Shearer's Soap

As a kid growing up Triumph & Disaster’s owner’s job was to clean the woolshed floors so the shearer's had a tidy workplace when they started each morning, cleanliness is next to godliness and all that.

 

He has two outstanding recollections of that time, the first is learning to roll a cigarette, the other is the smell of the soap the shearing gangs used to scrub with before heading to 'smoko'.

 

Like all good memories the facts have no doubt been embellished with time, but when making this body soap it was that smell he wanted and perhaps more importantly the association with a hard days work, that it evoked.
