Mysterious Perfume [Feb. 11th, 2014|06:43 pm]
I figured out where the unpleasant but mild perfume was coming from. My own hands! Traitors!

It turns out the soap in at least one of the bathrooms where I work is scented. I will check out all the nearby ones in case one has unscented (or better scented) soap. If not, I am considering bringing my own somehow.

Look for soap leaves (or make your own). They are super-thin slices of bar soap made to dissolve in one use. Because they are dry you can carry a bunch in a soap box or altoids tin in your bag without any mess.

You could probably make your own with a cheese slicer or vegetable peeler and a bar of your fave soap.

Research shows that all soap on the entire campus is the same (though admittedly, my sample size is quite small--three bathrooms in my building plus a bathroom across campus). Grr.

Interesting idea. I don't currently have a favorite bar soap, but I could quickly find one searching for the magic words, "AS SEEN ON TV." No, no, that's not what I meant. The magic words are "FRAGRANCE FREE."

I had been picturing a small bottle of Dr. Bronner's. Either the bottle or the tin could be kept in my desk, then transported in a pocket when needed.
