Have recently been in touch with zbird, and as she continues to struggle with health issues, with your help, I have decided to brighten her year...Happy February Birthday, zbird!!! ; D...by hosting this Release Challenge she created again this year...FOR FUN, although a surprise or two for participants did turn up for last years event!!! ; )

No need to sign up. Everyone can post their releases here when the time comes, and THANK YOU for participating!!! ; )

*****************************************************************
From zbird's original Challenge...

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 author's name. Embedded words in the title, author's name, or across words also count, as well as any and all forms of release. Releasing for Multiple Challenges is also encouraged!!! ; D

We're going to be HAVING FUN while cleaning up!!! : D

Great minds think alike, NancyNova...happy to "see" you joining in again!!! ; ) Just stopped in to "gather the list" myself (I can certainly post it here, if anyone prefers that...it just got so long last year with everyone's amazing creativity, that I thought providing the link would make the thread a little shorter for everyone), as I have several books from other BCers who needed help releasing them that I am planning to take to several LFL's in my area, in between some Wild Releasing!!! ; )

I'm interested in the fate of this Little Free Library as authorauthor said that her family will be selling buying another house in the future. I wonder what this portends for her Little Free Library? It certainly would not match her new house, :/

This is the Turkish word for TIDE.

https://en.wikipedia.org/---/Tide_%28brand%29

...or are we looking for words in English only?

No need to stick with English only in my book, so ALO has been added to the list, as being all-inclusive is what I am all about, and it adds to one's foreign language knowledge base, as well!!! ; ) In fact, let's add the Latin American version [ACE] listed in the Wikipedia link you provided, too...& while VIZIR [Tide in Poland] from the same link may be difficult to find, we'll add that one, as well. Oh, & further down in the link it states that Tide is sold in the UK as [Daz Go-Pods]...lets count any of those words...because you're always so good at finding embeddeds!!! ; D
Profile Image
I haven't found an ALO word yet, but I'll be looking! I also noticed that ACE was added last year! Take a look because I already found a book with ACE in it recently...which I will soon release.

I seriously doubt if I'll find a book with VIZIR in the title or author name! LOL

I might have some extra words for the list. Is "Marseille soap" ("savon de Marseille") already on the list? And "Aleppo soap"? And "groene zeep" (Dutch for "soft soap")? I checked the list but I'm unsure. Maybe it's an idea to add those as well.
