Weekly Affirmation: Travelling with Soak

Every Thursday we post a comment, tweet, email or secret message we’ve received from one of our Soakworthy customers (stores, fans, consumers, friends). Sometimes, on a rough day, it’s really helpful to read an inspiring message from someone in our community. Someone who appreciates what we do. Someone who is as passionate about Soak as we are. We appreciate all the love that comes our way. Really we do.


From Karen, in a comment on the blog.

“As much as I overall suck at packing the one thing that I always pack now is Soak soap. A lingerie store in Toronto got me on to it. I use it for all my hand-washables at home but took it with me when I travelled to Europe. I can wash tanks and camis in the sink and throw them over the shower rod to dry. In Europe we used it to wash socks, underwear and sweaters.”

Thanks Karen! Soak is a great way to stretch your clothing a little further while on vaction. It is especially handy now that we have our minisoaks and  flight friendly 3oz sizes.

Soak, on the Shopping Channel! Watch it now.

We’ve been busy, and a bit out of touch with the blog. Thankfully it has been all in the name of good things and lots of work! We’ll be more on top of this moving forward.

Yesterday, as you may already know, we had our debut on the Shopping Channel! It was a very exciting day, full of new friends, new activities and selling Soak!

Jacqueline was the guest on-air, and Chris watched the numbers and helped from the sidelines. When experiencing such new and exciting adventures, it helps not to be alone!

We are very pleased to share with you the link to the great gift set we made, exclusively for them (you have to click to see it), as well as some awesome photos of the television that Chris took in the green room (the nice place where guests wait when they aren’t on air) and Jacqueline’s Dad took from home (the nice place where parents watch proudly as their children sell stuff on TV). We love the grainy look of the shots, combined with the TV buying information. All scents are available online, so get them now! Thanks for watching. We’ll let you know our next air date as soon as we have it.

Oh, and did we mention, you can even watch the video of our on-air episode too! (you have to click on the video link above the image on the Shopping Channel page selling Soak…)

Check it out! Thanks again for choosing Soak. We wouldn’t be where we are today, without you.


Keeping a secret, part 1: How to come up with a good secret.

Jacqueline has been brewing up at storm of new products for fall. She’s not always the best at keeping a secret, but sometimes, you have to do, what you have to do. She’s about to spill the beans!


New product development is my favorite job at Soak. Not only is it what I was trained to do (with my industrial design background), but it’s also really quite fun. So, when the stars aligned last year and I was introduced to a great idea, I got straight to work. It has been hard to keep this project under wraps, but it has been worth it. In true Soak style, we’ve been able to design and deliver a unique product with great friends.
Top Secret.

Following the creation of successful gift packs such as our travel packs and Heel/ Solemate boxes, we wanted to create a permanent collection of gift items, from Soak. That’s how the Soakbox was born. It’s a unique concept, filled with new products, unique items (like, say, custom hand-dyed yarn) and retail-worthy packaging. Watch in the coming days for more details on the new product.


101 things to do with Soak | 014 Carrie separates your laundry

Author: Ngoc

We had a very busy day at the frolic last weekend. Carrie and Phil’s popularity soared as they flew off our tables and into the welcoming arms of their new families. Carrie and Phil have many uses and this week, I’m going to talk about my main use for Carrie.


How many of you have one hamper and end up mixing your delicates and hand washables in with the rest of your dirty laundry? How often have you accidentally thrown one of these hand wash only items into the machine? I have enough slightly pink tinted white shirts, bras with bent underwires, and stretched out lace panties that I’ve learned to carefully sort my dirty laundry instead of throwing it all in the washing machine together. Carrie makes the job of sorting slightly less painful.

I keep Carrie in my closet where she discreetly holds my not-so-fresh undergarments and delicates. My silks, cashmeres, panties, bras, lace, and sequins all go in her instead of with my everyday laundry. Trust me, your pretty bras and expensive garments will thank you for this little extra bit of care.

At the end of the week, I just grab her handles, and easily take all my delicates to the sink to hand wash all at once. Nice and painless.
