Known as the soap of Stockists, Designers, Artists, Painters, Restoration Junkies, and Faux Finishers; Scrubby has quite the reputation.  Scrubby is a fabulous dual purpose product that deserves some attention.  Get ready… Get Set… for the skinny on Scrubby.

Scrubby soap comes to us from the Sunshine State of Florida. It is an AMERICAN made product by a family owned and operated company.  Scrubby’s cleansing power is derived from ALL NATURAL biodegradable citrus oils. There are NO harsh synthetic cleaning agents in this little loaf of soap!

Scrubby Soap

But wait…there’s more!  This creative cleanser contains….wait for it…an actual SCRUBBER! Yes, a SCRUBBER is embedded into the soap!  Or the scrubber is infused with the soap. Either way, it’s like they took a super soft loofah-ish brick and tucked it into a dreamy bed of see-through citrusy soap.


Scrubby is the perfect product to use when cleaning up after your Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® projects.  For those of us who like to “dive” fingers first into our Chalk Paint®, Scrubby saves the day!   The natural citrus oils are non-irritating to the skin and the gentle built-in scrubber aides in effortless cleansing.  The scrub pad is also easy on the manicure and gets off the dried paint around the cuticles and under the nails painlessly.


Opening a fresh pack of Scrubby gives you a chance for a little aroma therapy before you clean up.  Don’t let this opportunity get away!  Peel open your pack and breathe deeply!  You will experience the intense mouth watering fragrance of Florida citrus.  Refreshing!  Now get to scrubbing!


Scrubby’s grease cutting and odor fighting power is perfect for mechanics, cooks and fishermen.   Artists and painters also love Scrubby soap for its ability to effectively clean and condition their brushes.  Keeping quality brushes cleaned and conditioned gives them extended life.

Now you’ve got the skinny on Scrubby soap.  Come on down to Bathandmore, snag your own bar of Orange or Lemon Scrubby and make clean up a little more enjoyable!

Some of the Reasons Chalk Paint® is So Good!

Annie Sloan‘s unique decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, is a very special paint for very many reasons:

1. Chalk Paint® is the BEST paint for painting furniture by a long way
2. No need to prime or prepare
3. Extremely low VOC so it is good for the environment
4. You can use it on any surface, indoors and out (the outside of our shop was painted in it — perfect!)
5. You can use the paint by diluting it with water to make a wash to show the wood grain
6. The colours are mixed intelligently and the website shows how you can adapt your colours for your use
7. It’s a girls’ paint, but boys can use it too
8. It’s flexible so you can be creative and change your mind
9. It allows your walls to breathe so it is perfect for cottage walls
10. You can use it as an impasto (thickly) – leave the lid off to thicken
11. We’ve been making it since 1990 so it’s tried and tested

Burgundy Chalk Paint®

Burgundy Chalk Paint®

Inspired by Pompeii, this rich color has a strong neoclassical heritage and is perfect for sophisticated painted furniture.
