Wash your hands. Use soap.
Saturday's the perfect day for Whole Foods. I ate my way through the product samples while gathering a few items. My best buy for the quick trip was good soap, 3 for $6. I selected varying shades of white and fragrances: the ivory bar for Lavender, cream for Ginger Pear, and pure white for Clean Linen.
I'll use them with great pleasure.
Meanwhile, my sisters of perpetual charity are gathering singly-wrapped bars of soap for Lutheran World Relief. Last year we added 450 pounds of bar soap to a major shipment of health supplies sent overseas to refugee camps. A bar of soap (when water is available) is a great personal boon to miserable conditions.
What is elegance? Soap and water!
