Clean up

Flimsy Reed Soap

Forgo commercially produced bar soap containing myriad unpronounceable chemicals, synthetic lathering agents and the same-old ho-hum fragrances. Instead, lather up with a Sacramento-based option, Flimsy Reed Soap. Each bar is handmade using all-natural oils and fragrances and contains no chemical preservatives.

Custom orders are welcome, but you can also choose from a variety of fresh scents, such as rosemary mint, with speckles of real mint leaves or the muskier cedar forest, with hints of vanilla, cinnamon and clove. Most bars come in 5-ounce sizes and are priced at $5.
