soak - a giveaway
If you're a knitter you have probably already heard about Soak. I heard about it via Amanda who swears by it for all her precious things (knitting and stitchy alike). She sent me a couple of the single soak sachets and once I tried them out on quilts, I was hooked. But then I couldn't find it in the UK. Simply because I wasn't looking in the right places, because I'm not a knitter and I don't know where knitty folk go to buy their knitty stuffs.
Fortunately I was happily sat on twitter (as I tend to be most of the time) and I noticed Jacqueline (Lady Soak herself) tweeting about UK stockists. Well, I tweeted her back with a 'where where where?' and she told me (thank you Jacqueline). (Also here, here and here and here and here). So off I went and bought myself a nice big bottle. I had up until that point decided I would stock up when I was next stateside and bring it home with me in my luggage.
This is why it's great - it's gentle, you need a tiny bit, just a teaspoon for hand washing, I use a smidge more for the washing machine, but I only use the rinse cycle - Soak doesn't need to be rinsed out like regular soap. It smells really delicate - no harsh perfumes, just a lovely light scent (or unscented if you prefer).
Completely unrelated to anything stitched - it's great for make up brushes too. In fact, it's just great all round. You could pop one of the 120ml bottles into your suitcase when you went away and use it to rinse out your bikini or whatever. Or your smalls (is it just me that washes their underwear when they go away, as they're away? I always have done. Take my smalls in the shower with me. Is this too much information? Probably, sorry.)
I asked Jacqueline if I could get some single soak sachets to give away - to spread the love of Soak around to you guys. She said yes! Oh yay. So I have one big bottle (this lasts around 80 washes - because you really only need a teaspoon or so) and a set of single soak sachets.
So one lucky person gets the big bottle and then 1 other will get the sachets. I'll pick 2 winners in a week, just leave a comment on this post (just the one comment please) and make sure I have a way to contact you.
(International entries are welcome)
