As we continue, Ask Alan, we’d like to remind that Alan has had a little help in his replies. In addition to Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome Alan has speech impediments that make it hard for most people to understand what he says. Because of that he tends to use fewer words when speaking, so with his help we fill in some of the blanks. His typing is up to six words-per-minute and so he should be answering questions on his own any time now; until then we’ll give him a little help.

Chris D. asks, After receiving one of your baskets my wife told me to keep my hands off the soap pouches. How can I get my hands on those soap pouches?

A. Hi Chris, thanks for asking and are you in luck! We’ve just made our sisal and terry soap pouches available separate of our baskets. You can find them along with all of our merchandise when you click the Shop button at the top of the page or here:

Watch for our washcloths and hand towels sold separately beginning in May!
