The American Soapbox is a humorous commentary on American society and culture. The first non-fiction work by horror/suspense novelist Billie Dean Shoemate III, this is a no-holds-barred, all-gloves-off take on American life. Brutally honest, hilariously open and even touching at times, The American Soapbox is not a book for the narrow-minded. This isn't literature. This isn't art. This is personal.
Have you ever wondered what is so special about homemade soaps? Well, the best thing is that they are not made in bulk, and could be customized as per your choice and preferences. The usual soaps that we buy from markets are packed with chemicals and synthetic substances. They may harm our skin and even cause allergies. Every ingredient might not suit your skin. Some may cause reactions. Everybody has different skin types. So what suits one person may not go well with others. It is only when you try and test that you will come to know the results. Another aspect is the fragrance. Everyone has personal choices for the smell of the soap too. And the market bought soaps often come with high price tags. All these might make you rethink the next time you go to the store to purchase your soaps. And what probably do you think is the most effective and easy solution for these problems? Yes, it is to make your own soaps at the comfort of your home.
