Perhaps because of my age I’ve always been a huge fan of soap on a rope. There’s something deliciously Seventies Love-God about it. These days, however, they’re harder to come by than a competent plumber.
How about this whopper from Heathcoate & Ivory then? Weighing in at an impressive 300g (i.e big) it’s scented – but not overly so – with sweet basil, fennel, lime, bergamot and orange and hags beautifully on your shower knob. And just look at the patriotic packaging! What’s not to like?
Heathcote & Ivory’s Soap-On-a-Rope costs £7 and is available from www.heathcote-ivory.com
