First, after many "sleepovers" over the years, she knows I'm a big fan of the whole long soak in a deep bathtub in the evening, plus I'm a hunter of both whitetail and game birds. Finding a soap that doesn't scream "redhead in a blind" isn't easy (and by the way, washing with Dove soap does NOT help during Dove season).
Hey baby, do you smell like Acorn?
Dirty Buck Soap is the brainchild of Tracy Gunn of Edmond, Oklahoma, who after spending 14 years in Corporate Sales Management in the animal pharmaceutical industry, found herself out of work. To help keep busy, she began making soap. One day a friend asked her to make a soap that smelled like dirt Tracy, being an avid hunter, understood the need for a product made of natural, not chemical ingredients that would do more than the touted but rarely accurate claim of "eliminating human scent".
Tracy had been selling her kitchen made products at gun shows, where she met Midwest Chick, but with word of mouth spreading and folks like Bass Pro and others expressing commercial interest, she knew she had a winner. Although the operation has outgrown the kitchen, Tracy decided to keep it simple, still making every bar herself, with the help of her two teenage sons.
It's not just for guys. More and more women are hunting now, and a product that doesn't make us smell like "Summer Squash" (roadkill) or "compost heap" is a plus.
Dirty Buck Soap washes away the bacteria that causes human scent and bathes you with the natural scent of the woods you hunt in for several hours. You can even wash your hair with it. Even better, the concentrated natural oils are very moisturizing without leaving a chemical film on your skin (ever lose a buck because you just HAD to scratch that itch just as Mr. 10 pointer showed up?)
If you hunt, or have a loved one that does, try some. The acorn scent is going to be in the guest bath shower year round, everyone likes it.
But sometimes smelling like dirt isn't what you want when it comes time to crawl under the covers during non hunting season. So Tracy started a line for the woman who just LOVES her bath and wants a sexy smelling soap to go with it.
Dirty Annie's Soaps.
Because sometimes folks, as I pull down the covers and turn off the light on my nightstand I realize just how MUCH I enjoy being a girl.
