to see how they worked out, and then totally forgot about them until Ruth asked me what we're going to do with them. I asked to try one, and now here you're seeing the results of those weeks of testing.
