Clean start for the new year so it's all about the soap! Jan 1 to Jan 31

We all like to start the new year off with a clean slate so I figured why not start a release challenge involving soap... how much cleaner can we get.

Any books with the word soap or names of soaps in the title and yes the authors name... so help me with the list...

Theme related prize to winner!

arm & hammer (title can have either word or both words)
bar (for bar soap)
bath
bleach
Breeze
bubbles
camay
Caress
Cheer
Coast
Dawn
Dial
Dove
Dreft (let's use Drift for this one)
Fairy (a UK detergent)
flakes
Gain
Head and Shoulders
Irish Spring
Ivory
Joy
laundry
Lava
Lever
lifebuoy
liquid
Oil of Olay (title can have the word oil in it. i doubt we will find any with oil of olay :-)
Palmolive
Pears
powder
Prell
Purell (Pure or Ell could be in the title)

Actually Diane-Fraser's question, but good to know - that always helps.

You think up the most unusual Challenges! I'll give it a try.

How about Lifebuoy (soap)?

Do shampoo names count too? Suave? Head. And Shoulders?

How about dish soap? Joy?

I don't know if you'd want to add bleach, but I think there's an anime series with that title.

theme songs

Oh dear! I guess we will have to have multiple theme songs! lol! love it! One of my favorite comedy skits (I think it was the Smother's Brothers routine) ... one would sing soap, soap, soap, soap, soap, soap, soap, soap and the other would ask what are you doing? to which the first would reply... singing about 8 bars :-).

Soap's no good without water.

(Unless it's the water-less hand cleaner type. Oh, maybe add Purell too.)

both...sorry...all my challenges ahre always both wild and controlled releases. still not feeling great and the doctor doesn't seem very interested in doing anything until after the holiday weekend. been to the er twice and to the doctors a couple times and nothing is being done except changing meds and putting me on a liquid diet and i keep feeling worse and worse. hopefully they will start running some tests instead of doing guess work.

...our furnace went out yesterday and the temps dropped to 25 over night. To make a long story short it needs a new motor (only 5 years old but this i what happens when your landlady won't do annual check ups on the unit) and they can't get one until tomorrow. I want to reboot and go back to when I was healthy and warm.

I have been working on Children's Books for ResQgeek's Becky's Hugs Challenge that begins February 1st, and while I may creatively find a few...the two Challenges do not overlap. Thanks for hosting another fun one. : ) Have been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, and hoping that both your health, and your home repair issues, are closer to full recovery! ; )

Have finally heard from zbird during the past week or so. Like many of us...she is still dealing with health issues and is currently unable to participate in BookCrossing at this time. I offered to help answer questions and such for the last Challenge (Vampires everywhere March 1 - 31 http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/526332) she has running for now...and also GroundHog and Clean Start. She said feel free. Maybe when she's up to peeking in on things, it will brighten her day to see the releases we have made. ; )
