What we’re seeing today is not just any soap, but handmade soap made old-world style. Eat your heart out, Ivory and Dove!Time for a side story!
My Japanese isn’t all that hot yet… during my trip to Japan this holiday, I stayed at a friend’s apartment with my cousin. I had to do the laundry. I spotted a package with lots of small packets and I couldn’t really read it, so I started the washer and emptied the packet into it, releasing a fragrant smell and yellow colored water. “Hm, this doesn’t seem right,” I thought. I don’t think detergent is supposed to smell good, and dipping my clothes in bright yellow water didn’t seem like a good idea.
On closer inspection, it turns out they were bath salts.
Sure smelled good though.
I guess it’s not really related to soap though. Close enough.I’m too lazy to look up those words in the dictionary, so I’m going to assume that my hunches are right–this soap is a combination of coconut oil and beef tallow, mixed with sodium bicarbonate and heated. At my local farmer’s market, there’s this guy that sells
Of course, you can’t judge the soap without using it first.Fats obviously have a much different and slippery texture so they enjoyed using it.
And that’s that. Actually, thinking about it, there wasn’t much NMB-ness in this episode. There was a lot of hype for that old guy though. Every time they showed him they put all these honorable adjectives next to him.
I guess the only thing I really noticed besides Akarin’s return is that Nana looks thinner. Maybe I’m just imagining things. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing to be thinner for her anyway, I’m starting to get worried when their waists are thinner than one of my legs. On the other hand, I like my legs. Squats all day, son.
