Why put felt onto soap? It acts as a gentle exfoliant, you don't need to use a washcloth or scrubbie. And as soon as you're done, the wool wicks the water down and away from the bar, keeping it hard and dry. It will outlast a naked bar of soap by far. This gentle, superfatted soap is scented with Port Orford Cedar essential oil, a natural insect repellant. This is a favorite with hunters, fishermen, campers and wildlife photographers. Wild animals can't pick up your scent if you use this. Repels fleas, ticks, mosquitos, but NOT yellowjackets, unfortunately. It's the perfect dog wash. Dogs don't hate the scent, and won't roll in something icky after being washed.
