While cleaning out stuff in in mothers bathroom storage closet, I came acroos these two relics. As they say a blast from the past, most of the older people on here will remember the ads on the tube for these.


I wonder how much they will bring on flea bay?;)

Not much for the Lava, it's still available, and I still use it.

I was referring to the classic packaging and the green color of the bars. and I wasn't aware that the lifebouy floated across the pond either! :nrocks: Learn something every day on here. :coffee:

They used to have Lava soap at a couple of places I worked at years ago. I'd use it again if I could get it locally at a reasonable price.

Lifebuoy soap was what my mother used to wash out my mouth when she didn't approve of my 8-years of age vocabulary experiments!!

The Lifebuoy soap that we had when I was a kid was definitely not advertised as classic scent or deodorant. It was soap!
