Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps

For years I neglected to wash my wet suit. I would come home from surfing, climb into the shower, rinse my suit and hang it out to dry. Done deal. I never thought to wash it. It never smelled. But after a few months of surfing two to three days a week, with my suit sitting in a plastic tub night after night, it no longer smelled like butterflies. Enter Dr. Bonner.

First time I heard of Dr. Bonner's Magic Soaps, Karissa and I had driven south to surf, eat pizza and drink blackberry beer. We stopped at Cannon Beach Surf, an iconic shop along Oregon's northern coast, to check out Mark's collection of surf boards. Shooting the proverbial shit, we asked Mark how they managed to keep all of their rental suits clean. "Magic Soap," he replied.

Water, soap, wash by hand, do not rinse, hang dry.

I now wash my wet suit once a week.

Smells like peppermint.
