Trimmin' and Elimin'!

Simply Soap has done some trimmin' and elimin'. I can only keep up with just so much inventory, so we decided to trim-and-elim some soaps that seem to have either lost their popularity pizazz, and/or were so similar to another soap as to be redundant. 

Now, every time I've done this in the past, I get lots of unhappy folk saying I took away their one-true-love-soap and how-dare-I? BUT, any soap elim'd has the opportunity to make a comeback if enough customers ask....OR, you can always order a custom batch! Just email me! wink emoticon
