The Muddy Petticoat

(7 customer reviews)


This vanilla scented bar soap looks just like a white lace petticoat dipped in the mud! Elizabeth Bennet was not going to let a little mud deter her from visiting Jane at Netherfield.

“Yes, and her petticoat; I hope you saw her petticoat, six inches deep in mud, I am absolutely certain…To walk three miles, or four miles, or five miles, or whatever it is, above her ankles in dirt, and alone, quite alone! What could she mean by it? It seems to me to show an abominable sort of conceited independence, a most country-town indifference to decorum.”

“It shows an affection for her sister that is very pleasing,” said Bingley.

“I am afraid, Mr. Darcy,” observed Miss Bingley in a half whisper, “that this adventure has rather affected your admiration of her fine eyes.”

“Not at all,” he replied; “they were brightened by the exercise.”

    I received my order from @northangersoap this weekend & was thrilled with the product! The quality of the soap is excellent and the packaging is incredibly thoughtful! A beautiful gift for any JaneAusten fan! ??????

    Perhaps my favorite of all the ones I ordered in this first shipment (Shelves in the Closet is a very close second). This one smells lovely – not overpowering (none of them are cloying, which is great), but lovely scent that doesn’t fade out.

    My mother and I thought this was such a wittily thought-out soap!

    My order arrived on time, well packaged, and ready to give as the gift that it was. I did unwrap it from it’s paper and linen to see that it looked exactly as shown in the pictures and scented nicely of vanilla.

    When it was used, I was told that it was gentle, but cleaned well and left no soap residue. It isn’t too soft and doesn’t disintegrate too quickly especially since it is placed on a soap dish that is ridged.

    All in all, it is a beautiful product that I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again for myself or someone else.

    Love the name and the packaging! The smell is delicious! The soap itself is excellent. This was a lovely gift to myself!
