Lava Soap isn’t just for Dudes that work on cars!


With the hundreds of DIY and craft projects I have done over the years, I have learned a few tricks to some behind-the-scenes occupational hazards like, how to get glue and paint off skin. Lava Soap is my go-to.

I have used Lava soap ever since I can remember.  After all, it’s been around for over 100 years (OK, I’m old but not that old)! I actually keep a bar in our downstairs bathroom next to the garage. My husband uses it after working on his Jeep or changing the oil in the cars. I use it during and after doing my DIY and craft projects.

I even have a special soap dish I keep it on! I found this one while antique shopping.

Lava Soap for DIY and Crafts

Lava soap contains pumice and pumice is a by-product of volcanic activity, hence the name Lava Soap. It’s heavy duty and honestly the best out there. It’s great for removing grease, grime, oil, ink, paint, glue, resins, caulk, and more. It also now comes in a liquid form as well. Sure it’s great for auto enthusiast, but like I said in the video, it’s not just for Dudes who work on cars!
