Snowbound w/o any allergen-free soap to shower with? 

Snowbound w/o any allergen-free soap to shower with? Use baking soda &/ or olive oil. Baking soda is a wonderful exfoliant & cleanser for you entire body, you can even use it on your head and hair. You can also use olive oil, too. Why? fresh oil dissolves the oil & dirt that has packed into your pores. Cover your face and body w/olive oil, then take a warm, wet cloth and wipe it off. The only drawback here, is that if you do this regularly in the shower, the oil could clog your drain a bit. I also use olive oil as a moisturizer after a shower. Smooth onto wet skin and dab your sweet self w/ a towel.
